Question on bullwt weight

I could use some.advise on what grain bullet for a .270win. I should use for sboots out to 800 to 1000 yards at coyotes. I was thinking Sierra 130gr. GK sbt I haven't cut the.barrel down yet but itt will be between 16.5" and 18" long. Any help would be great!
Thank you in advance
Rupe

Re: Question on bullwt weight

Anyone anyone at all? I still haven't cut down the take off rifle barrel yet. I have had one suggestion of cutting it to 18" anyone disagree with this? In my mind it seems so long for a handgun. But I do want to reach out there with it.
Also on bullet suggestions, still could uss some input on them other then my own thoughts.
I have been a handgun for many many years but have.just got into the Specialty pistol and my Striker. Just looking for a little help on this.
Thank you for your time,
Rupe

Re: Question on bullwt weight

For kills at that distance, leave the barrel at 18" as you will need all the impact velocity you can get.
NBT's and the Nosler LR AB ( I don't know what weight they come in for .277, but they open up at real low impact velocities.

Re: Question on bullwt weight

The powders you've listed seem a bit too 'fast' for the 270 Win for maximum velocity.

I'd personally look at H4831sc and similar burn rate powders.

I use H-4350 for my 6.5-284's and H-4350 and H-4831sc for my 284 Win's.

Re: Question on bullwt weight

Thank you Ernie and buttermilk for the info. I'm afraid the powders you have mentioned are not on the shelves in my area yet. I was very lucky to get the 4064 and the 8208 the otber day. That was his last 2 lbs of those. But I will keep my eyez out for them. Thank ypu for the bullet info. too!
I really appreciate it!
