Loads for .270 WSM

I'd like some suggested loads for a .270 WSM with sheep and antelope in mind. Thanks in advance.

I like Retumbo and the 140grn AB. I don't have any data in front of me, and I wouldn't want to guess. Shoots .5" or less @ 100 with my factory pencil neck stick.

Re: Loads for .270 WSM

try Sierra 150 gr SBT in front of 66 gr of 7828 with CCI 250.

of course work up to it and see how it does on the pressure. Around here we use 100 - 115 gr .277 for varmints and 150's for hunting in standard twist rifles.
.270 Ackley improved 29 inch 1.250 dia. target barrel 7mm STW 28 inch 1.250 target barrel. I also love my .458 mag for varmints and the biggest game in the world.
