I've always used the 130's and I've never had a deer get to far no matter how bad my shot was... I know it will destroy a front shoulder tho... but I'm sold on winchester supreme with the nosler ballistic silver tip 130's but thats just me

Well our deer opener was on 11/03/07 and I got the chance to put the Remington 130gr AccuTip's to the test! I had a nice doe come out in the clover field I was set up on at 294yrds towards the evening. I ranged her again as she came in a little closer at 256yrds. She pretty much stayed there. It was getting close to sundown, so I made the decision to try and take her. I ranged her again, and now she was even closer at 190yrds. I took the shot, got off a good smooth break on the trigger and WACK! Wrote her a parking ticket right there! My first time deer hunting with a .270 win. The bullet went through her right side just behind the shoulder, took out both lungs and part of the heart, exited through the left shoulder blade and made an exit hole almost the size of a golf ball! I was really impressed with how these bullets performed for my first kill using this gun and load. For this year anyway I think I'm going to stick to these Remington Premier AccuTips.

Good Luck Fellas!

Best .270 Deer load

If you reload for the .270 win its hard to beat 58gr of IMR 4831 with a 130gr slug. I have had great sucess with the 130gr barnes xbt(old style) but am almost out and will more than likely switch to the Nosler Accubond. Two years ago I shot a respectible buck at what turned out to be about 310 yds when a buddy lasered it later. One shot one kill stopped it in its tracks with a through and through shot hitting the oppisite shoulder bone. I held dead on. I sight my rifle 3" high at a hundred. What all this says to me is flat, fast, and plenty of bone crushing penetration.

I've shot 130, 140, & 150gr bullets and you can't go wrong with any of them. I personally like the 150's, they seem to group better at long range. With the bullets I use that is and in my rifle. Excellent round....

We cannot continue to do the same things and expect different results

All guns shoot different and will perform differently. It sounds like you have a load that you are satisfied with. That is great, but it would amaze alot of shooters the kind of groups that can be acheived with hand loading. I shoot a weatherby in a .270 win and also use a 130 gr. bullet. I use a speer spitzer 130 gr. with hogdon 4350. One big factor in accurate loading is the head spacing in the cartridge and that is something a factory load cannot match to a particular gun.

Hi just join the site and saw your post i to have a few question about a 270win. This year i was able to draw a ranching for wildlife elk tag here in colorado. I used my 270 for this with remington 150gr core locks and was very pleased with the outcome. I took a cow elk at about 420 yards, I didn't place the shot to good. Hit her a little high and a little far back, but thankfully she only went about 15 yards and laid down. The core locks really put a hurting on her, my question is where should i sight my gun in so that it will be dead on at 300 yards, right now i'm shooting 1.5'' high at a 100

if your .270 win. is sighted in at 200 yrds at 400 yrds it will drop 19 in.
