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.

    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).
