Don't worry about that in the 270. The only time to consider a faster twist is if you reload bigger bullets like the 165 matrix

So is it that the faster twist will shoot longer/ heavier bullets better or worse than a slower twist?

I think this will come in to play when I start in on my .223. Don't know what the twist of it is yet...

    The faster the twist the heavier you can go. The faster twist is what stabilizes the bullet.

    The other week I have build a load for a Remington 700 gun. The shooter is all new to riffles so my object this time was to help him develop skills and not to break bullet speed records. Accuracy and gun handling was of my concern. I made 21 possible bullet and powder combinations using the 130 grain soft Remington partition Bullet as a starting point, and after few hours, I had a winner. The first set was the most accurate and just a pleasure to work with. The final load was a 43gr of imr4895 with a 130 gr Hornady interlock bullet. This was a light load for the gun. Velocity was about 2600 ft/s. On the other side, I was impressed with the performance of Varget powder loads, most of them went over 3000ft/s. This is a plesant cartrige to work with. Check the barrel twist rate, its lenght, those things will limit your maximum bullet weight. If I remember the factory original load was 130 gr. Start there and then go up.
