I just bought my first Savage (with AccuTrigger) 111Bgl chambered in .270 Win. Just wanted some input on which loads I should shoot. I hunt a lot of open country and sometimes it requires shots up to 300+ yrds. I never like dialing long distance (anything over 200yrds) but if the time comes and I need to, I want to be confident that my selected load is going to do the job at 300 yrds. I was thinking that 130-140 grain should give me plenty of muzzle velocity but at 300+ yrds would I still have the knock down power to effectively take deer cleanly???
I have a 270 savage also, i was shooten 150 grain rgt on papper for 100yards.. i switched down 2 130grain with out re-sighten my gun... since i am shooten 130 grain now would it be hitting low or high jst need sum new info i dont really know about volicity and all that stuff..
