Just picked up a new 270wsm for this years sheep hunt and need to find some factory ammo for it. All I've really ever shot was Remington Core-Lokt or Winchester soft points so I'm really not familiar with how the other bullet styles perform. Are there any bullet styles I should stay away from for sheep or larger game? I'm leaning towards 150gr and have found the following:
Remington AccuTip Boat Tail 150gr
Winchester XP3 150gr
Federal Nosler Partition 150gr
Winchester Ballistic Silvertip 150gr
In 140gr these is Fail Safe, Nosler AccuBond, Trophy Bonded Bear Claw, TSX.
With the price of ammo I would like to narrow things down to 3 or 4 loads before I start shooting for groups.
