    I think your N160 .270 load might be a tad off the mark!

    I can't fit more than 62gns of N160 in a .270W case - you'd probably have to use a 3 tonne bearing press to get 130gns in there...

    If I have to switch from H4831 to N160, my load will be around 60gns to get approx' 3,000 feet per second with a 130gn bullet.

    i think he is talking bullet weights!

    I use 55.5gr N160 under 130gr Interlocks
    you can squeeze a lot more in there but it is the lower accuracy node in my rifle and saves on powder, recoil, carcase damage and everything else that another 5gr will produce!

    Yeah was meaning bullet weight, also loading for accuracy not speed.

    Try 35.8 grains of viht 140 in your .22-250, I get bug hole groups with 52 grain a-max in my Tikka with this load.

    In the 22-250, my best load with 52g Barts was 35.6g of N140.
    Sorry can't help with the 270 Win.

    I put 33.6 of 140 behind 55g Midway Dogtown SP in a 22.250 Tikka. A very effective round.
    I cant get the Dogtowns anymore but Winchester's are shooting just as well.
