My vote is Remington Core-Lokt in 130 grain. Lighter grain will give you the flattest trajectory to give you the distances you require.

But that's also just a personal preference. But several makes/grains and test them out to see which fits you/your rifle best is the best advice I can give.

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..

Default 130 gr bullet

I have just recently purchased a bushnell 3-9x40 with the new doa 600 for my remington 7600. I hunt in northern Canada and the shots for me are usually with in 300 yards but also at the same time there's a lot of bush hunting. The scope box says 130 gr bullets for the scopes trajectory. Any suggestions on 130 gr bullet? Thanks

Default Are you a reloader or a factory ammo shooter?

If you reload or have a friend that does I personally like Nosler Bullets. They make Ballistic Tips and Partitions in 130gr. Federal loads the Partitions in their Premium line but I am not sure of the bullet weight offered. Federal Fusions are a standard priced load that is suppose to behave like a more expensive offering. I know of several hunters that swear by the standard Remington Core-locks loads. You need to try several factory offerings if that is the way you are going, your rifle may not like what you want to use.

Default Absolutely

Absolutely, I am a Marine stationed in Virginia and I have a Ruger M77 .270 and i have a Nikon scope with bullet drop compensator turrets on mine that i can onsistently shoot 3'' rings with at any range from 100 to 500 yds. It is one of the most widely used rifle caliber's for deer hunting. I would stick with the 130 Gr Nosler ballistic tip if you want an all around amazing trajectory that i have taken deer with at 500 yds. no problem. I also have a Remington Model 700 .308 that set up for long range. Zero is 200 yds and i can engage targets at 1200 yrds accurately all day long. Enjoy, shoot as often as possible and really get to know your weapon and how it shoots.

Default Favorite elk rifle

I have a Savage 111 in 270win using Barnes 130gr spitzers @3000fps. (Hand loads) Zero is 200yds. 1/2 moa groups out to 500yds, with a drop of 36.6inches @ 500yds. Trigger was cleaned up and lightened by a trusted gunsmith. My rifle doesn't seem to take to the 150gr bullets. I really love this caliber!!! Some friends say the load is too light for elk, but I have never shot an elk that wasn't an immediate stop with this combination.

Default Most would agree that the 270 Win is minimum for Elk

I would not say your 270 Win will not work on Elk, of course it does. It is probibly at the starting end of all the Elk cartridges. If your rifle liked the 150gr load in a controlled expansion bullet you would have more sectional density working for you. The higher the SD the deeper a bullet will penetrate on the animal. I would be tempted to try the 140gr loads sense your rifle doesn't like 150s. I always read you can't go wrong with 180gr loads in a 30-06 for Elk, using a 270Win they usually recommend the 150gr. These two have similar sectional densities. Bottom line stay with a controlled expansion bullet in a weight that your rifle likes. Most important thing is to put that bullet in the right place on the animal.

I believe a 140 gr premium bullet in the 270 win is just about perfect. I like Remington premier line with swift a-frame bullets. I also agree that the 270 is the starting point for elk and prefer 150 gr for elk. I took my Rem 700 in 270 as a back up for the Weatherby 270 mag shooting 150 gr.

My PA buddy shoots a 300 weatherby rifle and hit a bull square in the shoulder and had to shoot it again.
