Thread: .270 load advice

    .270 load advice

    Evening folks

    I have recently acquired a .270 win that I am looking to reload for. I have h4831 (not sc) and 130 grain nosler partitions. Would anyone be kind enough to offer me some advice on powder weights and case oal etc to save me a little time, money and hair! (Rifle is an R8 with standard barrel).

    Many thanks

    Euan

    The Americans say H-4831, .270 WCF, and 130 grain bullets are like 'apple pies and ice. cream'. Made for each other in their view. I think most replies will advise 58 grains. But my advice is see what Hodgdon's website advises as a starting load and work up using good reloading practices.

    57.3 grains of H4831 in my old Parker Hale with 130 grn Speer grand slams works a bloomin treat. Shoots flat out to 265 yrds.

    I use 54gr of H4831 and 130r sp in my A-bolt. Sweet load out to 200 (so far), soft on the shoulder AND rifle, I get an extra 16 rounds per tub, and I've yet to see a bullet bounce off any deer. Col is 3.18", no crimp, and I use CCI primers

    anyone else's data is of no value as a point of reference in your rifle
    use the load range from the powder manufacturer and work up something that matches your criteria

    you are on the right track though with good solid component choices
    what brass?

    Thanks for responses so far. Currently using Remington brass.

    start at 57 grains and work up. In a long throated Remington I gone to 62, most book maxes are at 60.

    Hodgon powder H4350 150g head. Used the same combination in 2 of the 270's I have had and never let me down. Good round for Sika and Red.

    But other deer legal calibres will also kill providing bullet placement is correct.
