Re: accuracy load?

I think you will find more accuracy when you find the COAL your rifle likes best.
Most factory .270s have llooong throats to accommodate the 160gr class round nosed bullets.
Find the lands and back off the length to around .020"-.050" off, and work up the load from there. Keep your magazine length in mind.
My COALs are way out there now, but man does she shoot! More velocity with less pressure too.
Good luck, be safe and have fun.

Re: accuracy load?

I know you're inquiring about 130 grainers, but I have found an accuracy load with the 140 grain Accubond with 54.5 grains of H4350 and a CCI 200 primer seated to COAL of 3.355.

The rifle is factory A-bolt with a Timney trigger. My wife took a great bear with it this year.
