    .270 and H4381

    There is a free digital edition of Guns magazine here
    GUNS Magazine August 2011 Digital Edition
    On page 22/23 there is a short article about H4831 and the .270 Winchester, which some may find interesting...

    It's true - 130gn bullets and H4831 is the 'go to' combination for the .270.

    I run mine using 130gn Hornady Interlocks over 60gns of H4831 but it's good to have alternatives given the crappy supply of powder in the UK. I have had good results with Reloder 22 and Vihtavouri N160 and a mate likes to use H4895 for a slower load.

    H-4831 and the 270 (and 30-06, etc) has been a pretty well established combination in the US for decades. I grew up with this powder as at one time, you could buy it surplus in hardware stores, cheap! People loaded it in everything but especially 270 and 30-06. Hodgdon's used to put out data for it's use in 22 Hornet! H-4831 and 4350 are my go-to powders for all large capacity cases. ~Muir

    I use it in my 270 and in my 243 WSSM, a bonus both calibers working so well with the same powder.
