Playing with some 270 loads for my brother
My brother is a 270 Win nut, but hasn't really shot anything but factory ammo with factory guns. I had built for him a custom rem 270 and now want to do some load development for him. He loves the barnes tsx 140 grainers, and because he really doesn't shoot past 350 to 400 yards and doesn't hunt anything bigger than elk, I think that is a great projectile.
I want to experiment with some re-22 loads with the bullet, but don't see any reference loads anywhere. Thinking of starting around 54 grains, seems that won't be too hot at all. What do you all think? Also running 210 gm primers from federal.
I have never reloaded for 270, I am a 280ai guy myself so any help is appreciated.
