Ok. I'm going on a guided elk hunt in october. The guide is a pretty good friend of the family. And he was saying to bring a gun I'm not to attatched to. Because it will get scratched and dinged atleast once. And that brings me to one of my .270's I picked up an marlin xl7 its an awesome gun for the price. But if it gets scratched I'll live. Iv only loaded 110's and 130's for it. But I'm told by a lot that the .270 with 150's will do a great job. What are some good 150gn rounds to load. I usually use imr4064 or varget. And reloader22. I have all on hand. I like nosler but heard they break up a lot. Any info would be great. Thanks.
