    It wouldn't be much fun if we all stuck to the same calibers would it? There would be no banter then about who's caliber is the best, would there. The 270 win isn't everyone's cup of tea but then nor are the various 6.5's or 30 cals.
    As for that equally useless 30 cal load Stevedog I wouldn't want to be on the receiving end of it that's for sure.
    I think we all get a bit hung up on high BC's as when you look at the ballistic charts the difference between a BC of say .625 compared with .552 in 30 cal only equates to small amount of extra dial up out to reasonable ranges.

    Now if the projectile companies would get their act together and make the likes of the 170gr VLD more readily available, you smug 7mm fanboys would be in all sorts of trouble...

    Would your standard 270 twist stabilise a 170 vld?

    My Sako is a 1:10, Berger states that optimum twist for them is 1:8, would like to try them anyhow and I would be interested in rebarelling the T3 I have here to suit them if I could get a decent supply of them...

    Where did you get the load info from for that powder in the .270?

    They still do and for good reason, they work.

    Shit! That's good speeds for those pills. I think I may have to change some things up in the future

    +1...I'm happy with my current load but this combo looks like 'next level'

    Wonder if this powder would work in the wsm? Currently can get 3180fps using 2225 and 150VLD pretty comfortably although buttoned off to 3100 for accuracy.

    That looks like hard load to improve on Ryan. I was wondering why you were lamenting the unavailability of the 170gr...makes sense with a wsm. Could you source a mother lode (2000+) of these? Then you could get your fast twist barrel. Probably still shoot the 150s ok.

    I'm nearly out of 2213sc power maybe 30 or 40 rounds worth left in the tin. The old saying if it ain't broken don't fix it, but in I'm quite keen on trying the superperformance out with Nosler 150gr LRABs if its not temperature sensitive.

    From what I have been told it is temperature sensitive. Also the load data I used was derived from the At 2213 SC load. Superformance is rated one slower burn rate than 2213 SC so if you load as for 2213 SC you should be fine. As with any reloading it pays to work up to max loads.
    Superformance should work fine in any caliber that uses 2213 SC but just be aware that summer temperatures may rise your pressures. Should work well in 270WSM.
