    Just picked up a .270 two days ago and shot it for the first time yesterday. I literally went to my " go to" manual and picked out two loads using two powders and two bullets. I chose 140 Berger VLD's and Barnes 130 TTSX bullets. Well, the gun,( Browning A- Bolt) didn't like the TTSX as well as the Bergers. Long story short. 54.0 -RL19-140 VLD using fresh Federal 210 primers yielded .3 groups at 100, and groups in the .7 range at 200. Now I am not a fluent .270 man, I have always favored the sevens and thirties through the years, but this gun , load combo works. I have not chronographed it yet, but will soon. I beleive my COAL was around 3.336 plus or minus. It seemed to be fast,as I was seeing impact at 200 PDQ when I was shooting at that distance. I have not had that much experience with a .270 in the past, but it is enlightening to have one that shoots without a whole lot of fuss. Hope
    This helps. AIM SMALL, MISS SMALL 7STW.

    Why can you no longer buy 140 gr VLDs? I bought some last week from Powder Valley.
