Re: .270 Win 110 grain loads?

I've played with every imaginable 270 win load out there 90-150 gr. The 90-110 gr pills make for some fun novelty loads (IMO) and would make for very dead coyotes. I had settled on 130 NBT for everything up to whitetails. When I decided to go for caribou several years ago I loaded some 140 NAB, they are now my go to load for everything. I've had such good results with H4831 and H4831SC that I've never tried much else. I do remember using other powders for the lighter bullets though. I used to have an AWSOME reduced load for the 90gr hollow point, but that's another topic.

I now enjoy having one load that will do everything very well. The 140 NAB has made a real believer out of me!

What you wanting from the bullet? Are you concerned about pelts? i have a savage model 111 in 270 win and have shot 110 v-maxs at coyotes along with 130sst's. The 110 will destroy and shoulder with minimun penatration and the 130 sst will simply leave a large exit hole if not connecting with heavy bone, but put them in the dirt quick!
Just my observation?

I shoot 110gr GS Custom HV's out of my .270 Winchester Blaser R93.
GS Custom are a boutique projectile made in South Africa and basically a monometal hollow point copper bullet. They are individually turned on a state of the art CNC lathe and one very important feature is that they are a bore rider, the important benefit of this being lower pressures to drive down the bore, plus better gas sealing of the bore. You can usually get an extra 200fps easily over a conventional projectile of the same weight. Click on this link:


This is the best group shot to date at 100 yards, and my rifle is a consistent 1/2 moa or better. I am using Winchester 760. 63grs gives me 3455fps from a 22 inch barrel.

This is a very flat shooting load. At 100yards it is 2.93 inches high, zero's at 312yards and 8 inches low at 400 yards.

I have shot pigs, goats and deer with these bullets and they give the same consistent result - the animal drops in its tracks.

The B.C of these 110gr GS Custom HV's is .377, the same as the Barnes tipped TSX 110gr.

I see by the dates this is a little old but I was looking for data to load a 270 with 110gr BTHPs. I wanted to use my IRM4895 but cannot find a load or data. I would appreciate anything someone might have.

Nice groups out of that 270 longtrac! I've got the safari mark2 in 270. It shoots pretty good. For some reason it really likes the cheap factory 130 grain Win power points. I'd love to load for it. 110 grain sounds pretty fun. For semi autos they shoot great! They really shine in the woods more than on the paper. I've yet to have any complaints from the local whitetails.

Re: .270 Win 110 grain loads?

I generally shoot a 223 for coyotes, But tried a 270 with 150 gr. Core-loks on paper this week. It had too much recoil for me . Would the 110 or 90 Grainers be better ? I was shooting a savage 110 sporter.the barrel would burn my hand after 4 shoots . Does anyone have any suggestions ?
