Thread: Best bullet for 270 win

    Best bullet for 270 win

    Hi just bought a styer mannlicher 270 Winchester pro hunter, just wondered if a anyone had advise on what bullet to use I e make , and weight . It's for all breeds of deer, might even go down the home load road?

    I really liked Hornadys 130 gr SST bullet, always worked very well with great stopping power. 110 gr v-max is worth a look too.

    I use Hornady 140gr boat-tail softpoints: I like to pretend my .270 is a 7x64.

    I have shot hundreds of deer of various species with Speer 130 gr and Hornady 140 grainers with no complaint from my game dealer.

    This is the correct answer, on both points.

    The 270 really shines with a 140 gr bullet, I don't get this light bullet crap.

    Just because you are paranoid, doesn't mean they aren't out to get you......

    Norma 130 grain SP factory or Nosler 130 grain Accubond in my homeloads. Both seem to do the trick very well.

    130gr for me
    unless the 140-150gr are pushed very hard there is no advantage in energy delivery or ballistics over a well made soft point
    130gr also comes in more flavours

    Only used 150gr in my Browning A-Bolt and had no complaints yet

    I'm using Norma 130gr soft points for deer and Norma 110gr V Max for foxes. Both factory loads.

    Can't say that they're the best, but they work for me and my rifle.

    I've owned several 270 WIN's over the years and presently have one . Also have a 270 Weatherby and had a 270 WSM . In all three cartridges all I have ever used were 130 grain bullets . Be it a Nosler 130 BT , a Nosler 130 Partition , a Hornady 130 SST , a Barnes 130 TSX or a Combined Technology 130 Ballistic Silvertip . Oh yeah I also used Sierra 130's a few times . In those three cartridges the bullets I mentioned did an excellent job on all the whitetail deer I fired them at .
