My club is running a 1,000 yrd competition on Thursday evening, and it is the last one for this year. My usual rifle for this range (.338 Lap Mag) is with the gunsmith having a sound moderator thread fitted, and so is not available. Therefore, the largest rifle I have to take part, is my Winchester Mod 70, in .270WSM. The rifle has the usual 24' barrel, and is also sound moderated, and is my normal deer/hunting rifle. My usual factory load for this rifle is Winchester 140grn Failsafes. I think over the pond this bullet may be considered ok for Elk etc, but I appreciate this is no match bullet. My questions are threefold: 1 Do you think that the failsafe will be accurate enough at this distance? I have to say I have read and heard a few moans about the accuracy of this bullet, but out of my rifle it is great out to 100yrds. If I simply multiply the size of the groups by ten, I would be happy, but I know things are not so simple. 2 If it will be accurate enough, does anyone know of the BC of the bullet, and approx muzzle energy so that I can try and calculate the elevation needed? My Pal guesses between 17-20 moa, but I am not sure. 3 Have any of you out there ever used this round at long range (either target or hunting) before, and what was your experience? I stress, I would not use this rifle were it not the last shoot, so your help would be much appreciated. AWB PS the 270WSM is super on UK game I have found.
