Anyone use this bullet on game? I have a Tikka 270 Win here that loves 110 grain bullets and 4064. Curious how the 110 Accu Bond performs on game.

Speculation on my part, but it ought to be ideal for whitetails. I have used the 110 grain TTSX out of a 270 WSM and the deer noticed immediately whenever I hit them with one.

Try 57gr of H-4831 behind the 140 AB's
A little less "spectacular" on the entrance, and deeper penetration for non-broadside shots.

Ought to work fine but I would either check with Nosler or shoot some in a test medium to confirm it was not designed for the 6.8 SPC or a lower velocity cartridge. I can't imagine it is as a premium is not needed in that cartridge and due to popularity or lack of the demand would be almost nil. Used 120s extensively in the 7RM and they were a lightning bolt this side of 400 yards. Energy, drop and wind deflection make them less than ideal farther out than 400 or so. Used some older factory 120s in the 270 and they were absolute bombs the Accubond should not have that problem.

110 TTSX is a good option.

Kinda old school here. Hit the local gunshow this week end and got a deal on 130 & 150 gr Speer Grand Slams,150 solid base Nosler and 130 gr Remington bronze points about 1200 bullets for $126. The solid base Noslers do have a .513 bc and most of my 270 use is under 400 yds anyway. I like inexpensive, more for less myself but you all do it anyway you want. MB

I have shot a couple of deer with 110 ABs from a .257 AI at a little over 3,000 fps. In both, the entry wound was just behind the shoulder in the heart/lung cavity, and no bones were hit. Both deer died, one after a bit of a run. However, neither bullet exited, if that is important to you.

Did they stay intact? My daughter used the 100 BT on a small buck, at very close range, in her 257 Bob and it did exit. Right behind the shoulder, insides were mush, and it only ran about 10 yards and piled up.

Ok. This is what I was thinking. It must have been designed for the 6.8. I was just curious if anyone here had whistled one into a critter at say, 3,400 fps. The 110 TTSX is shooting under 1/2". Which is all the bullet one can ask for at that weight. Might be prudent to let the little A.B. alone.

Even bigger Accubonds leave grapefruit sized entrance wounds when impacting at 3400 fps.

I've been using the 130g .277" NAB in my .270 WSM and I'm getting 0.5-0.75" groups at just over 3300fps and good on game performance at 300-400yds. Haven't shot anything inside 300 with it yet.
However, the the .284" 140g NAB out of my .280 performed really well on a 180# deer at 50yds. Deer was quartered to me. Bullet entered high just in front of right shoulder and exited low just ahead of the diaphragm on left side. Deer collapsed on the spot.

This is a surprise to me as the 25 - 115 BT almost always exit on deer if no major bones are hit and even them it may still exit. John Barseness has written about a Nosler employee that thought he could increase productivity by eliminating a few steps such as bonding. I wonder how many bullets that guy made?

The 110 TTSX would be a buzz saw.

Magnum Bob: Good score and the 270 works great with all the old school bullets. I would go easy on the Bronze points, Jack O'Conner liked them but my experience is they are like the original Ballistic tips and can turn in to a grenade especially if bone is hit. If you slipped it between the ribs then I am sure it would produce quick kills.

I had the same happen a few times and gave up on that bullet for that reason.

Tejano this parallels my experience also with 30 cal BPts in the 308 and 30-06 but they sure shoot nice groups, at 10 cents a piece I just didn't figure I could go wrong. I experienced the same with 130 gr and 150 gr early BT's in the 270. MB

pretty sure the 110 gr was designed for the 6.8...at any rate I have killed several whitetails with them oughta a 6.8 pistol length barrel at 2500 fps muzzle.........they work well at that speed

Otter6, I shoot 110g Hornady hp, V max, Sierra, and ttsx.

Amazing, they all shoot to the same point of impact, very accurate bullets for a 270.

Realize that this is a short range bullet, 350 yards or so.

I shoot varmints, deer, and hogs.

Deer flop with the 110g ttsx, and I mean flop.

Several loads that work in a Ruger 77 All weather and Rem 700

55g of AA2700, CCI 200 primer, 3300 fps

58g of Win 760, 9 1/2-3400 fps

56-58g of R#17 with a fed 215-3375 fps

All of these group 1/2" or less

Work up to these loads in your rifle

Buddy shoots H4350 with win primersat 3300+

JUmp ttsx .050 from the lands, done

All others I seat .008 off the lands

Avoid Federal brass if you want long brass life

V max's turn a coyote inside out, literally, so does the Sierra 90g HP with IMR 3031.

I have killed large 200 lb bucks out to 325 with a one shot DRT kill with the TTSX, shot through the shoulders. I sight in at 200 and aim at the top of their shoulders at 300 with a bang flop. 110g Sierras work very well with the exception of shoulder shots at 50 yards and less, they are tougher than you would think with pass through on lung shots 100 percent of the time. Lung shots = running deer, so get over it.

I killed a meat buck standing behind a 6 " pine tree with the ttsx, and he died on the spot.

Keith-how did that 760 load do in colder temps for you? I have had some 760 loads in some other calibers lose some speed down around 20 deg, but my zero never changed. I am just now beginning to load for this "new to me" .270 and so far the Sierra 110 shows promise. I figure I would find a good load for it and then workup to it with the 110 TTSX. I have shot a lot of game with 25-06, 240W so 90-110gr at 3500 has been worked super for me in the past. I figure even a good, solid 3300 will shoot super flat in the .270! smile

The 110 TTSX is a definite sweet heart in my Tikka.

Old school 130 Grand Slam here. If there is anything wrong with these old bullets, I'd like to know what it is. Fired with 55 grain of I 4350 into milk jugs at 109 yards.
