Re: 270wsm loads.

I have got some N560 powder now,but i am still waiting for the Redding die set and Nosler E-tip.I have tried my Kimber with some fabric ammo,Federal Fusion 150grs(3 shot,25mm)and Federal with Nosler Accubond 140 grs(3shot,30mm).
I hope i will get some better accuracy with handloads.
Anyone tried Nosler E-Tip in 270wsm?

    I shoot a model 70 winchester with a 24'' barrel I shoot 63 grains of IMR 4350 at 3260 fps
    it shoots 1/4 @ 100yrds and 6" @ 1000 yrds I also used this same powder in my buddys howa 270 wsm it shoots about the same groups using 61.5 @ 3120 fps I would start at 58 grains going up 1 grain at a time, checking for pressure after each shot

    I get the same performance, with the same caliber and rifle, same load,(62.5gr@3200fps) using 140 Ballistic Tips or Accubonds, same POI. I have always been surprised on this site that the Model 70's get very low exposure. I have had several over the past 40 years of all generations including a couple of pre-64's. They have all shot equally or most of the time better than the Reminton, Savage , Kimbers, etc. I have owned....right out of the box. I expect it is the receiver design, making it more difficult to rebarrel and bed than the round actions which the gunsmiths prefer.

    I have tested some loads with Norma MRP powder,N550 and N560.

    My best 3 shoot group is 1"with N550 61,5grs 3295fps.
    But i have another problem.When i am starting to shoot with cold and cleaned barrel,the first shoot is going 3"to the right,the second 2"to the right and the last is going 1 1/4"to the right.
    My second 3 shoots group are also going to the right,but not so mutch.
    The third 3 shoots group is going in senter.

    That is wrong with this rifle,is it the barrell?

    MRP should be very fast with 140 Accubonds. Maybe the fastest of all. I shoot Accubonds close to the lands. Norma slow powders like MRP are scarce here. The importer Paul Co is all screwed up.
