    For what range?
    For what intended use? What critters?
    Beanfied whitetails, or cross canyon Elk make a big difference on recommendations for bullets. Speed vs expansion vs range vs energy required for (?) critters all play into recommending a bullet & loads for them.

    I do like to see, & I respect folks more interested in accuracy than speed. Good to see.

    Thinking of wolf & coyote. I use a 300 custom for the LRH. I came across this rifle by chance & being a model70 fan i had to buy it. The 20" barrel is not what i would buy in a new rifle. But i could not turn down a great deal. Thank's for any load advice.

    I'm a model-70 freak as well.
    Oddly enough my custom 300 was built on my old 20" barreled Win 70 xtr 30-06 action, haha.
    Now it wears a 26" Hart & is a long action 300 WSM.
    My 270 is a model-70 feather wt 270WSM.
    I'm launching 140 Accubonds at roughly 3100fps.

    I'm guessing with H4350 or RL-19, you could see 2950-3000 with a 140. Maybe 2900 with the short pipe.
    But RL-19 & 130's should be a good combo in the 3000-3075 range.
    If you had a longer pipe & could take advantage if slower powders id say bump it up to a 150 strictly for B.C. gain to aid in bucking wind. But I love my 140 Ab's. They have a .496 g1 B.C.

    Google Nosler.com, or shootersproshop.com for load info, & run it thru JBM Ballistics Calculator to see what will fit your needs.

    I'm sure somebody will chime in soon. If not, send a p.m. to royinidaho, & he'll square you away. He manages to squeeze every last fps out of a 270 win without blowing himself up.

    Wolf & coyote == possibly moving target, not as much time to dope and dial as say an elk
    ...and, considering you have a 300 custom for LRH.

    I might suggest leaning towards the lighter bullets for 270.

    I believe you can go down to 100gr.

    I had a slow twist 270 that shot the heck out of the Berger 130's.

    The Matrix 165g is one of the highest BC .277's. I've had good luck with them in a 1:10" twist.

    I shoot the 110 TTSX from my 270 WSM for coyotes and they do a number on them, from a straight 270 Win with a short barrel I would go with the 110 v-max and blow the life of themgun)

    110 sierra's and 4350 or rl17. If that doesn't work, any of the 130's on I 4831 or rl17. I've got 2 22" 270's and they like 4831, rl22, rl17, and 7828. So basically if you have some 110's or 130's and one of those powders(or one of similart burn), go for it.
