    Think my plan is going to be to load some 150gr AB's for close range bush work this roar and 150gr BT's for any longer shots (>100m)

    Think this should work well with luck.

    Thanks for the help so far chaps!
    From my experience the ABs go best at full speed (ie >3000fps MV) even at close range. I think the BTs would be the go at 2860.

    Hmmm interesting to hear, you had bad experiences with sub 3000MV?

    Rule 4. Identify your target beyond all doubt.

    Not so much bad, but they don't seem to kill anywhere near as quick once they slow down a bit.
    I have used the 30 cal 125s in my 308 at close on 3000fps and 165gn 30cal in my 300wm at 3200fps and I noticed as the range extended (>150 yards for the 308 and >300 yards for the 300wm) the animals didn't drop as fast. Still killed them (reds and sika mostly) but they did tend to travel father than I liked with what was a good chest shot.
    Personally, if launching them at 2860 I would stick to the BTs (which I use in my 7mmRM and have a lot of faith in).

    No longer a 270 owner @Gibo but did use the 140gn Abs in it when I had it (@3000fps). They were my favourite.
