Re: What is the best hunting load for 270 Win.

I load for a good buddy who has the same rifle, a Remington Model 700 Mountain rifle in 270. His load uses the 130 gr. Partition and H4831SC. IMR4350 would also be a great powder to try with this weight of bullet or a 140 gr. Partition.

I feel the 270 is just a natural with either a 130 or 140 gr. bullet and you would have to try pretty hard to find something better than a Nosler Partition or Accubond in those weights.

Good luck on your quest.
David

Re: What is the best hunting load for 270 Win.

would the 270 be a bad choice for elk? and what kind of range can you shoot where the bullet will still have enough power to take big game down?

any knowledge that you could share would help thank you.

Re: What is the best hunting load for 270 Win.

I really like the hornady 130gr. SST.does a great job on deer to 300yds. Took an elk last year with them also @ 85yds. We have smaller deer in the So. but I've took a good number of white tail with the AR-15 also, I use hornady 60gr.223 mostly take head & neck shots inside 150yds.They would'nt be my first choice on big bucks but they work good on doe days.

H4350 launches 130 gr TSX at 2930 fps in my Mauser sporter. Prints .5" 5- shot groups too.

The 270 works just fine for elk and my friend has killed several bulls with his at distances up to 400 yards I believe.
