Welcome to the forum!
I have a 270Wby also, I found that RE22 and RE25 worked the best in my rifle.
I load 72gr of H4831sc with Speer 130gr SP's, 73gr of RE22 with 130gr Nosler Accubonds, or 75gr of RE25.

I mostly use 140gr and 150gr pills in mine.

A good load with the 140gr Nosler Accubond is 73gr of RE25. I used the same load with 140gr Nosler Partitions.
The best load of all is, 72gr of RE25 and 150gr Nosler Partitions. It shoots into .5MoA @ 500yrds!

All these loads need to be worked up from below, say 5%!

All loads are in Weatherby brass with Federal 215 primers, I also chamfer all flash holes on my brass.

The ultralight has a shorter barrel and a faster burning powder works better in it sometimes because of that. IMR 4350 and IMR 4831. I shoot 77 grains of 7828 in mine with the 130 grain bullet. Good velocity and accuracy. It may do OK in yours but the faster powder may work better in the shorter barrel.

Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1

Nightforce is such a solid combo of reticle, available elevation, glass that is good enough to shoot at the longest range you can dial. Nightforce has bullet proof construction that can handle the incidental horse rolling or some other rodeo action. -- bigngreen

The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
