270 WSM and 140 Berger

What are you loading with the 140 Berger? Used 7mm 168 Berger last year on whitetail and it was devastating, want to try the 140 in 270 WSM this year

    This is a very good combination if your rifle will like a Berger!! I load mine with 71gr of Retumbo and light it with a Fed215 primer, .015 of the lands.
    I ran it over a chronograph last weekend again and it runs 3307FPS with around a 4 fps SD.

    I shot a cow elk last year at 335yrd and was very impressed with it's terminal performance !!! It functioned exactly how Berger says so this year the Berger is all I'm loading, no back up Accubond load and were going to push the range out to as far as I can.
