    I find it amazing the .270 win is showing these high velocities with a 22" barrel. For me the shorter barrel is the key,as a sheep hunter I choose a light, short rifle for my hunting .I wonder how the Weatherby or the wsm would do with a 22"barrel and this combo?

    Sounds like are you saying the Savage 270 wsm has a shorter barrel..
    Am I correct? Wonder how it chronographs?

    That must be a magic 270 wsm savage , I have had 4 270 wsm rifles and have only came close to 3200 fps with pressure with the 150gr bullets. 3350fps is where the 130 gr bullets should shooting.

    I do know folks that love their wsm's . I hear the .270 is the best of them but brass life is like weatherby brass and most rifles chamber less well the longer versions. The problem as I see it is as a mountain rifle,used horseback and carried Bandolier style up a rock chute..it has got to be compact.That is why I stay away from chamberings that need long tubes.Does the .270 wsm need a long barrel to really perform? I would like to chronograph some comparisons...Tony

    Weighs 9lb 10 oz with a 2lb scope and mounts. 24" barrel sporter handles well. I bought it for a treestand gun. It should be a deer flipper !
    I'm on the 5th firing on this winchester brass ,no problems, wsm brass primer pockets last forever.
    My winchester 300wsm brass is on its second barrel.

    Morning, thanks for the info,Brice. Myself ,I have used the .270 win here in BC for all game we encounter but I am primarily a sheep hunter and (nearly)always kill a bull elk. I have never even seen a tree stand and don't know what that is about ,really. Reloder 26 has added some options for myself and if it pushes the 160 partition or the 150 accubond like I think it will ,it will make it even more versatile. Truth be known I have never really needed more speed but why not...if there is no over pressure issues or recoil issues.Cheers

    Could you tell me what was your starting charge and OAL using RL26 for the 340? I'm helping some friends reload for their 340's and I have 8lbs of this powder. We are looking at the Barnes 210gr TTSX, 225gr & 250gr Accubonds as bullet choices. Any and all info would be appreciated. Oh, they have stock 340 Mark V's.

    Thanks
    Doug

    Ok I got a chance to get to the range today to check out a few loads using RL26 and Hornady 143 ELDX bullets in my 6.5 Creedmoor.
    26" barrel Nosler brass BR2 Primers 2.890"OAL
    I tested with a Magnetospeed installed. Three shot groups. gun)

    46gr. 2872 fps average vel. ES 13 SD 6.5
    46.5gr 2908 fps average vel. ES 6 SD 3
    47gr 2939 fps average vel. ES 10 SD 5.5
    47.5gr 2954 fps average vel. ES 11 SD 5.85
    48gr 2999 fps average vel. ES 12 SD 6.6
    48.5gr 3029 fps average vel. ES 13 SD 6.65
    49gr 3054 fps average vel. ES 19 SD 9.6 *
    *this load was compressed I had to use a drop tube to get all the powder in.

    48grs had best group of .216"ctc 49gr was not too bad at .567"ctc
    group average center was same point of impact between 47.5 gr. and 49 gr.
    I am going to work on loads up and down from 48 gr. and try longer and shorter COAL.
    No sign of pressure observed and when I popped the primers from the 48.5 and 49 gr loads they were just as tight as the lightest load.
    I will do all the rest of my load work up without the Magnetospeed installed and check velocity after I have arrived at the most accurate load.
    Then I move on to distance.
    Also I have 200 of the Nosler Accubond Long Range 142 gr bullets coming in to check out.
