.270win. Load for long range?

Hey guys, While I'm waiting on the barrel and stock for my Savage 300wsm I thought I could ask you guys what would be a good load for my Rem 710.
It has a 22" barrel, (1" in 10" twist rate), shoots .50" at 100yds with off the shelf 130gr. Gamekings. I haven't really messed with it much lately but it is a solid gun and would probably make a good tack-driver out to 600yds! What bullets, powder, primers, etc, would you guys think would be worth using.

Thanks Nathan,

It sounds as though you already have the load. However, if you wish to try something new, I would suggest the 130 or 140 Accubond.

Berger will have their 150 VLDs available in about 2 weeks. You may consider one of their 130, 140, or 150 VLDs.

I find that H4831SC, Re19, and Re22 work very well in the 270 to get your higher velocities.

Stoke it up with as much RL-22 as is appropriate, Non-Magnum Primer (CCI-200s) and a 140 grain bullet of your choice (boat tails are nifty) and go shoot stuff.

Don't chrono it or you'll loose confidence. Just work up the drop chart and get to hitting things a bit of a ways out there.

I did real fine with a "book" load bagging a lot of game. I then bought a chorno and the load was going only 2900 FPS. What a downer!!!! I then loaded it up to nearly 3200 FPS and didn't do any better on game and didn't make any longer shots but I sure felt like some kinda kewl dude.

What kind of velocity do you think is possible from the 22"barrel?

Plenty w/the right powder.

RL-22 should send quite a shock wave.

I really do love this gun, even though its a rem. model 710! It just feels so solid and shoots consistently. Its just a fun gun, not all serious like my 30" Savage 300wsm is going to be. Its just a point and shoot kind of gun that has great accuracy. Who could argue?;)

I shoot 63 grains of H-1000 behind 140 grain bullets and I get 3140, but I have a rather long barrel. I would guess that a 22" tube would be in the 3000 FPS ball park...
