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.

    Anyone? Even if you can just say: "yeah those are safe".

    Kinda on a short timeline and don't want to blow up a gun or block a barrel.

    The Alliant Powder site is showing a load of 56.5 with R22 and Speer bullet, that 's about all I know with that powder. I load 7828 and H4831.

    Yeah, I know. That is why I am asking. I have all the load tables. Nothing for the 140 gr TSX though. My basic physics calc comes out perfectly fine as far a pressure. I am only going to load 3 of them and see how they group I think.

    I usually knock of a grain or two for the TSX just to make sure I don't get a surprise.

    Yeah I generally treat them as 10 grains heavier than their true weight. So for a 140 gr I treat it as a 150 gr bullet
