View Full Version : another 270 question

10-27-2008, 04:28 PM
Since I am going to go shoot the new scope in this weekend (max 200 yards but I am looking towards the 500+ yard future) I was wondering. When shooting long range for accuracy and meat is it better to go with a heavier bullet, or a lighter bullet?

IE 130 grain, 140 grain, or 150 grain Ballistic Tip for the 270 winchester.

for long range you are better off with a heavy for caliber high BC bullet your rifle will shoot well. Just by doing this you have cut your drop some, and your wind drift by as much as 30%. at 270 velocities there should be a noticable difference between the 130 weight and the heavier ones.
