    Just wondering what powders you guys are having luck with in your 270 WSM's. I'm shooting a 140gr Accubond and H4831sc just isn't giving me what I want. 59.5 and 60.0 grains are giving me about 1 MOA. Looking at trying something different. Thanks for any advice.

    I use IMR 4350 getting 3260 fps with the 140's with 63 grains, I would start at 58 grains and work up 1/2 grain at a time checking for pressure

    I like the heck out of Retumbo in my 270 WSM, clocks the 140 Accubond around 3340 in a 26in barrel with 71gr but it's a stiff load!!!
