Suggestions on 270 WIN loads

HI, I'm in the process of prepping my cases = (Winchester) but I'm looking for suggestion on what to use based off of what I already have. The purpose is for deer hunting 100-350yd shots as accurate as possible [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img].
Powder = H1000, H380, and Varget
Primer = WLR
Bullet = 130gr Hornady SST, and 130gr Sierra GameKing

Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

With reguards to your components, I have only used the bullets , cases, and primers for my .270 Win. I have used H-4831, Imr-4831, Imr-4350, IMR-3031 and H-4350, as well as a few loads using RL-19 and 22. However, by an far the most accurate load I have ever developed for my rifle was using 46.5 grs of IMR - 3031 and the Nosler 130gr bullet. As for which bullet, it really didn't matter they all shot lights out with this load generally grouping 5 shots well into 1" at 200yds. This load just hits 2800fps from my rifle and was developed for my mom to use, so recoil is nil. IT has taken deer and hogs out to 380yds, all with bang/flop results. I have worked up a couple of other loads as mentioned for specific uses, but for hunting in general this load is always a first consideration.

I just started some playing around with the 130gr Hornady this past year as I got a pile of them for a decent price. Figured they would be decent for some longer range loads for hogs. However, I never got anything that I was really happy with. Not that the bullets were the problem, just didn't have much time to mess with it. Overall, it has been found that the 4350 range of powders show a generaly better overall accuracy and are more widley used for this particuler round. This is not to say that a whole host of others cannot deliver top notch velocity and accuracy, only that that particular burn rate seems to favor this bullet and case combo.

Hope this helps,

Re: Suggestions on 270 WIN loads

Thanks, I have heard and read where a lot of shooters with a 270 win uses IMR 4064 and H4350. I figured I would ask here hoping that someone would have tried these powders also. I only mentioned these powders because they are what I have now on hand

Thanks,

Re: Suggestions on 270 WIN loads



I would use the H1000, WLR primer
Bullet = 130gr Hornady SST, and 130gr Sierra GameKing and which ever bullet that you prefer

I shoot Win. case's and 63 grains of H-1000 and Federal 210 primers with 140 grains bullets in my 270 Win and love the shot to shot consistance of H-1000 with the 130 grain bullets I am sure that you can use a grain or 2 more, but start 10% below and work up carefully

Re: Suggestions on 270 WIN loads

Anyone chrono any of those loads. H-1000 didn't produce enough velocity in mine to be able to call it a 270 Win i.e., 3100 FPS MV. I couldn't get to 3000....

I'd give serious consideration to a 130/135/140 gr bullet and 56gr RL-22 as a starting load and working up. I had to stop at 58.5 gr.

ALso use Non Magnum primers. My luck has been with CCI-200s

Re: Suggestions on 270 WIN loads

I use 150 gr. speer bullets for deer. 57.5 grs. of H-4831 or 57 grs, of rl-22. 2800 f.p.s.or so with 4831, 2860 f.p.s. with rl-22. H-1000 seems kind of slow for 130's.

Re: Suggestions on 270 WIN loads


Roy, I get 3140 fps out of my 270 win with the H-1000 and 140 grain bullets.
Before you call bs, just remember that it has a Krieger 29" barrel
I am very happy with the shot to shot consistence of the H-1000 in both the 300 Win Mag and 270 Win and I am also pleased with the velocity in the 270
