    Here are some 100yd results from my first load for the .270WSM 110gr TSX. I'm gonna tweak it a little to see what it will do, but for now I will leave it and raise the group about 1"..

    68.2gr RL-19.... Good group & the gun also has less recoil![​IMG]

    Spino,
    Haven't tried it yet, but have plans too. Right now I'm shooting the 130gn NBT and 135gn SMK. Both bullets are shooting 1/2" and less, mostly less! I really like this cartridge. Before next hunting season I'm gonna step up to the 140gn Ballistic Tip. I think it'll be sufficient for deer. JohnnyK.

    Almost a 100 feet faster then mine

    I shoot a 270WSM also. 68.0grs of #19 gives me 3475 shooting a 110 V-Max. Cool looking shot on that hog,did the bullet go thru? I shot a big huge boar just behind the ear with a 140 gr Nosler Accubond at 27 yards. Bullet fragmented on its neck but it did kill him instantly.

    Actually shot two hogs that weekend and yes the bullet made an exit on both hogs.... Dropped'em like a bolt of lightning! On the picture of the hog is the exit side.....
