That’s the bullet I’m shooting in my current 270 wby and they are crazy accurate. I’m using RL 26 and launching the 140 CH at 3370 FPS

This gun will be specifically for 170 so I hope they shoot great.
I have an accuracy load of a 140gr SST @ 3567fps, pushed by H1000 out of my 270 Wby.

I have not used the 130 Scirocco bullets in the 270 Wby...

But this target is 130 SSTs @ 3600fps.

Well I got my gun back and took it for a test drive today.
270 wby finished length 27” plus brake.
Gun is 8.6lb with scope.
170 elite seated 0.020” off if holding 1/2 - 3/4 moa at 200 yards with RL 26.
3115 FPS is max speed so far.
I will load it up and run it to max tomorrow and try different seating depths.

The rifle range, or archery range or behind the co
I have a 7 rem now so why would I down grade to a 280 AI ? I know the 280 AI has its loyal followers but it’s just not for me. Plus I have a magnum bolt face.
This gun will be so simple for the smith to build !! The gun needs nothing but the new barrel chambered and installed and perhaps the barrel channel opened up a hair.

But if you care to explain your multiple reasons Let’er rip !! I’m willing to here what you think.
Is moving from a 7 mag to a 270 mag not a downgrade?

Hearing that your stocked with brass and dies I’d flip a coin between the 270BEE & the 270 WSM,barrel & action is covered,and dat 28 is gonna sing for supper,Cheers!!!.

I know it's an old cartridge, even ancient, but I've been thinking the venerable 7x57 in 270-7x57 AI would make an excellent round. But looks like you're all set with your new Weatherby. Enjoy!
