    I should think hornady superformance 140gr sst's will knock them over pretty well!

    I can't recommend any particular brand or make but would suggest that the bullet should be at least 150gr and preferably round nosed. The H.O. guidance actually suggests a minimum of 150 grn.
    When I had a .270 and was intending to use it on boar I loaded some rounds with the speer 150grn R.N. bullet but I never got a chance to actually try these loads though range testing indicated that they should have been O.K. for the task. Generally I would say that you need to get loads that have the heaviest toughest bullet possible something like the Norma Vulcan or RWS H-Mantel.
    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.

    Would have thought heavy and well constructed with a bonded core would be the ticket. RWS or Norma will have something they reccommend

    Crikey why didn't I think of that- my favourite bullet in .308win but I would think that they would be just as good in .270w.
