Been toying around with building a 270 win with a 1:8 or 1:7 twist? Has anyone done this? If so how do you like it?
Not .270 Win but I have .270 with Lilja 30" 1:8" 3G specifically built to propel 165/175 Matrix. My current accuracy load is propelling the 175 Matrix at 2993 FPS with H4831SC. I really like mine and it's .5-.75 MOA at 1K if I do my part.Been toying around with building a 270 win with a 1:8 or 1:7 twist? Has anyone done this? If so how do you like it?
What reamer did you use for the Lilja barrel. I was just talking to Carson about doing a 270 with a 1:8 or 1:9 twist. He doesn’t cut the 270 chamber just the barrel.Not .270 Win but I have .270 with Lilja 30" 1:8" 3G specifically built to propel 165/175 Matrix.

Here's an excellent LRH article on .270 Win >>> https://www.longrangehunting.com/articles/270-win-for-long-range-shooting.580/
I also prefer the WSM and have had very good results with it!I don’t have a 270 win but I do have a custom 270 wsm 26” barrel. That shoots the 165 matrix at 3000 FPS. And the 126 hammers at 3450fps. We have killed big horn sheep at 704yards with the 165matrix and a few deer closer. and elk at 450yards with the 126hammers.
I never said Carson or Lilja did the chambering, it is not a service they currently provide. I am not sure what reamer, my gunsmith did the chambering. Carson Lilja helped me with my order. I have received excellent customer service from Carson and Dan.What reamer did you use for the Lilja barrel. I was just talking to Carson about doing a 270 with a 1:8 or 1:9 twist.
