Thread: 270 wsm loads

  1. #1

    Default 270 wsm loads

    Recently came across a screamin deal i couldnt pass up on a rem 700 xcr
    270wsm. 1:10twist. 24" barrell. Im a barnes fan so i was lookin at the 130/140tsx. I also saw that
    Barnes has the LRX in 129gr for .277 that looks promising with its high bc. Heard wsm's like rl 17..? Any
    Loads ..powders..etc appreciated. Thank you

    I have a push feed Mod. 70 in 270 WSM, and have found a good load with 140 gr Hornady BTSP Interlock over 72 grains of Accurate MagPro. Consistently under 3/4" for 5 shots at 100 yds.

    Well after hrs of research, i think im gonna start with 130 tsx's, and have narrowed down the poweder to 22/17/magpro. Now all i gotta do is let it warm up a llil and start shootin and see what she likes.

    I have a new xbolt in the same. I have RL17, 19, 22, 15, and some mag pro.

    I am hoping to fireform some new brass with some old sierras and speers that I have in stock, but I also want to work up a better load with TTSX's - I bought a hundred of them so I just need to get some time to get working on the bench. I am hoping that she'll be a shooter, have had pretty good luck with my other japanese rifles.......

    I have heard good things with both the RL and the magpro.

    How you going to break her in? I am thinking medium loads with the sierras - 3 shots and a wipe, 3 shots and a wipe.

    I will use the old bullets for offhand practice.

    Anyone loading 110 TTSX's in their 270WSM's? I'm going to handload this combination for/with a friend for spring black bear. (He's seen what my 257WBY does to black bears with 100grn TSX's). BTW, nice load development and shooting Stid.

    RL-22 66.5gr
    140gr TSX BT
    Federal 215 primer
    Shoots 1/2" groups pretty easy and some smaller as long as I do my part. Couldn't tell ya what the COAL is at the moment I'm not at home but found if I seated them slightly deeper they were a little more accurate. I've never chronographed em so I couldn't tell you what velocity they are running at but I should some day. This load shows 2 grains over max in Barnes reloading manual but before they came out with the reloading manual I wrote to Barnes for load recommendations and this was one of the loads they sent me. I was a little surpised when I bought the manual later when it came out and seen they showed a 64.5 grain max with RL-22 but I've had no issues. I've experimented with lighter loads with this bullet as well as other bullets and powders but I consistantly come back to this load as it has given me the most accuracy.

    I really wanna try to get the 130's to group..as they have a lil better bc than the 140's. But by no means am i scared to try the 140's if they shoot well. Im sure you are over 3200fps..dependin on barrell length

    The BC is actually a little higher in the 140gr TSX (.404) compared to the 130gr TSX (.374). You loading the TSX or the TTSX?

    I dont have a book infront of me but i do believe in .277 the 130 tsx actually has the edge on the 140 in bc. And unlike most others the tsx has a higher bc than the ttsx. Im wantin to experiment with the tsx. I belive 130 is .431 and 140 is .404. That is for tsx

    I believe the .404 is the bc for the 130 ttsx

    I should be going over 3200fps rifles a Sako Finnlight with a 24" barrel. I might chronograph some loads when I get home.

    I am working up load development right now. When cycling my rounds, I see that my bolt release button is not sticking up on my Xbolt - I will compare it to my .338xbolt...hmmm. It's never been shot.

    I have a box of old nosler soft point bullets in 150gr (price tag on the box says $4.75. I only have 50 of them, but I am using half of them to work up one load. I am using Magpro and R19. 3 loads of each 3 shots each load. 18 rounds.

    I am also loading Barnes TTSX in 130 gr. I am putting them on top of Magpro and R19. 4 loads, 3 shots each load. 24 rounds.

    Also have 130gr Hornady Interbonds. Same gig - Magpro and R19, 4 loads each powder, 3 shots each load. 24 rounds.

    Last but not least, I thought I would try a couple H4831 - just in case. 6 rounds.

    I just read that Barnes likes to be .050" off the lands - so I have to go seat all of the barnes down a little bit (due to the copper bullet creating higher pressures if it is tight to the lands - it sounds like it wants a head start. The others will be within a couple thousandths of the lands.

    I'll chrono all shots and get back with you on which ones work/don't work in this Xbolt. I am going to shoot them off of a lead sled....that is a lot of boolitz! I'll list all the data I can when I post up. Using non-fire formed new winchester brass. Federal 215M primers. Cases all trimmed to 2.0915. Weight sorted (the wins were actually pretty good - within 4 grains in 100 cases). OAL varies with bullet. Even in some of the same OAL's I had to adjust dies to get the land setting I was looking for (diff in Ogive shape/location).

    Time to go smoke some powder!

    Well - I compared the .270 to the .338 and the brand new xbolt is missing the tab that pushes up the release button.........maybe I won't be burning any powder today.

    Got it back and got the loads worked up and emptied out. It eats the ancient noslers the best, but not great - .832 was my best 3 shot group. I guess that I will try some other powder when I run into some - and maybe play with the OAL. The noslers were 2.879 OAL - set to the lands the OAL was 2.9725 in my rifle.

    I hear that the barnes like a .050" or better jump - anyone seen this to verify? Seems like steve was shooting 2.740 OAL - maybe I should back the barnes off a bit. They hit the lands at 2.859" OAL, and I set them to 2.810" for the final loads.

    I just chrony'd some loads last week in my win mod 70 fwt 60 grain re17 using 130 grain tsx's gave me very consistant 3250 fps with great accurracy. I have orderd some of the new 129 lrx's because you get a bc boost from .373 to.463 and want to see how they perform.
