Re: R-17 for my 270 WSM

I just bought a laminated stock for my Winchester Model 70 Featherweight. I did not want to damage the Featherweight stock so I go a laminated Winchester stock and had it glass bedded and the barrel free floated.

As a result of this I have started working up some new loads. I am using Norma, and Remington brass. With most of my loads I have used WLRM primers. My gun has a long throat so my COL is very long,( 3.25). This will not fit the mag. in most guns and it would be in the lands of most 270WSM'S. 2.80-2.90 is the most common COL for the WSM'S.

I am now trying H1000 with my 140 Accubonds. They have not shot quite as great as my IMR-4350 load but it is good enough for a hunting load and I will be checking the velocity shortly and I think I should add 50-100 ft/sec to my velocity.

I got the best accuracy with H1000 for the 150SST and W780 for 140 and 130SST.

Good luck
