best 270 win ammo?

Reply
Hey yall,

Looking to switch rounds for my winchester model 70 .270. I had been shooting 150gr ballistic tips and found that I was NEVER getting a blood trail; resorted to shoulder shots which equaled wasted meat. I have begun researching and know that I want to drop down to 130gr. I don't expect to have to make shots past 250-300 yds.

I'm looking at Accubonds, Interbonds, or Partitions. Anybody have any input on these? I want a pass through wound with solid expansion.

Thanks

Try Hornady Light Magnums I have been shooting them for 14yrs now out of a Savage Rifle. Very accurate load. I think I shoot 139gr.

Stay away from the ballistic tips, not worth crap.

years ago I was told by some experts to switch Fusion. Sold at Academy. Best advise I ever got. Deadly and leaves one hell of a blood trail

Luckydog,

Just plain 130gr federal fusion factory loads? Do you get clean pass throughs, good expansion, and does the bullet overly fragment? Thanks for your help

winchester is the worst ammo i have ever used, the sxp bullets will fragment with little to no blood trail, i have been using 130gr corlokt, only shot two deer with it questionable shots but had no other choice, ''tracked'' a spike deer about 50yds from point of impact to where he killed over zero blood, had to make a follow up shot on the big buck i shot last year and got a pass through on the second shot and that was it, found some 150gr federal i am waiting to see what they do

I shoot 130gr Fusion in my .270. I have killed 8 since switching to Fusion, only needed to follow bloodtrail twice. Both times less than 30 yds. The rest took a nap where they stood.

If you are going to shoot the little caliber guns you should get with Corbon and get you some ammo and learn to make better shots!That simple..

The accubond are too hard for deer, pass thru too quick and small hole. I got every deer but most ran 100 or more yards. Inter bond is a bang flop. I got thirty big bucks in a row all bang flops and 15 hogs just last season with them none took a step. Regular 270 mountain rifle with 130 grain inter bond. They are hard to find though.
