Re: Favorite Loads for 270 AM?

That is what we used. You can get great accuracy from the fireforming loads so dont be scared to use them, they can be a lot of fun.

I think we had around 3100-3200fps on our fireforming loads and they would group very nicely.

show us some pics

Re: Favorite Loads for 270 AM?

Thanks lerch and Bill B for your responses. Another question, if you don't mind. What is your cartridge OAL? I have been at 3.680" and see Kirby was at 3.775" on another post.
I only have 35 fireformed pieces of brass, can't wait to get lauching them long range after barrel break in. I'll get pictures in the next day or two, I'll start another post under equipment reviews. Thanks again for your help!

We load them .010 off the lands to start with and then tweak it from there to tighten groups up, but you may not need too.
