    100gr Soft Points in .270 (reloads)

    So I have over 400 of these little suckers, as they don't appear to be sought after I thought I would load some

    Ran a range of charges from 58-64gr N160

    got fairly decent results at 60 and 64gr, the latter slightly better at 1/2-3/4"
    using VV data they appear to be pushing around 3250fps at 60gr and 3400fps at 64gr

    one thing i do notice is the muzzle flame is impressive from 64gr N160! in a 23" barrel
    wondering if a faster powder or maybe a magnum primer might tame that

    does anyone actually use 100gr soft points on deer?
    What results?

    I had a thought that these would make a cracking hind round
    more energy at 120yds than a .243 100gr round at the muzzle!

    Bewsher you are probably only burning 92% of your 64 grain charge of N160 in the 23" barrel.
    Viht N550 would give you a more complete % burn & good case fill ratio too.

    I've just tried some Ramshot Hunter with the 110gr GS Custom's today. Worked up from 61gr (3345fps) - 66gr (3600fps). Will definitely use this powder from now on. 3000 ME and super flat trajectory does it for me.

    Oh, and I'm using Fed 215 Mag primers.

    Many years ago, Winchester produced a factory .270 load with a 100 grain soft point. It was mustard on hinds.

    have lots of powders but nothing between N140 and N160 unfortunately!!

    might have to find some
