Guys, i got a friend that just had one built with a 26" Shilen for long-range (out to 1000) coyotes. He's got all the Bal. Tips (130,140,150). Any suggestions for starting loads (especially with some of the temp. insensitive powders, i.e. Hodgdon Extreme, Vihta. Vuor., etc.)??

Whell , My 270 WSM likes 56.5 grains of IMR4350 with Fed primers usin 135G SMK's. 58 Grains of IMR4350 with fed primers and 130g Noslers. Best way to find out is load up 5 of each load and go tot the range and practuse, Take a note book and write down which load shot the best. I have yet to try any other powder's BUT theres always this year to experiment.
Good Luck

Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1

The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
