I'm currently in parts acquisition for a .270 AI build and will be taking advantage of the 175gr.
Did you finish the AI build? I have one and i wonder what your loads look like with the 165s

Negative! Expecting to get it from my smith any day now ... will be fireforming brass first before refining AI loads. Will keep you guys posted on any progress.

Thanks!

Sorry, for the slow response, glad you enjoyed the article. I use the 300 win magazines and bend the lips in so they feed the 270 and other 30-06 cases reliably. It's not difficult at all, just test often as you're modifying.

Re: 270 Win For Long Range Shooting

I recently purchased a 300 win mag barrel for a tc encore. its 28 inches and has a twist rate of 1:10. can i shoot heavy 200gr+ bullets accurately or do i need a barrel with 1:8 or so?

Re: 270 Win For Long Range Shooting

You will be fine with your 1-10 and 200grain bullets. 28" of barrel should get it done easily.

Re: 270 Win For Long Range Shooting

WOW, loved the article!!!

I picked up my 270 when stationed in Bremerton. it was at Wally World...seems they had a Weatherby MKV on the shelf...nine lug mag action to boot...all chambered in 270 WIN.

bought it on the spot. That was 1995.

It is a very good shooter...runs 130 gr nosler BTs well, shoots under 1 inch @ 100...but as it's a sporter, the group grows after about 9 shots.

Cold Bore shots are right on at 200.

But I have always wondered how well it would work at 500-650 yards...finally found a place to run that far. low and behold, it can punch paper at that distance...but with the 130s, not much snort left.

I read this article, and I was hooked...a 270 Win with 165 gr VLD...and good terminal performance past 500 yards??? WOO HOO!!!

Also wanted to condence the ammunition supply...I have a 6.8 SPC also..cant shoot the longer bullets (wont fit in the mag) but, a 115 GR would make a decent varmit bullet for a 270WIN....Been running a OA243WSSM to 500 on paper for a bit..so going to sell that rig to fund the 270 build.

Hmmm a plan was forming...use the 6.8SPC for everything under 200 yards...and use the 270 Win for everything from 150 yards to....??? (going to slap a Nightforce 3.5-14x50 F1 on it)

Ran the ballistics of a 165 Gr, 0.65 BC Bullet @ 2850 FPS...and I was very suprised at what came out...could easily punch paper at 1300...

The project was set...

Sent her off to Benchmark...(it's up there right now) for a refit with a 27" 1-9 twist varmit contour barrel with brake.


Hope to get it back in time for Deer season...

cant wait!!!
