Re: 270 Win For Long Range Shooting

How about the 5R rifling? I see it was mentioned in this article (and a few others) but I don't know anyone else who have real world experience with it. I guess Remington even makes a factory 5R 700, but there again I don't know anyone who owns one.

Re: 270 Win For Long Range Shooting

Ron (of Benchmark) ordered the button for the faster twist .277" with "5R style" rifling. He believes it may be easier on the bullet jackets. I have had many different barrels with many different styles of rifling (land/groove configurations etc.). In general you won't notice much difference as a shooter.... I recently tested an experimental two-groove barrel for a 308 win... shoots as good as any 5r I've owned.

I never figuered out how to post a picture on this sight, but I have the next best thing. The buck I shot this year is on the Cutting Edge Bullets website!

The first with that rifle as a 270 Ackley Improved.

Once you go Ack- You'll never go back!

Congrats on a very fine harvest! I too am enjoying my .270 AI.

Feenix, have you tried the 165 matrix bullets? I'm getting 2950 and decent accuracy. I'm still working up a load with h4831

Yes, but while fire-forming to .270AI only. I was not looking for any accuracy but here's what I have to share thus far on the 165gr Matrix VLD ...

CCI BR2
Win Brass
58.5 gr H4831SC
X=2981 FPS (30", 1:8, 3-GR Lilja)
SD=17 FPS


3-shot group @ 100 yards

NOTE: H4831SC is ~100 FPS more than H1000 with the same amount of powder.

Good luck!

Ed

Always had the best loads for my 270 with both H4831 and H4831sc.
