130's over 140's if I was not building a 260 for 120's. I would like Nosler to bring out a 150gr Accubond; they have the heavyweights in .284 and .308 so I think it would be a win especially in the WSM.

.277 140 @ .496

.284 160 @ .531

.308 200 @ .588

I wish Nosler would bring out a 150 AB in both .277 and .284 calibers.

For factory ammo, 140gr AB's or 150 XP3's from Winchester Supreme or the Federal in the 140 AB's / TSX's.


What powder are you using in your .270 WSM?

What are you thumping with the 270 wsm though? Is it a deer, elk, or something else?

I would go with a 130 for deer and the heavier for anything bigger.

dingo,

Nice pigs! Just curious, you said you have had quite a few failures with 130 gr. bullets. Does that include the 130 Accubond? Just curious if it failed too or if it was other 130's that didn't work so well.

130gn SST's were the bullets that failed. I haven't tried 130gn Accubonds,I'm sure they will work OK,I just prefer a heavier bullet on pigs because they are often covered in thick mud. When it comes to penetrating a boars mud caked hide I dont think a fast stepping 130gn bullet works as well as a slighter slower 140gn pill.

I shot only 140 NAB's out of my 270 wsm and it was good to go all around. Killed a few critters and never wanted more for the rifle/bullet.

Retumbo....one of my Tikka T3 LS 270WSM rifles likes 69.0 or 69.5gr the other prefers a Compressed Load of 71.0gr. Federal 215 primers. I get great groupings.

Had other powders to try but was happy with Retumbo (H1000/7828SSC/WS780/MagPro). A hunting buddy bought a T3 in the camo model 270WSM a couple years ago..we went to the range with my 69.0gr reloads to sight in his rifle....and it shot identical to mine...under 0.5" groups at 100m.

My wsm loved H4831sc with the 140's. A stout load would produce 3250 FPS and TREMENDOUS accuracy.
