    270 win reloading help - 150gr partitions

    Thanks for clarifying the range and purpose. I can’t really say much that hasn’t been said already except that I’ve personally used a 270 with 150g partitions on deer up to 320 yards and it performed excellently. Unfortunately I have no load data as it was prior to my reloading days. Please...

    270 win reloading help - 150gr partitions

    What is the intended purpose of the load you’re trying to make? Reason I ask is because I noticed you shoot a sendero which my mind associates with long range and working up a load with 150gr partitions which I associate with closer shots that need deep penetration. Aside from that, I like...

    What powder and how much - .270?

    This should be a decent place to start. http://m-b-r.co.uk/PDF/Sierra%20270%20Win.pdf You can also find some loads on Nosler and Hodgdon’s website as a cross reference.

    Help a lost Black Rifle newbie build an AR

    Wow, thank you for that detailed reply. You answered many of the questions I still had about many of the various options available, and brought up things I didn't even realize. I didn't know there were different types of BCG and how they affected the cycling of the rifle. I have a lot more...

    Help a lost Black Rifle newbie build an AR

    After a lot of thinking, I believe it's time I try my hands at owning an AR. Everything I've read says you're much better off building vs buying. So I've been looking at kits to help keep the cost hopefully under $700. The build kits I'm considering are: PSA 16" CHF Mid-Length 5.56 NATO 1/7...

    Browning BOSS settings

    I'm afraid you're correct about the needle in a haystack. I have a 270win with a BOSS and have tried to find this type of info. In the end I had to go with the mfg recs and play with it when shooting factory loads. After I started to handload I basically set it and forgot it. I set it to what...

    Norma powder for 270win. 204 or MRP

    Thanks for the help guys! I'm glad I have some good possible replacements. Roy, I'm glad you mentioned 4000mr because it is available. Do you have any load info that you've came across? I wasn't able to find a lot. If it works out for me, it'll save me about ten bucks a pound. Chris.

    Bedside Pistol Case

    Rt2506, I never thought if it like that. You bring up a very good point about where to place it. Looks like I may do something like wyowin mentioned in the bathroom closet. It's only about 10' from my side of the bed. It'd still be close and secure. Thanks for the insite and help guys...

    Bedside Pistol Case

    It sounds like you and your kids were raised like I was. As soon as I was old enough I was exposed to what firearms were and my dad and I shot all the time. We had a lot of discussions about safety and proper handling. You bring up a good point about taking the wonderment out of firearms...

    Wife said okay to new scope for Christmas, but what one?

    Thanks for all the help guys. Judging by all the replies, sounds like I'll be going with the zeiss most likely. Now I just have to find one to look through if possible. I don't know anyone with any nice quality glass to look through, so I'm going to hit up the local shops. I'll be the first...

    Wife said okay to new scope for Christmas, but what one?

    Thanks for the help guys. I wasn't sure if I'd be handy capping myself with the zeiss because of the lower power, smaller objective and no parallax adjustment. I was wondering that for when I am able to shoot a little farther in practice. Hopefully I'll find one to look through soon to help...
