Re: 270 Win For Long Range Shooting

downright dave,

landcbeitner got it right as well as most of the guys on the forum. overbore cartridges that perform marginally at long range 1000-2000 yards can be given new life with much heavier slugs. this provides longer barrel life and much higher BC. the smaller slugs go like H... for 600 + yards then fall like a rock. by 800-1200 yards the higher BC bullets take over. they also buck wind better, the archnemesis of LRH and shooters. this is why we are so interested in the "new" developements of the larger slugs in 270. glad to have you in the game. good luck and God bless.

Re: 270 Win For Long Range Shooting

oh, by the way, if winchester had read po ackley they wouldnt have made the 270 WSM. it is way overbore, gets marginally better speed and burns barrels like he said it would. however, with the new 175 matrix and around 3000 FPS. that is worth looking into. might be that winchester could save the cartridge if they put such a slug in their lineup, otherwise if fear it will go the way of the 264 win.

Re: 270 Win For Long Range Shooting

Hi Pistol Packer et al,

I will locate and read Po Ackley.

I like a man who is willing to think and then go outside the box when it is a resultant necessity created by that thinking.

To all of you, I want to state, "My overriding interest is gun design, the Long Range Capabilities are a new and fascinating possibility, now that I know of their
existence.

Keep the tutorials coming,

Thank You,
"Downright Dave

Re: 270 Win For Long Range Shooting

hmmmm interesting....

anyway...

back on topic

Got started on a load, 56.5 grains of 4831sc, BR-2 Primers yeilding ~2850 fps.

got a 5/8" group @ 100 yards

I need to back off to 200 yards, vary the charge weight +- 0.2 grains and see what happens.

so far it's looking good!!!

Perhaps he meant 270 MKV?
