    270 Winchester

    I have started working on a cast hunting load for my 270 Winchester. I have found very little information by searching the site and would like to know what is working for others.

    RCBS 270-150grain sized .279-.280 works best in my 10 twist Win M70 and my friends Ruger American. I gas check with Hornady or a home made check, hasn't shown a difference. 10 grains of Red Dot/Promo for about 1500fps or Winchester 748 for 2000fps. Accuracy tends to fall off after that for me. I use either wheel weight lead or some hard lead I buy here. Lubed with Carnauba Blue from White Label Lube. I tried Powdercoating for both rifles, but the bullet had to be seated pretty far down and I did not like it. The Red Dot load has accounted for 4-5 deer in the last 2 years for us. Ranges from 40 yards to 120. PM me if you'd like and we can talk on the phone.

    I also am on the path of lead and my new Winchester M-70 lightweight with the snable forend.

    So far I have used the Lee 130ish boolit. I powdercoat them but honestly have not devoted the time with load developement to wring them out yet.

    Interested in this thread!

    I'm using this 130 gn n both my 270Savage and 303/270 at speeds up to 2,500fps! It's a scaled down copy of the Lyman 311284.

    Hold Still Varmint; while I plugs Yer!

    Well Worley, have you been able to load anything up and test?

    My best friend developed this pet hunting load for his 270 Winchester , uses the RCBS 270-150-SP .
    Cast of 50-50 ... COWW & soft lead , air-cooled , gas checked , sized .277" .

    34.0 grs. 3031 @ 2009 fps (this is a max load ... start low and work up to it)

    Rifle : Remington model 700 , 22" bbl. length , 1-10 twist .

    This is John's deer and hog load .

    For a Fun Load ... the same boolit over 13.5 grs. Red Dot @ 1591 fps is just the ticket !
