Re: 270 Win For Long Range Shooting

Well thru a super secret hand shake, bribing, cajolling and other efforts i did find som 270 long rang accobonds in the nick of time for my Colorado hunt.

I took a nice muley and a 5x6 elk.

I posted a picture of the elk and he recovered bullet on theFiring Line Radio Show facebook page.

Very nice. Terminal results? Recovered bullet?

Congrats on two awesome animals.

Re: 270 Win For Long Range Shooting

Thanks for the article, love the fact that variety of billets are coming out for the .270win. I am in the process of acquiring a .270win in a Wetherby vanguard series 2 for deer hunting in Manitoba and hope to put a custom barrel on it one day for long range hunting.

Here's the mini-muscle brake,... it kicks like a kitten,... like my 260 without the brake.


Bad pic, but I think you can see I left the jeweled bolt,... classy!
That's a slick lookin stick you got there, what kind of muzzle break is that? It looks like a clamp on, if so can a person get somthing like that for a sporter contour barrel? Or just heavier contours?

Hi, I am new to the sight but have been long range shooting with my 270 Win. for 4 years and counting. I started out reloading with a 150 gr. Nosler ballistic tip. I was shooting out to 600 yards and my best grouping was three shots at 3 1/4". I found that there was a lot of bullet drop due to low velocities, around 2700 feet per second. I then tried loading a 130 gr. Nosler ballistic tip with more powder to increase velocity and decrease bullet drop. The groupings got larger. I am now experimenting with Hornady 110 and 130 gr. bullets. But needless to say the 270 is a long range rifle with the right loads as I saw with my first loads.

That's a "mini-muscle brake" It's threaded on the barrel. The "clamping" bolt is just to index the brake (makes install and removal easier).
