New 270 WSM

I have a new 270 WSM, in a rem 700. In my other rifles, I favor berger bullets. Berger does not make a bullet for my new gun. Can anyone give advice and some pet recipes for the 270 WSM for long range stuff. Application is for deer and elk.
Thanks. Tim G

    Tim, not so fast! Berger will be announcing their .277 bullets as early as this month. My understanding is they will offer 130, 140, and 150 VLDs. I sent them an email last month about it, now that they are advertising hunting bullets. I wrote to them asking because if they are going to supply hunting bullets, they might as well offer bullets for the most popular calibers, including .277. Obviously, they had already began.

    Keep checking their website.

    Are you using Winchester or Norma brass? If you haven't bought anything yet, I would highly recommend Norma. It is easier to tune and shoots better in this caliber from what I have seen lately.

    I used the 140 grain Accubond and Imr4350 in the last gun and it would shoot 3/8" groups at 100 yards and had very uniform velocities.

    Winchester seems to be less forgiving.

    Goodgrouper, I haven't loaded for this new gun yet. I've been using Win. brass for my other stuff. I have never tried Norma brass, but I will. Thanks

    The powders that have worked great for GG and I in the past with the 140 NAB are Imr 4350--RL 19 and RL 22. Start with the 4350 like GG suggested. It has given good velocity and great S.D.s without crushing powder kernals like you do with RL22 and slower powders. The H and IMR 4831s are in the right quickness or burn rate with the 140s also---RHB
