Couldnt help resericting this thread, always cracks me up how downloaded most loads you ever see
Posted on these internet sites, of course for the older actions you need to be careful.....
However for those of us with modern rifles some of these so called max loads are pitifully enemic
In the performance dept.
To tap into the full potential of the caliber we have moved past the old stand by for the 6.5 , 4350
Powder and tryed some Alliant RL26 that is a wonder powder for us in the .270W.
Starting out at 47 gr we soon moved up through 49gr on the way to 50.5gr under a Berger 140 VLD.
The avg velocity from the Tikka T3 is 2850fps, and has no sign of high presure in this rifle.
I think QL shows this is around 60k on preasure. 50.5 in a PPU case is just up from shoulder into the neck. So its a slightly compressed load.(at 3.145 col that is .015 off the lands in this
I dont see how the Creedmore folks can keep up with this over hundred year old caliber??, And
even the .260 fellas, are going to struggle to stay in the rear view mirror ?? If they are running the same barrel lenght.
Try some RL26 in your Sweede (if its a post WW2 action) and I think you will be pleasently surprised
How close it will run at a .270s heels! Shooting bullets with BC's a 270 could only dream of.
