Picked up a 270 w a 26” custom barrel. Have 130 grain bullets on hand. What would be your powder of choice for 270 with 130gr. pills?

Rhetorical question?

H-1000 also works very well

Whatever you've got in the burn rate range of 4350 to 4831.


Now with even more aplomb

I played with several powders a few years ago but nothing beat H4831 for accuracy and velocity.
Your rifle may tell you different.


I am continually astounded at how quickly people make up their minds on little evidence or none at all.

H1000 is slow for 130s in my experience.

Anything from 4064 to 4831 burn rates works. That gives you a lot of options in this powder limited world were in now. I like to keep my velocities around 3000 fps for cup and core bullets.

Now if you can find it, stuff a case with RL26 over a bonded bullet and you’ve got a 3300 fps laser.

It's hard to beat 4350 of any stamp, but my best results accuracy wise have been with IMR4350.

IMR 4350, any regular primer and any 130 bullet of your choice.


The lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part!

If there is such a thing, the .270 standard load has always been 4831.

64 grains H-1000 with his 26" barrel will move out for sure

Easy answer, H4831 if for some odd reason that doesn't work try H/IMR 4350 if that doesn't work sell the rifle.

I wish I could find R26, my 6.5-06 loves that powder as well.

I actually bought the rifle to rebore to a 338-06. I think I may be making a terrible mistake to “Shoot the donor”. If it drives tacks, I’ll be in a real quandary.

A couple of loads I tried in my 700 BDL. I can't believe that I forgot to note number of grains of H1000 and which primer. Grrr.


270 Remington 700 BDL 131 grain E-tip CCI 200 56.5 Grains, H4831sc 0.75 MOA
270 Remington 700 BDL 130 TTSX Barnes ? Grains H1000 0.75 MOA

The best groups I have had with my 270 so far (two groups averaged):

270 Remington 700 BDL 160 Partition 9 ½, 53.5 grains RE 19, 0.44 MOA

Depends what you're doing. For a pleasant range toy, I use 42 grains of h4895 and a 130. Low recoil and good accuracy. Filled my tag with it last year too.
