    Load for 270 Winchester 110gr Hornady VMax with H4831SC

    Hi all,

    Just thought I would post a load that I am having a lot of success with at the moment. I am pushing this 270 110gr VMax bullet using 60.5gr H4831SC powder through my Sako A7 and it is performing very well. I havent chronographed it to find out the exact velocity, but i believe it to be traveling at 3136fps. I have shot a target out at 600 yards and wacked it smack on line, but 2 inches off to the side because of windage. I am very very impressed with this load and thought I would share it with you all.

    Have you shot any deer with it yet? Accuracy is only half the story

    I run the same bullet at 59gns of H4831 and thought that was pretty much maximum - any more and I get a rapid build up of pressure signs, particularly hard extraction. It is very, very accurate, but stupidly messy on deer - best kept for shooting stuff you don't want to eat. I'll have to check my load records for the chrono readings, as I think it is going faster than 3,130FPS.

    61.3gr in 100gr

    54gr for 130gr

    so somewhere inbetween

    28 Roe and 3 foxes and a big Billy in 3 months. So accounting for a few

    Just double checked the max loa for this and it is 62gr. I'm not showing any signs of pressure, but all guns shoot and act differently with the same load. I have just found that I am having a reasonable amount of success with this setup.
