Do any of you guys use a Steyr Mannlicher model M in .270 and if so what weight of ammumition do you find suits your rifle best please?
The reason I am asking is because I will be pick up a Mannlicher M in .270 very shortly (As soon as my variation comes back) and would like to get an idea of what weight of ammunition might suit it best.
At the moment I am using a Parker Hale Safari (.270) and it is pretty accurate (And cheap to feed) with PPU 130g soft points. Much of the shooting I do with the .270 is Park and Farm Deer Culling (Mainly head shots out to about 100 yrads) but I also use it for a bit of Roe Stalking (Heart and Lung shots) and of course the occasional Fox that is stupid enough to show itself in my crosshairs (A bit of overkill I know, but dead is dead and they don't get up after being hit with a .270)
I don't currently reload my own ammunition, I used to for my .222 and .243 but would rather not start down the reloading road again unless it is absolutely necessary.
I fully realise that what suits one rifle might not suit another but a generalisation would be helpful as a guide/starting point from Mannlicher (Especially Model M) users would be appreciated.
