    .270 load advice

    I'm about to take delivery of a new T3 lite in .270 and would like any advice on bullet weight/make, powders ect.

    I was recommended to stick with 130gr as that what the cartridge was designed around and it works for me with that bullet weight.

    I have used speer hotcor soft points but find the Ballistic tips to be much more effective at all ranges

    My 270 has a 19" barrel so I use IMR 4895

    I have a t3 270 this will work I have loaded it for a few 270 .60 grains H4831, cci large rifle primers, 130grain hornady soft points

    +1 on 130gr ammo. H4831 is also a powder I used most.

    Im using the 130g Speer Hot-Cor tried Nosler BT and cant get the same groups so stuck with the Hot-cors at a moderate velocity and a nice tight group powder im using Viht160 at the moment going to try H4831 see what it looks like

    130grain nosler BTs and 60g H4831. Try to get the SC (Short Cut) as I didnt but it meters better apparently.

    Thanks for the response.

    What is everyone's thoughts on the 130gr vs 140gr debate?

    I think I'll try H4831 as a starting point powder wise.

    N160 is a good powder
    as is RL22

    130 does everything although you can get some funky speer and nosler 140gr
    if you are stepping up go to 150gr but I have never really noticed the difference in knock down between them
