Very good point! Safety, safety, safety ... there is no substitute.

H4831sc or H1000 with CCI 250 primers. 4831 with 140s H1000 with 150s, although H1000 with 150s will likely be compressed for best results. If you have a 10 twist and don't mind having a loaded round over 3.5"s long the 165 Matrix vld over Retumbo with a 215M may be worth a try, should be able to get 3150 with Retumbo/165 combo.

Re: Load for 270 Weatherby Magnum

A compressed load makes no difference, if its a safe pressure its a safe pressure compressed or not. Just never use a powder that you have to compress so hard that it could cause the bullet to come unseated. Also a majority of the time compressed or densely charged loads have a tigher ES and SD because of the lack of air space in the case and not letting the powder shift.
