    I just recieved a box of Berger 150gr. VLD bullets from Midway yesterday. I am going to give them a try.Going to try AA Magpro and Ramshot Magnum powder with Winchester cases and magnum primers.

    140 Accubonds
    60.0 grains of IMR 4350
    Winchester mag primers
    This load is running 3100 fps with 3/4" groups from a factory Rem. 700.
    I don't think you will find a better bullet for deer in a 270 caliber. You don't have to worry about bullet performance at close or long range. I have killed between 20 to 30 deer with this bullet and haven't had any problems.

    gei,
    I have been shooting both the 130gn Ballistic Tip and 135gn SMK. I have tried various powders/primers (H4831SC,RL22,IMR4350,H4350/CCI BR2,9.5M) and my rifle pretty much groups everything I've tried in the half inch range. Nothing spectacular but nothing horrible either. I think it likes RL22 the best so far, but I have many more to try in her before we're done!
    I'm also looking to try some of the 140gn bullets (NBT,AB) and I think Barnes is coming out with a 120gn TSX. (I think they already have a 110gn) Those'll be screamers! I may try the Scirocco's and the VLD's that Berger is getting ready to hit the streets with soon.
    I haven't chrono'd anything yet, but I will as soon as I can.

    700XCR,
    Hey neighbor! I live in RIchland off'a Keene. We have been getting some snow, huh? I thought this was normal for this area (just moved here in Aug07) but everyone says it's a bit much.
    Were you ever in the Navy? I knew a guy in A school in Pensacola, Fl that had the same last name as you. Lost track of him over the years.
    It's snowing again! JohnnyK.
