Reloading 270 Winchester
« on: March 11, 2019, 08:23:31 AM »
I'm about to start reloading 270 win ammo. Friend has a Win Model 70, which he plans to use on coyotes and such.  We kind of figured we want to use 130 gr bullets, most likely Hornady spirepoints.  The big question is which powder to use.  I have 4064, 3031, 748 on hand. These are my go to powders for 30 cal ammo. I also use 748 for .223.

I use RL22 in my 270 Savage 130 and 140 grain bullets.  For yotes I would use 120 grain bullet.

Thanks, Gobihawk.  I have done a little research, and I found that 748 and 3031 are a bit too fast, while 4064 works well. 760, being slower, works well, too.
