    Hello all:),
    I'm new to this forum and I have some information to share about my recent experience with this cartridge & powder combination. I used a F1 Shooting Chrony to verify the feet per second (Set a ways away from the muzzle @ 30 feet). I sighted in my scope while I was chronographing the cartridge loads.
    The Savage Edge(Now the Axis model) in .270 Winchester/ 22" barrel/UTG Bipod/Mueller 3-10x44IGR 1/8"MOA riflescope were my tools of choice.
    Powder=Hodgdon Hybrid 100V @ 55.0 Grains *56 grains is Hodgdons MAX load*
    Brass =Winchester .270 - Primers(2) =CCI BR-2 (Benchrest) & WLR (Winchester) -
    Bullet =Sierra .277 130gr. SBT #1820/BC .436 @ 2800 fps and above
    COL/Case Overall Length =3.290 inches
    >8 shots fired for effect per each primer brand & Cases fire formed & neck sized only<
    8 shots: CCI BR-2 = 2980 FPS/.650 Grouping <--(Last 3 shots)
    8 shots: WLR = 3050 FPS/.600 Grouping <--(Last 3 shots)

    Post is a bit old but I tried out Hodgdon Hybrid 100 in a Savage 110 in 270.

    Savage 110
    24" Stainless Savage Magnum Contour Barrel
    Walnut Stock
    Leupold VX-2 3-12x50 Scope
    54gr H100V
    New Remington Brass
    Federal 210M Primer
    130gr Nosler Ballistic Tip OAL=3.350"

    8 Shots=.68" Considering I was shooting off a rest on my truck hood in the wind I will take it!

    Just finished building this one. Found a flat-rear Savage at gun shop in North Carolina while on a trip. Pulled the 7mm mag barrel and got a stainless barrel that came from the Savage custom shop. Refiished an older Turkish walnut stock and put it all together.
