Thread: .270 factory loads

    .270 factory loads

    Which of the commonly available .270 factory loadings would people recommend?

    For hill reds and Perthshire fallow. I'm not terribly bothered by meat damage (within reason). Looking for something that is maximally effective at putting them down promptly.

    Shooting ranges averaging around 180m, but out to 300 possible.

    Shooting unmoderated from 24" barrel.

    All suggestions really appreciated.

    Hornady superformance rounds are good through a 270 as were Federal barnes

    130 federal, 130 rem core lokt, 130 rem accutip (bit harsh on roe, reds ok). 140 geco seem ok but not shot many red with them yet .

    i need to use lead free on the west coast now, either going to use gmx or Norma Kalahari 120s. Ranger.. How do you rate gmx? A mate of same profession is using his favourite Norma Kalahari.
