Re: Light 270 rounds

I like the 90 grain Sierra over 54.0 grains of Reloader 15. Never clocked the speed but it's about 5/8 inch at 100yds and still tight at 200yds. Same bullet with IMR 4350 gives the same accuracy. Got that load from an Ed Matunas article many, many years ago.

Re: Light 270 rounds

I have used Speer 100 gr HP with 57 to 58 gr of AR2209, Winchester primer in a Ruger M77 22" to get 1/2" group @ 100 yds - velocity est 3200 fps. These have worked well on goats out to 300 yds
I also use 130 gr Sierra spitzer with 51.5 - 52.0 gr AR2209, vel est 2800 fps to get 3/4" group @ 100 yds also good for goats out to 300 yds
I generally like to keep the charge lower when out in the field as I have had instances of high pressure shooting on 40 C degree days with ammo left in the sun, I also like to take note on how many times I reload the brass and toss after 5 reloads.

Re: Light 270 rounds

Dang, finally found the target 1/2 ream of paper deep in my targets. Last March I tried the 110 sierra and found 60 rl22 to be very accurate in my rifle with a rem 9 1/2 primer under it. .6" 3 shot group out of my marlin xl7 270. I haven't shot it in my tikka yet, as I've been playing with a couple of other bullets I got a deal on that were fussy. 54 grains h4350 was also good at .75" at 100 with the 110 sierra and the rem 9 1/2 primer.
