    .270 load data 90gr hollow point

    Does anybody have any lad data for 90gr HP in .270 cant find any min / max load info. Im using H4831sc and N160

    Sierra list for H4831SC

    H4831 SC and sierra 90 gr hollow points, start weight 57.9 to a max of 62.3.

    Figures taken from "The complete reloading manual for the. 270 winchester ".

    Use at your own risk.

    I just had a look on the Hodgdon reloading site and they dont have H4831sc the top of the list is H4350, i would have a look at their website and take it from there. I have 9th edition hornady reloading manual and that only goes down to 100grn. If its of any use im using 110grn vmaxes with 52.5grns of N150 these are giving good accuracey and chronographed at around 3200fps. I would seek advice from the more experianced reloaders on here but i think if you are using bullets of that weight you would need a faster burning powder than the two you have stated.

    Just wondering are you looking to try and get similar performance as a 243 ?

    N140 with 90gr HP. The two powders you mention are classic with the expected 130-150gr bullet - 90s need something a tad quicker

    Thanks for the replies , sorry for the delay. I got given a box of 90gr hp and hornady 110gr hp so i thought id see how flat they may shoot for foxing etc. Ill try some n140 as suggested. I think i'll get a few more load books as atm i just have hornady's. thanks again

    I would say N140 is too quick and the data is not available (meaning if you are having to ask the question you probably shouldnt be sailing in uncharted waters without a map and should get back to what you can rely on)



    I ran 90 and 100gr over N160
    58-65gr is the VV data range
    top end loads are compressed


    N150 or RL19 are a good trade off

    Can't disagree, but that feels like a lot of powder. N140, 50gr under Sierra 90gr HP, OAL 3.200" - chug along very nicely indeed.....
