    Picked up some 130gr Berger Classic Hunters to try out with my .270.

    I know this isn't a traditional long range gun, but I'm hoping someone out there has used these and can give me some input with data.

    I usually burn rl22 with 130's in my 270's, but rl17 and 4831 (either i or h)will make 'em fly well too.

    I'm new at reloading, and have picked up the exact same bullet for my .270. I have just finished bedding my rifle and have loaded my test rounds. I loaded IMR 4350 min to max (51 to 55 gr.) in half grain increments. I'm just waiting for some range time to see what my final load will be. I hope to group well out to 600 yards.

    The ole standby 60.0 grains of H4831 is always worth a try. For me it's max so start lower and work up .5 grains at a time.

    54.5 grains IMR 4350 seated on the lands. With the 130 gr classic hunters. Got a similar group at 54.0 gr. I hope to tighten them up with 0.1 gr. steps and seating depth changes. Have you been able to try yours yet Tbuckus?

    Sully. I was on the phone to Sierra to ask about an inconsistent lot of .277 gamekings. He asked me what my load was, when I told him you would've thought he anally gave birth to an albatross.

    Whitetails sure don't last long when poked with that.
