    I have tried the 140's they shoot well. I just wanted to try the 150's to see if they are any better.

    I don't have my data handy but I've used H4831sc and H4350 to get them going around 2850fps. I've shot them in a rem factory barrel and an aftermarket barrel, and have had success both ways.

    270Win tests the day before hunting 2010
    a) 55 Re17 150VLD 3.38"
    ..1) M70 22" barrel, 7X scope, 3023, 2996, 2969, 3003, 3009, 3003, 3009, 3037,
    ..2) Ruger #1, 26" barrel, 25X Mk IV scope, 3037, 3058, 3044, 3072 fps,

    In 2011 I will use neither Re17 nor VLD hunting bullets.

    Instead I am going back to Nosler Ballistic Tip bullets. It is a trade off between better exterior ballistics in the VLD and better terminal ballistics in the BT.

    Instead I am going to temp stable powders; Varget, H4895, H4350, and H4831sc.
    It is a trade off between better maximum velocity with Re17, and more consistent velocity with the Hodgdon extreme powders.
