I have a friend that wants to reload for his .270 Winchester. If you have a recipe would you please share. It's a caliber I don't reload for. Thanks in advance.

Any good 130 or 140 grain bullet with enough H4831 to get 3000 to 3100 fps. I am presently using the Barnes 130 TSX. I have used the Hornady 140 BTSP with really good accuracy. Both loads are above the book with today's data.

60gr of H4831 for 130s has been the standard since like forever. The master, Jack O'Connor though said:

"I found nothing more accurate than 49.5 grains of 4064 with a 130 grain bullet."
Thats above most modern reloading book data FWIW.

H4831 and H4350 are both great powders for the 270. Years ago, out of economy, I used 4831 in the family's 30-06, 25-06 and 270s.

I rarely shoot the 270s anymore although it's one of the most inherently accurate and versatile calibers out there for North American game.

Lately I have been experimenting with the new IMR Enduron powders, particularily 4451 and in a couple 270s, a 22" barrel pump and a 22" barrel bolt-action. Ladder loading for pressure and velocity 4451 equals IMR's 4350. Temperature sensitivity is OK (35° vs 75°) A real plus; 4451 burns considerably cleaner. Now for the accuracy tests.

I'm seeing a lot of positive chatter on the web about 4451 in the 270. It's a powder your buddy may want to look into.

I found an accurate (but slow) load using 50.3gr of IMR4831 under a 140g Accubond, WLR primers and mixed brass.

I don't see IMR4831 listed in either of my manuals for a 130gr projectile and the only 4831 listed is the H4831SC which I have yet to find on shelves.

Anyone here have a good starting load using IMR4831 or even H4831 and a 130gr Accubond?

I found IMR4350 listed for the Nosler 130's and loaded some up to test but I'd rather use the IMR4831 because I have 3 pounds of it.

Hi Al,

It would help if we knew intended game.

It's hard to beat H-4831.

For deer, it's tough to beat 130 grain Sierra GameKing bullets, 60 grains of H-4831SC, W-W brass, and Fed 210M primers. But just about any 130 grain .270 Win bullet will kill deer.

I've loaded my .270 Win for elk using 150 grain Partitions. RL-22 works great with heavy .270 Win bullets. I chrono'd 3000 FPS with my 150 grain Partition load.

Others powders that'll work well in a .270 Win are IMR-4350, IMR-4831, and RL-19.

This Website might help: http://www.realguns.com/loads/270win.htm

Best of luck
