Hey guys, I have a new Browning A-bolt 270. I need to know what suggestions are out there about what grain to shoot. Hunting deer out to about 250 yards. But mostly around 75 yds. Thanks for the help

140gr is the best of both worlds. I like the Accubonds for hunting and SGK BTSP for practice (sub MOA and cheaper).

IMR4350 or RL17 are the cat's pajamas, as well as H4831, RL19, RL22 and many others. The .270 is usually not hard to load for.

EastTN got it exactly right. If you handload, play with overall length, should be shooting sub moa with that rig.

130 gr. Interbonds, Accubonds, Sciroccos. A ton of other bullets work as well, just find one that shoots good out of your gun and go kill stuff. The 130 gr Sierra Gameking is a good cheaper bullet that shoots good out of most 270s, and kills well.

I split the difference and go with 140s (Accubonds) provided the rifle will shoot them. I've got an older Winchester 70 lightweight that hates heavier bullets. It prefers 130s by a long shot.

I'd shoot what the gun shoots best. 110 grain Barnes, 130 grain IB, 130 grain Deep Curl, 140 grain Interlock, 130 grain NP.

One of my .270's likes 130 gr. IB's and the other one won't shoot a group under 2 inches. The other likes 130 gr. Gamekings.
