Re: 270 Win For Long Range Shooting

Congrats, how was the bullets terminal performance?[/QUOTE]


I was leading the buck as he was walking at 372 yards so the shot hit him in the neck. I led him too far to put it on the shoulder- my sight picture was not exactly what I wanted when I shot- but God was gracious to me.

It did it's job, the exit hole was an inch, but the bullet didn't meet a lot of resistence. So I can't really tell you about ultimate penetration and expansion.

There are quite a few pictures of the terminal performance of this bullet on Cutting Edges' website at a variety of distances and animals.

This bullet has unbelievable accuracy in my gun. The gun has always been a good hunting shooter- 3/4 inch groups. I usually shot Nosler Ballistic Tip 140s. With this bullet, I am cutting the same hole. The BC is higher and the velocity faster. I think it turns the 270 AI into a viable 1,000 yard deer gun. At the elevations I am hunting this bullet has over 1,100 FT lbs. at 1000 yards.

That does sound like an awesome set up! The new ABLR's should be pretty decent as well in my 270WSM... Can't wait to try them as well.

Sandra22, Looks like you're new here, and this post might be better in the varmint section unless you're using a 270 to shoot possums, wombats, platypus and bandicoots. Having not shot those I can't say whats best, but when I was a kid we shot a lot of bats. A 20 gauge, beside a pond in a hollow skylines them in the summer. Percentages are low but the shooting is pretty constant.

Re: 270 Win For Long Range Shooting

I understand that a faster twist is necesary to stabilize the longer, heavier bullets but what affect does that have on the smaller bullets?
One of the reasons I really like the .270 is being able to load for anything from prairie dogs to elk, but would I lose that if I rebarrel with a faster twist?

Re: 270 Win For Long Range Shooting

I think you would be fine with the lighter bullets. Hardly ever hurts to have too much twist. The opposite is pretty frustrating!
