Re: 270 winchester and 140 berger hunting bullets

I'll double check when I get home tonight to get you the exact specs but I believe the following will be true:

60.2 gr of H4831sc
COAL 3.245
recorded muzzle velo of 3005-3030 w/ 24" barrel

I've shot this load out to 1090 yards on a metal plate with great accuracy. Deer, antelope, and prarie dogs haven't liked it too much either.

Like I said, I'll double check that tonight and edit the post if incorrect.

Good luck.

Re: 270 winchester and 140 berger hunting bullets

I shoot the 150's, but my rifle also likes H4831SC the best, also tried RL 19, IMR7828SSC & IMR 4350. I use F215M primers.

3,000fps should be fairly easy to get. My 150's are at 3k fps.

Also I tried the "Jump Test" for seating depths. I tried .010", .050", .090" and .130" (these are all distances from lands, on my hunting rifle I didn't seat any into the lands). My stock Rem700 preferred the .050" jump the best. You may be limited by mag length on this. But I think it's worth testing, the different depths produced largely varied accuracy and SD's.

My rifle also prefers the .302" bushing for neck tension(Win brass, unturned necks).

I started out with the 130gr VLD's but didn't have enough neck to seat them close to the lands, so I bought some 150's and haven't bought another bullet since then.

The Berger's are very accurate and have proved devastating on deer.

Good Luck

Re: 270 winchester and 140 berger hunting bullets

I found that the IMR4350 at 42-43gr worked great with the 140's and RL 22 at 60-60.5 worked best with the 130's. And both of mine are loaded well off the lands and shoot .25" or better.
