    Browning X-Bolt .270 - what ammo works for you?

    Browning X-Bolt .270 - what ammo works for you?

    It's very hard to say. I would recommend buying boxes of different 130 gr ammunition and then check which one your rifle likes. Norma 130 gr and RWS 130 gr are two I would try, but you might find your rifle likes Federal or Remington. Here's a short list - Untitled Document

    Regards JCS

    Every rifle can be different, but best factory ammo in my Browning .270 is 130g SP Norma's

    I have a Browning X-Bolt in .270, as do a couple of my friends and we all use Federal Power Shock 130g. They all group to under an inch at 100yds. And at 22.45 a box it is cheap shooting. Hope this helps.

    Sako Powerhead 130g (Barnes TSX) works oustanding in 3 different rifles i have tried on.

    Hiya, i've got a Browning X Bolt in 270, and up till recently, was using Federal Powershok....130gr SP's..they did a fantastic job.....But now i'm reloading for it, 130gr again, using Speer Hot Cor 130gr HCSP with RL22 powder...

    About factory ammo i will suggest a good quality cartridge as Norma or Federal with a 130 grains, not copper, bullet..

    normally I would agree but as I have just been gifted some Sako/Barnes Factory 130gr which group exceptionally well to the same POI as my "norma copy" homeloads, there is value in trying them
