Thread: Factory loaded 270 ammo

  1. #1

    Factory loaded 270 ammo

    Ive been using norma 140 ballistic tip ammo. Ive found that it performed well. However I've been told that Norma are no longer going to produce this. So what other ammo with a high bc are being used and what do you guys think of them

    I'm expecting a .270 very soon.
    In the cabinet, ready to try, I have:
    RWS 130gr H-Mantel
    RWS 130gr TMS
    Norma 130gr Pointed soft-point
    Norma 110gr V-max (or something with a plastic point, anyway)

    Hornady load two 140gr offerings, which can be found on their website. Not been able to find a stockist of either in my vicinity, but would be interested to hear if anyone knows of one in the country anywhere.

    Norma 110 grain BT or I stick with the Norma 130 grain SP which is a great accurate round in my old Browning

    Are any "range-legal" loads easily available, with non-expanding bullets?
