Re: Reloading help for .270 Win

H4831 is the go to powder for the .270 Win. CCI 200 will light that powder fine without going to a magnum powder. The Nosler BT is a good bullet.

I suggest that you try the 59.5 grain load a 300 yards and see how it shoots. Some bullets shoot much better at a distance then they would indicate off a bench at 100 yards. The opposite can be true also, that bug hole group at 100 opens up dramatically at extended range.

If you are really not happy, you could try Burger bullets, but I have not done so myself.

I had real good luck with H4350 in my 270 when shooting 130 BT's

My rifle likes h4831sc @ 58.0 with the 130BT. 1/2 MOA all day long.

Re: Reloading help for .270 Win

Our 270's all are running 7828 lite with BR2's, velocities were only 30fps more than the same charges of H4831sc but the velocity spreads were much better with the 7828.
As to the 130 being enough bullet all I know it 500 yards is pushing a 130 on elk, I would try a 150 Ballistic tip which normally I don't like but in the 270win it will be slow enough that it will be about ideal. We load the 165 Matrix in all our 270's now and it flat smacks elk size game in the 500 yard range!!

Re: Reloading help for .270 Win

I use the Hornady SST's. Just as much bullet for about half the cost.

130 gr SST

53.2 gr IMR 4831 COL 3.19 Win WLR Primer

or

57.7 gr H4831SC COL 3.235 Win WLR Primer

or

140 gr SST

59.5 gr H1000 COL 3.34 WLR Primer (my favorite)

All win brass and Lee equipment with a good factory crimp.

Good luck..........

Re: Reloading help for .270 Win

With the 150's in the .270, 52.5 grains of IMR 4350 in Winchester brass is a pretty awesome load... 2750 from a 22" barrel, shoots great in a variety of rifles we've tried it in, and hits past 600 yards are harder than with 130's even at 2900+ fps.

The 130's are good shorter range bullets for the .270, but I believe the 150's handily outperform them past 500 yards or so, with more energy and higher sectional density... I say go with 150's.

Please explain "velocity spreads"..........What is the barrel twist on the 165/175 grain Matrix VLD's?

Thanks
