Re: Load for 270 Weatherby Magnum

I was using 75grns of H1000 under 150s but mine was on a savage action. The german mark v won't handle the 165 Matrix because the twist is to slow, it takes a 1:10 or faster twist, if memory serves correct the german mark v is only a 1:12 and you should probably shoot 140 accubonds over H4831sc starting with about 68.5grns.

Re: Load for 270 Weatherby Magnum

Again thank you for your wisdom on such matters...yes , my gun is 1:12 twist....so far the barnes 150's are hitting the target with 68g of R-22...now if I could get a good group....Is the 140 Acc-bound a sufficient elk round?

The 140 accubond is just as good as the Barnes IMO, the 12 twist may be causing not so good groups with the 150 Barnes.

I shoot 165 Matrix vld. It is a Rock 8.5 twist bbl. 71.5- 4831sc
3192 fps , at 1000 yds it is still 1900fps.
That bullet is the best thing to happen to the 270 wby. It adds 400 to 600 yds to the long range shooter.

Re: Load for 270 Weatherby Magnum

My load for the 140 accubonds is 74.5grns RL22 or 73.5grn H4831sc with a CCI250 primer in Norma brass, both work good, the 4831 load is less sensative than the RL22 but sometimes 4831 is hard to find so I use RL22.

Re: Load for 270 Weatherby Magnum

Thanks BW83.....I will try it....just got back shooting 68grns of RL22 with the Barnes 150....2 were in the same hole....but my barrel was hot! Should this be a concern....the brass showed no signs of pressure..and I am 1 Grn under Barnes max for the charge?
