    I purchased a Winchester M70 EW SS in .270 WSM, and am looking for a good hunting load. I have reloader 22, and 19 on hand, I also have 4831sc and Varget. As for primers I have Fed LRM 215, and 140gr Nosler Accubonds along with Sierra 140 gamekings, and Federal brass. I'm going out to try and find some 130gr pills this morning, and Mag Pro if it's available. If anyone has a good recipe for this round, or any recommendations I would greatly appreciate them...thanks.

    Thats with the same rifle you are shooting. The only mod I made was a timney trigger. Those extreme weathers are super accurate for a factory rifle. I have found that if you shoot VLD type bullets they seem to like a LOT of jump. Just keep that in mind if your having trouble with groups.
