Wrong.

I dumped a thick 160lb boar hog a month ago. The 130 PT went perfectly square thru the meat on both shoulders. Beautiful 1” hole in and out. Trimmed an extra half in around the hole and made tacos. Awesome bullet to say the least.
Shot was 75 yards with a full scoop of Reloder 22 in the .270win.

So a Partition is a form of C&C. Its more along the line of a Bonded bullet. So it retains more of it weight than say a Berger or Varmint Grenade. High Frag bullets, because they are so explosive, causes the most meat (internal) damage. Monometals IME make the least amount of bloodshot damage. That being said, again IME I shot an Elk at 218 using a 165gr Berger Hunter Hybrid (Federal 30-06 off the shelve box ammo .. I know I know roast me later) but that ammo is awesome. It entered her chest cavity (straight 12 o'clock shot) and exited her left shoulder. It actually blew out her shoulder and she DRT'd. There was very little blood shot meat and if I had to guess, the hardest thing that bullet hit was the shoulder from the inside going out. That was mostly isolated to bone.

YMMV

Not much to add except that if I had a 270 that only shot one bullet well, and it happened to be the 130 Partition, I'd count myself as very fortunate.

Wrong.

If I can kill a 200+# buck this year I will make sure and weigh how much the shoulders weigh before and after deboning. Bet I am.pretty damn close.

Before I quit shooting my 270 in favor of my 7X57, I always shot 130 grain Partitions. When I hit 'em in the chest, no problem with the 130 grain Partition. Hit 'em in the shoulder with a 130 grainer and you get blood shot meat. I'm shooting 160 grain Partitions in my 7X57 and so far, so good, but I haven't hit a shoulder.....yet.

Yep, depends on where one shoots them. In the ribs, not an issue, in the front shoulder, lots of bloodshot meat due to hydrostatic shock.


Just about any expanding bullet ruins even more meat if you shoot them in the rear shoulder....


That's why I always aim for the front hind quarter.


Now that is funny! laffin

I know you didnt ask but........

I've shot more than a few deer with the 270. About any 130 gr cup-core based bullet moving at 270 velocities is going to give some amount of bloodshot meat. In my mind 2 choices exist - monos or 150 grain bonded bullets of which I'd include the Partution even though it's not bonded. I've shot deer and elk with the 150 Partition and have seen a couple black bears handily dispatched with 150 NPT. In that rather limited sample set, I'd pontificate I've seen less bloodshot meat, 2 holes every time, and very short times between shot and animal down. It's likely my favorite 270 bullet. In fact, I'm doing load development now for a buddy of mine for elk season this year. I have ALOT of faith in the 150 NPT on ungulates at reasonable distances which with a 270 is beyond 500 yards with that combination. It's hard to beat a lightweight, accurate 270 with a 150 NPT.

I'm no Sitting Bull or Geronimo. I'm not a great tracker because I'm partially color blind and blood doesn't stand out to me. I'll gladly sacrifice a couple pounds of meat for a bang flop kill. I like most any 130 Grain Spitzer but my favorite is the SGK. It kills like lightning and I really haven't noticed much difference in blooded meat when I use them as opposed to other brands of bullets.

However, I'm talking Texas size whitetail deer here. If I ever get a chance to go after an Elk you all here have convinced me the Nosler 150 grain Partition is the ticket. I've never hunted Elk but I have been on Nilgai hunts. Nilgai I believe are similar in size. On those hunts I took my 9.3x62 and my 300 WBY But next time I'm thinking of taking my .270 with 150 grain Partitions.
