So its wh270 Longole different cartridge with fast twist, longer barrel and longer throat. So why not give this old cartridge a catchy name for it. We have the .270AI so I think we need something to separate it from the standard cartridge. I am calling my new one .270 Heavy, got .270 Fatboy as suggestion. I am pretty sure the name was for the cartridge, I hope.

What do you think? PLEASE! No CM!

Whatever. it just add to the long list presently. It will end up with great discissions around the camp fires.
The "270 twister" seem to fit. To add a little more powder it go to a 280AI case length. It's a little longer to the shoulder to be able to add more powder into the case.
Btw I run this cartridge simple 270 chamber .01 added to throat 1:9 twist. Shoots 4in group at 1000y -
