    Vmax 110gr in 270

    Anyone used the Vmax BT 110gr bullets for reloading?? I already use and love the 87gr Vmax in 243 for reloading, but not got a clue with a "lighter" bullet in 270, I've only ever done 130gr SP...

    Thanks in advance chaps...

    I tried them in my 270wsm, don't use them if you plan to pick up/eat what you shoot. I shot foxes with them and the easiest way to find them was look for the steam, they are savage. I wouldn't put them near deer, I use 130g sp at 3380fps the 110g were just short of 3600fps.

    not Vmax but have 400 surplus 100gr speer soft points I have just worked up a load for

    will make short work of anything they hit given the speed I think they will be going!
    circa 3300-3350 fps at a guess

    not the most accurate but inside an inch and as they were free I don't mind so much

    I used them on fallow / munty / red and roe, no problem, pump house, if head shooting you don,t need to carry antlers home, foxes they make a mess of, very accurate.

    Fast. Very fast. They were at least 6" (forget exactly) higher at 100yrds than the 130g.

    Noth Yorkshire(ish)....Other places in Scotland depending Which deer i'm after!
    The 110 vmax in factory Norma I found to be excellent killers of deer but could at times be a little harsh with shoulder damage on roe. However when I reloaded my own 110 vmax I didn't push them as fast and found less damage but still maintained the excellent killing ability.
    I currently load 110 Sierra soft points because I got a few boxes cheaper than the vmax.
    If you want the vmax for foxes then push them fast, if you want excellent deer killers back them off a bit. I always load for the most accurate load anyway regardless of velocity, and 9 times out of ten that entails not having the load as fast as it can be.

    For the record..... I found the hornady 87 vmax factory rounds to be the best roe deer round I could find.... and I tried a he'll of a lot including home loading.

    ive used home loaded 110gr vmax in my 270 for years, as monarman says accurate devistating on foxes and a little messy on deer but good for reds if you push them a little slower. I have matched norma vmax speeds but tailored them to my rifle making them more accurate than me, this means I can go and buy factory ammo when needs be and not have to use more than 2 to check zero, also means I can fireform brass easily.
