Re: .270 Winchester powder poll.

Although H4831 is the Classic powder for the 270 Win, I would start with RL-22. Don't forget RL-19. This is my favorite powder for the 280 Rem and 140 gr BT's.

RL 22 by a wide margin.

Re: .270 Winchester powder poll.

I have the same rifle. When I bought it, I decided I wanted a "go anywhere and do anything load", so I decided on the 140 Accubond too. I started off with H 4831sc and my search ended. Could I have attained more velocity? probably so. What I wanted was good velocity and GREAT accuracy and that is what I got. Out of my 22" ADL barrel, I get 2825 fps with 59 grs of H 4831sc, Fed 210m primer, WW brass and the 140 AB. Accuracy with neck sized brass is eyepopping (better then I deserve! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]) I used this load and rifle to shoot a nice 4x5 mulie at about 225 yards. Text book performance from the rifle and the Accubond. I don't think you can go wrong with R22, R19, IMR 4831 or H 4831.
