Re: 270 wsm for bear

I would imagine that the shank is what exited like you said, and the front of the bullet blew up early. From what I've shot the Accubond will act very similar as it will open fast but the front doesn't blow because it is bonded it just peals back fast then goes into normal mushroom mode from there. TTSX opens fast also from what little I've shot with them in my 270 WSM and then augers thorough them, I much more prefer how the TTSX performs over the TSX. The Bergers go in and slow blow into the core of the animal and the jacket exits, at least under 400yrds on heavy game and on small deer it goes in and blows a hole out the of side you can reach though.

The Accubond seems to be a go to bullet for the 270 WSM, it's rugged enough to handle the higher velocities yet opens good and accuracy is phenomenal!

Good shooting, and still no pics

Re: 270 wsm for bear

I would agree, in the 270 the berger BC isn't that much higher than the accubond. I called Nosler after reading that the 140gr accubond had a BC of .496 while the ballistic tip had a BC of .456, thinking it was a typo. They said that they added more copper to the jacket to make the bullet longer and increase the BC. My interest in the 270WSM was actually sparked by the high BC accubond, I'd always been a 6.5 or 7mm fan before due to the bullets available. I think the 270WSM will survive, where the 7WSM may not.

Re: 270 wsm for bear

most field pics didnt turn out but i have a few. how do i post them?

i agree with the 270 wsm surviving and i think the 7mm is slowly fading. the only factory rifle chambered in it would be brownings and maybe winchester. savage and kimber used to, but i think they stopped. But i think the 7mm wsm makes the most sense of all the wsm s, i think its the perfect big game caliber but thats just my opinion.

One thing i dont like about the 7mm wsm is the fact that winchester moved the shouldner up a tad on it. i used to have a savage 7mm wsm and getting brass was a problem. i ended up necking up 270 wsm brass and fireformed but if using a max load it seemed the primer pockets loosened quite a bit on the fireforming shot, even with the bullet seated out to touch the lands.

i just wish they had left the shoulder alone then it would be real simple to get brass, just neck it up.
