    270WSM, You've reach the max for your powder used. When your ES & Sd start to open & you are not getting any incease in velocity, your powder has maxed out. You will have to go to a faster powder (it can go either way sometimes and occasionally need a slower powder). You have to just keep testing until your powder matches correctly with your case and bullet. Good luck.

    Sounds like the perfect bullet to use to blow my head off after watching the last Lions game [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]. I just had a new 270wsm built that I've only taken to the range once so far---2MG

    270,

    Try some 7828. My chrony said 2900 fps MV out of a 270 Win. but they wouldn't shoot real well. About 3" @ 200 yds.

    Rather than waste the rest, I sent them to someone w/an AI. Haven't heard anything yet.

    These were 168gr RBBT prototypes that I was messing with.

    Roy you sent them to me! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] Now that racing and hunting season is over I can get on with the 169.5 grain testing. Out of my 270AI and 29 inch barrel I didn't have any problem getting 3000 fps with 7828 and sub 1 inch 5 shot groups. I'm going to work on the powders 7828, H-1000 and R-25. I use CCI250 mag primers. My cases can hold @67 grains max. I've been using @62 gr. of 7828

    I know [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] Didn't know whether to mention that or not. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img] Don't know who's touchy about what.

    It only took a few shots to realize that the 270 win is just too small for that bullet and I spend no further effort trying to get them to shoot better. 3" @ 200 yds is good enough for some, but not me.
