    Tom! You're enough to make a grown man weep! Hodgdon's site lists a 4.5 grain spread between min and max with about 200 fps spread. How close can a guy get?? Start at the bottom and work up! Be adventurous!! ~Muir

    Thanks Muir, I was away from home with no wifi, just a desperately slow mobile phone connection, discussing with a mate that I was sure my Barnes home loads had 55gr in them, from memory. Which he thought was a bit over the top, hence the quick post here. Now checked box at home and they do indeed, which is the top end in the tables.

    I was just yanking your chain, Amigo. (It's an American thing) You are picking the right powder as far as I'm concerned. My late Howa 270 loved a charge exactly half way between min and max with 130 and 150 grain bullets. With 150's the first load tried shot all into one hole. One thirties shot .625 inches. Certainly one of the best in American powder offerings for the 270.~Muir
