Need pet loads for 270 winchester and 150 grain berger bullets.
Seems most like the 140's better?????
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.
51.0 gr IMR4350, Fed 215 match primer, Win brass
51.5 imr4350,cci200,once fired win.brass put me at 3/4" at 100 with my older 700,thats with no playing around with seating depth. By the hornady #7 3.210
What is everybodies oal? I load the 140's at 3.38.
100 and 200 yard targets with my load mentioned above:
i am using 57.2gr rl22, hornady brass, cci 250mag primers, 150grvld's, oal of 3.385", out of a win model70. 3 shots .5" all day if i do my part. start low and work up, almost max in my rifle.
150 gn VLD's 56.0 gn H4831, CCI Magnum Primers, Winchester Brass. Groups @ 100m .55" - .71" for a 3 shot group.
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.
