    frangible .270

    In an earlier post , i spoke about helping a mate with some reloading for his 270 . Now I am looking for a recommendation of a 270 pill that would be recognised as of a frangible design . He,s not one for believing that a single hole is better than two . So, his perfect round causes a hole , partially breaks up some what , bits of the projectile cause more damage and best of all sometimes causes bleeding out boths sides of the animal , killing it really quickly .
    So he is after a frangible projectile ( i think ? ) cause this sounds like something Nathan Foster has described in terminal research discussions .
    what are people thinking as to what maker of 270 projectiles has a frangible design ?
    cheers

    speer spbt definitely in the softest bracket....
    the 145grn eld m is a SST with slimmed down design so is almost there...
    you cannot go wrong with a NBT is 130grn...just take out the front wheels....
    infact that is pretty much the trick to getting best out of a .270w in my opinion...take out the front wheels and the animal will drop very quickly.
    for small light animals when meat recovery isnt priority the 110grn hornady HP is devistating but will not penertrate ,it will blow up on surface of anything solid,awesome on wallabies and leaves a hole similar in size n shape to a 1litre coke bottle.... very very messy DO NOT use this on deer sized game unless close and can gaurantee a headshot and be prepared to follow up.

    the new deer season round looks to be a very fast expanding design...... worth a crack if want factory fodder.

    My thoughts of using a frangible type bullet wouldn’t end well.
    The bullet will blow up on contact, much like it is designed to do.

    its all about picking your shots,and picking correct projectile type for target species.... no different to any other calibre yet the humble .270w gets a bad rep for ruining meat one week as bullets have blown up,then fella goes to a harder projectile and gets bad rep again as he didnt hit bone and it zips right through leaving pinhole wounding....

    For many years I used Winny Powerpoints driven fast as a first pick for deer and pigs, but I have found that Accubonds are much better. They open fast but being bonded hold together and pass right through. Animals dont go far with air blowing in one side and out the other. A lot of times the animal will move after the shot but will be easily found with a lot of gravy to follow. Animals are never lost, even with a poorly placed shot, a hit is confirmed by a good amount of blood at the impact site and meat damage is minimal - measured at about 3-4 litres with a 270. SSt projectiles will give you 10 ltrs of bruised trim and more lost animals. If venison is valued at $10 kg, a soft pill is costing you $60 in lost meat.
    Relative to everything else quality bullets are cheap and well worth the extra $0.60 more than a non- bonded job no matter which way the numbers get spun

    I agree with @MoaHunter on the effectiveness of the Accubonds. I have used the 130gr exclusively in my 270 for the last 12 odd years and they have always performed (Shots range from 15-350yds). Animals almost always drop on the spot with a shot through the front wheels/engine room, and the couple that havenít only take a step or two before dropping. The shoot bloody accurate through my rifle too, which helps (using AR 2209)

    Another one I have used a bit is the 130gr Gamekings. They are another reliable performer and typically easy to get to shoot accurate, and would be by replacement to the ABs if I run out of stock of them.

    Would also recommend against the 130gr SST, they make a mess of meat and not suited to shorter range shots from my experience

    indeed it is...Ive shot many animals with them over the years and never found them lacking at all. take out them front wheels and your freezer will stay full.

    the 150grn powerpoints on other hand.........very tidy on deer indeed,nice blood trail and not huge amount of mess....good for a factory option for bush hunting or sub 200 yard deer....

    nobody has ever said they not accurate,or do not kill stuff very very well...pricey yes...not the most slippery high BC design yes.....but they just plain old work,wel lthe 150grn ones surely do,in spades.
