Thread: .270 factory loads any suggestions

    .270 factory loads any suggestions

    Evening folks just a quick one. I shoot Winchester PowerPoint 130gr at the moment and always been reasonable round but think it might be time to try a newer load and see if it suits my rifle better. Any recommendations ??

    When I'm not using home loads I am a very big fan of any blue box federal ammo. i have bought some of the blue box 130grn soft points for my .270 and I am confident they will shoot well

    Remington 130gr corelock. Excellent round and very accurate in my experience. Bullet retains weight very well from experience of recovering heads from deer iv shot. Had 1 go down to 97gr and that hit shoulder ribs then shoulder and was lodged under the skin on the opposite side. This was a roe doe at 220yds.

    I reload for mine, but my pal uses RWS 130gr H-Mantel to good effect.

    Norma SP 130g have been a great factory round for me over the years. They are not the cheapest by any means but suit my old browning so happy to pay a bit extra for something that works. These have accounted for all sizes of deer from munty to big Reds and the hardy Sika.

    Up until now I've used Federal Powershok in 130gr & found them excellent

    I'm just starting to look into this myself.

    Has anyone tried the Hornady 140gr SST superformance?

    No longer buy factory
    but 25 years of shooting norma 130gr SP
    tried Winchester, federal. Remington, rws and always came back to 130gr Norma

    not a fan of SST's in any calibre to be honest,
    as the .270 is already north of 3000fps I am not sure it is a cartridge that requires the "Superformance" treatment.
    sounds like a recipe for on site soup

    I'll be looking to slow mine down to around 2700fps once my reloading kit finally gets here (zero points to Sportsmanguncentre on this one................ordered 23rd December and STILL not here) A friend loaded me some rounds last year at around this speed with 130gr bullets & it was very sweet. I hope to replicate that load

    I have a circa 2800fps 130gr load which works a charm.
