the core lokts have been excellent for me as well, but much over 400 is there range of accuracy. i have great results with the 130g ballistic tips at all rangers.

good luck

+1 for Nosler BT. I use their 140gr yellow tips and let me tell ya, they'll put DRT pretty much every time if I do my part. Ive only had one run more than 20 yards and thats because he was within bow range and there wasn't enough time for the Nosler to do its part. Let me say that 15 of those yards were in a circle strait down the whole time. I love them for my 270. Now in my part of Arkansas we don't have too many way out there shots so my farthest on a deer is 327. However I doubt you would have any other kind of results from the Nosler line at 400 yards. Just for full disclosure.

The only deer I've shot at that distance was with a Ballistic Silvertip, and it was Very effective, and accurate. One shot double lung, he just stood there. Next shot was high shoulder, and it dropped in its tracks. Only reason i shot again was that i thought i had missed.

So if the OP like the Remingtons why not just change to the pointed soft point spitzer they offer for longer range shooting. It's the exact same ammo other than one has a round nose and the other is a spitzer!

If the Rem Core-Loks are the same as when I first started buying them the pointed soft points are 130gr and idk if hed want to drop that low from his original 150. 140 is not quite as much of a step down. 130 core locks are great, but only one of my 270s really liked them. 140s just seem to work best for mine but OPs mileage may vary.

Re: Looking for a good 400yd 270 whitetail deer bullet

I'm in California and we have to hunt lead-free. Regardless, I've had great success with Barnes 130gr TTSX over 58.0gr of RL-19, COA of 3.225". This load shoots as good as my Nosler handloads. They meter at 2846 fps from my Win model 670. Both of my deer this year were shot from over 400yds and went right to sleep. I zero at 200yds and they hold 1/2 moa. My drop at 400yds is 19.6".

Good luck.

150 grain in Berger, BT, or Sierra SBT will flatten them and give good blood trails if they don't fall were they are standing
