Thread: Load required for .270 with 140 gn SST

    Load required for .270 with 140 gn SST

    Hi Guys

    Does anyone have a good middle of the road load for 270 using 140 gn bullets.

    I would favour RL22, RL19 or RL15 as I have these already.

    Any help gratefully received.

    Dont tell me you've taken the plunge!!! Don't know about 140 gr but 58gr of rl22 under any 130gr works well....are you coming on Saturday???

    Yep I'm shooting on Saturday.

    The 270 isn't mine, loading for another mate. I wouldn't give the 270 house room. Just don't like them?!?!

    I see what you mean. I had never thought of trying to remove the work hardening, probably because life is too short for that sort of thing.

    Thanks to all for the assistance.

    I have some 140gr nosler boat tail ballistic tips loaded over 52gr N160 (about the same as RL22 I think)
    I dont try to push my loads too fast so I would consider this "middle of the road"!

    RL-15 is too fast for your use. RL-19 and 22 will both work. i would use the 22 firt and if you cannot get an accurate load try the 19. Alliant arms have loading data on the web site for rl-22 at 56.5 gns for 2900 fps. Normal precautions apply
