I've been creeping around this site for years and searching all kinds of caliber, barrel length, reviews, advice and many other rifle related topics. I love the site and this is my first post. I bought a Winchester M70 Extreme weather in 270 while I was in College Station visiting my girlfriend. I put a Leupold VXR on top with a EGW base and Badger rings. At the range I tried Powershock, Trophy Bonded, superformance 130 and 140, and several other factory loads as I broke it in. It definitely shot minute of whitetail but I wanted a tack driver in 270 that I could put my suppressor on. SO, I took it to my gunsmith in Mansfield Tx and said I want a 26.5" #5 Bartlein 1-10 twist, Timney trigger, Threaded 5/8-24, bedded in the Bell and Carlson stock that came on it, and Cerakote in Texas Tan. Waited forever for the barrel and then it finally showed up. He took a couple weeks to get it all fixed up and then I was ready to go break it in. I put a Bushnell DMR 34MM 3.5x21x50 on it in Badger rings. Worked through loads for 135 grain Sierra Matchking and 140 grain Berger VLD. Norma brass, CCI BR primers, and H4350. The magic load ended up being 140 VLD with 52.5 grains H4350 loaded to 3.659. I read on some other sites how the 270 basically sucked for long range compared to 6.5 creed and I get that the BC is lower. But here is what's funny, it's running 3,050 FPS and it's 2.3 Mils at 500 and 5.2 at 800. At least that's what it was last week when I was able to shoot it that far for the first time. I am very pleased with the rifle and the recoil is about the same with the 30p-1 suppressor and the APA little bastard G2 brake. Just wanted to tell anyone creeping on the site like I have, if you want to build a long range 270 winchester, Do it!!! It works!!!
