Hi,
I have been working on an axis 2, in 270 winchester. I have settled on 130 grain Nosler BTs. IMR 4831, 52 grains, going about 2800 fps. I took 3 shoots at 400 yards and the second shot hit the bottom of the tank target holding dead on.
Still working on it.

Ruger has a ballistic calculator, that I used for this cartridge:
270
RangeVelocityEnergy
From Ruger web calculator:

270 Winchester, Savage axis 2
130 grain Nosler BT
IMR 4831 52 grains yielding approx.

At the muzzle
2800 fps
2263 = energy

100 yards 2530 fps, 1848 = Energy
Scope set about 8 inches high at 100 y

200 yards 2276 fps, 1495 = energy
Maybe 2 inches high?

300 yards 2036 fps, 1197 = Energy
-4.11 inch drop

400 yards 1813 fps
energy = 948.0
-18.94 inch drop

500 yards
1607 fps
745.0 = energy
-44.38 inch drop

I haven't figured out how to post a new thread , but, I saw some cool rifles and wanted to share.

Pre WW2 Winchester 70. In 300 H&H but back then it was called 300 Magnum. The 300 wm was yet to be introduced.

Here is an old Winchester 70 not too far out from the invention of the 30.06 cartridge. The WW1 rifles started out as 30 Government caliber. The thought was 200 or so grain bullets tossed at slower fps. The Germans and the Spanish Mauser changed all that. Pederson saw a future in the .277 , Garand was leaning toward the semi auto in a caliber he called 30 Garand.
The response to the 7mm Mauser or other faster projectile cartridges in battle rifles was...
30 Government changed to 30.06, 150 grain bullet going 2600? Man killer. Bolt rifles.
Garand was able make a semi auto rifle by WW2...to handle the long action 30.06 , and a legendary cartridge was born. 1906, 30 cal, 30.06.

I had one. One of the best rifles I owned. Finally shot it out.

The marking was aways fun to me, no need to specify which .300 Magnum as there was only one. Still very useful if you have one.
