Re: 270 wsm load???

I like Retumbo under the 140+gr bullets in the 270 WSM, I ran them in the 3300-3350 fps range. I switched to the 165 Matrix at 3060fps and haven't shot anything else since!

I'll have to +1 on the Matrix VLD's. 5-shots sub MOA out of my bone-stock sporter X-Bolt in 270 WSM. Thanks BnG for advocating the Matrix.

66.5 Gr Retumbo, Fed 215M, 2.920 OAL (max for my magazine, .025 off lands), 2975 fps from a 23" barrel. I wouldn't hesitate to pull the trigger on any game in NA.

Re: 270 wsm load???

Hey everyone, thanks for all the input and info....i dont know how hard it is to find reloading supplies where you live but here in ol Cheyenne Wy its damn near impossible but i found what i was looking for....I think the combo ill start with is RL-19, 140 Accubonds, Federal Gold Medal Match primers and Winchester brass and go from there. Ill let you all know how the shooting goes, ill probably start making my loads in the next few days. Thanks again!!

Re: 270 wsm load???

Hey everyone, I took my first set of test loads out and here are my results. I was using the 140 accubonds, 60-65 gr of RL19, federal 215 primers and once fired Winchester brass. Now keep in mind that im shooting a bone stock Winchester model 70 270WSM, there is nothing special about it. I think with playing with some 1/10 grain adjustments and COAL I can squeeze it down a bit tighter.....ill keep you updated.
