    Hey guys!! I have a 264 winmag I hunt with currently an have good kills out to 400 yards. I recently purchased a Winchester coyote lite in a 270wsm an was looking for excellent factory loads or hand loads with excellent results. The only factory load I saw an really liked was the new/kinda new Hornady precision hunter with the 145 eld-x bullet. I have not shot it yet but looks good on paper. Any input would be great.. I currently shoot the 143 eld-x out of my 264 an have been impressed so far with it.

    Shoot 129 Lrx as fast as you can shoot them.

    I shoot a 270 WSM with 145 ELD-X over H1000 with very good results and deer and pig. They are handholds at just over 3100fps. Wicked performance out to about 600yds so far.

    I bought some LRX to try. The reviews seem good but in server cold weather people were saying the tip would break off during a rough chamber.

    They are good bullets but I actually had the tip break off while hunting in -25c once in a tikka.
    I used them last winter in my 270 wby with out a problem.

    Out to 500 yards I would look at the 140gr Accubond. That bullet works well with 1:10 twist barrels. I ran this setup for years using 4350 to push them 3075 to 3100 from a stock 24” barrel and out to 500 yards it is a great deer round. You can push the 140s faster but no need at this distance for deer. Just more recoil.

    Berger Classic Hunter 140gr BC 523. Re 26. 3150 was the sweet spot for me from a 24” barrel.
