    Not a 270 WSM but a 270 win.
    150 Hunting VLD with 56.7 Gr H4831.

    With the short mag, you should look at the 165 or 175 Matrix.
    I couldn't get them to stabilize out here on the left coast.

    Shooting that exact load in a sako 85. Factory gun and shoots it like a dream come true! Using retumbo at 69.5 grains with a fed 215 primer. c.o.a.l at 2.880. Running at 3159 fps and in a 4 shot string getting less than 20fps spread. Shoots under a 1 moa group and have taken a number of elk with it out to 650 yards and my bighorn sheep. It's a killer!! Hope that helps

    I'm interested in the velocity you're getting w/ that load in the .270win. Also, any kills with it yet?
