    Hello everyone,

    I just bought a pack of 100 of these bullets. Has anyone used these for hunting or target shooting? If so what are your results and what is your load data?

    Had a friend load them for a very old .270 Win model 70 with average results. He tried 3 powders and I think the barrel was toast before he started. I load the 140 and 150 VLD for my .270 Wby with sub MOA at 200. You may have better results with the Classics in a rifle having a better barrel than his. Good luck

    The rifle is a factory Browning A-bolt that shoots Sierra match kings with 55 grains H4350 with .4 inch groups at 100 yards.

    I use them in a factory Remington and they shoot under half inch at 100. Haven't used them on game yet. I'm using h4831 sc.

    These are what I use in my .270. 54gr of H4350 and I can put five in almost one ragged hole with a factory savage. 1/2 MOA all the way out to 800 no problem.

    H 4831 shoots well out of my gun but every guns different though. I hunt in Utah October to December for deer and elk so I think it's not temperature sensitive.

    mauser34,
    For the .270 WINCHESTER we show a starting load of 50.5 grains with a maximum of 55.0 grains. Approximate velocities are 2795 to 3045 feet per second and it show an approximate fill ratio of 96%.
    Load information is based on a magazine length round (3.340 COAL) and a 26 inch barrel.
