    More 270 Win Loads

    Picked up some new projectiles the other day for my 270 Win. I decided to give the 145 gr ELD-X a go as they have a good BC and by all accounts they are pretty good on game.
    In my Tikka using ADI powder (AR 2213 SC) I have only been able to get around 2800 fps with the 150 gr Partition bullet so I decided to give Superformance powder a go as it's meant to deliver up to 200 fps more on what other powders can do. I have been told that some rifles don't like it and accuracy suffers. ( Can only but try it )
    Anyway I loaded up some rounds with 57grs of Superformance and the 145 gr ELD-X with CCI 200 primers (COAL 83.5mm) to fit the Tikka Magazine.
    Took them out today and set up a target at 100 yards and zeroed the scope about 1.6 inches high for about a 200 yard zero ( scope isn't a dial up model )
    I Chrono graphed the loads as I adjusted the scope and once right shot a 3 shot group. I couldn't believe it the three shots were pretty much one hole at 100yards, the speed these bullets were travelling at are the fastest I have ever seen in any of my 270's and averaged 3114 fps. This load I consider max for my rifle so work up to this load. As can be seen I have increased muzzle velocity by 300 odd fps and accuracy is exceptional. ( 5mm group center to center)
    This will be my go to load for a while now I would think.Name:  P1030009.jpg

    That's a fantastic result. You can't knock the 270win with that type of performance. Makes these trendy 6.5's look positively anaemic.
    Go the 270 (and the Tikka).

    Is that $85 for a bottle of powder fark me! Cant wait for the sika show to buy gear at realistic prices. Although who gives a flying fark when you get groups like that. Nice to see a real man achieving results with a mans calibre like the mighty .270

    Nice work. I also had similar results with superformance in my .270 on the weekend. 3150 fps with 140gn nosler bt.
    Good news for all .270 reloaders.

    Yes it was your results Grubby that prompted me to try Superformance and the ELD-X is the flavor of the month at the moment for me, just need a few deer to make a mistake and I can see how they work on game.
    Currently running 178 gr ELD-X in my Tikka 300 Win Mag too. Last weekend put two shot into a bread and butter size target at 500 yards so they shoot well just need the live tissue test, maybe this weekend if it ain't to wet. Will post any results as they happen.

    That powder must be awesome, I never got above 2850 fps using 140's with the likes of 2213sc.

    Great result.

    Yes gibo, it's a wonder he can hit anything with a bc of less than .6. I recommend the man give up on that equally useless 30cal load as well.
