Re: 270 winchester reloading

looks like this will be a compromise consisting of the following factors.

1. Must fit in the mag
2. Must have a jump to the lands (hunting use)
3. Using Winchester Brass
4. H4831 Powder...or H1000
5. CCI BR-2 Primers
6. going to try for 2800-2900 ft/s

Re: 270 winchester reloading

been looking at some data from various sources...

While I know that the relationship between powder charge and energy is not quite linear, it looks like I would need 59 grain of 4831SC or H1000 to get 2850FPS from a 165 grain bullet.

can someone with a Quickload verify this for me?? Barrel length is 27 inches

Mostly currious where pressures are at.

Re: 270 winchester reloading

You look like you should come up on a load, we start the wins at 52gr of H4831sc or 7828 with BR2's. If I remember right we load around 56 gr for 2830fps which is a little of the top but plenty good for what we do and it's ridiculous small groups. Seated deep to feed form the mag as also.
