.270 wsm powder

I was wondering on any powder suggestions to use in the .270 wsm that you guys have had any luck with. The gun is win mod 70 with a schillin #8 contoure 26 in barrel. I will be shooting the nosler 130 gr ballistic tip and I have, before the new barrel, tried 4831sc and also the reloader 19 powder and was just wondering if there are any others out there that maybe are better for the short mags or that others have had luck in shooting the .270 wsm with. thanks for any help.

I've had best accuracy with RL22 and IMR7828. I've also tried H4831SC, IMR4350, H4350, Hunter, Retumbo and XMR3100. The worst of all these groups was .75". JohnnyK.

Magpro for me too. I use Hornady 150gr SST's. Very accurate long range.

For 130's, I had great results with RL19. I currently shoot 140 Accubonds with MagPro. RL22 and IMR7828 work well too, Magpro seems to be faster.

Re: .270 wsm powder

thanks for the replys guys, I have tried reloader 19 and has worked pretty will with the other barrel but was just wondering if there was any other powders out there that may be better as far a velocity and accuracy goes.

Hey goodgrouper, I am using winchester brass, do you have any specific loads to try for reloader 19 and 17. I would really like to try the new reloader 17 but I am having a hard time finding it locally. Sportsmans here in riverdale doesn't stock it and the guy that I asked wasn't even aware that they made a reloader 17 yet. Any suggestions on where to go to get this stuff here in northern utah? thanks again guys.
