Re: 270 WSM 165gr VLD load help
I've been very impressed with the 165 Matrix thus far!! I'm shooting them out of a 27.5 in barrel @ 3053 with 66gr of Retumbo. I have ran them up to 3100 FPS but it started stringing them out a little. The barrel is getting pulled and going in for Nitriding so until it gets back I'll have to wait to finalize some loads and drops, initial loads and drops look very encouraging! I should have some 169.5 Wildcats by then also.
I would expect a 24in barrel to be running in the 2900-2950 range, I haven't had any luck with R17 speed powders with the 140 + gr bullets and getting velocity without early pressure. I think powders in the R22 to Retumbo speed are the one's to look at with the heavier bullets. I plan on giving 4831sc a run along with H1000 again.
I would be very interested in what Quickload kicks out!!
