I have a new Rem 700 in 270 wsm and am planning to shoot 140 gr Nosler Accubond bullets over Imr 4350 Powder.Any load data on this load will be appreciated.

The rifle shot a 1.3" group followed by a .8" group right out of the box with Winchester Supreme 130 balistic silvertips.

Can't help you on load data for 270 WSM. Curious, is it a factory rifle or custom re-barrel? I guess what I'm asking is Remington now chambering Model 700's in WSM cartridges? I know for a while there they were pushing their own line of short mags.

I have a Brownig A-Bolt 270 WSM and It has become my favorite gun I killed an Elk and two deer with it. I tried about a dozen hand loads and my best shoots about 1/2". It is Winchester Brass, Federal Large Rifle Magnum match primer, 70 grains of H1000, and 140 grain Barnes Triple Shock. It will shoot other bullets well but after developing a load with a Sand pile as a backstop I dug out some of the bullets and Barnes were by far the best mass. I shot my Elk through one rib, shattering it than through lungs and through a rib on the opposite side, and the bullet was resting aginst the hide. The elk dropped like a rock and never even flinched. The recovered bullet and it weighed 138.1 grains. BTW this load shoots at 3190 average fps. you will absolutely love this cartriidge. let me warn you though dont buy a wssm they suck I bought a 243wssm because of the 270 and it sucks when I went to trade it, for a two month old $650. A-bolt they wanted to give me $300. for it. god luck

Thanks for the load.I may give it a try although Barnes Bullets have put several gray hairs in my head over the years.

I have worked up my load with the Nosler Accubond.

I used Remington brass trimmed to 2.088", Federal 215 primer, 140 gr Nosler Accubond bullet and 62 gr of IMR 4350 powder with OAL of 2.860".

Load chrono's 3220 and shoots 1/2" groups

Sounds like a really great load! How long is the barrel on your rifle?

Yes I believe it will be a good load.

The rifle has a 24 inch barrel.

I shot a 200 lb Whitetail Buck with it this morning from about 150 yards. The bullet entered the front shoulder and went all the way through exiting the far shoulder.Massive internal bleeding and he was dead in 2 steps.

I have to admit I like the ballistics of the .270 WSM. This cartridge will probably become quite popular as I've never heard a bad report.

Interestingly the WSSM cartridges seem to have problems.

At first glance, I didn't see what all the noise was about, but the .270 WSM made me a believer. You may want to take a look at the guys that specialize in these: Short Mags.. I picked up a Ruger MKII All Weather in .270 WSM earlier this year, and was very impressed with the cartridge. If only one of these new short mag. cartridges last, it should be the .270 WSM.
I've been eyeing a Browning Hunter in .325 WSM. The ballistics are quite impressive. Equal to the .338 Win. Mag., yet with much less powder and recoil. It can keep time with the .270 WSM and 7mm Rem. Mag. at long distance shooting, and do it with a 200gr. or 225gr. bullet.

I have a .270 WSM that shoots good groups with factory ammo but I have not yet reloaded any yet.

Big Blue,

Where in Eastern PA are you, because I am going to be hunting in Pike County this rifle season and am debating on using a .30-06, that just seems to be cursed or the .270 WSM that I have not tried to hunt with yet.

Adam,
I'll be hunting along the AT at the southern end of Monroe Co. and northern end of Northampton Co. I live just south of the AT in Lehigh Township. Personally, I'm going with the Rem. 721 in 30-06 that I picked up this past summer.

Well this must be a lucky gun...Just killed my second buck of the year, a 200 lb 10 pointer.

Shot him at 250 yards and he never moved...dead in his tracks.

This Nosler Accubond bullet is awsome!!!!

Just a footnote: The last 50+ Whitetails I have killed were one shot kills with the Nosler 140 Grain Ballistic Tip bullet. The only problem a lot of them had to be tracked and were not killed in their tracks so to speak.

In years past when I hunted with the old 30-06 and 180 grain bullets I shot all my deer through the ball joint of the front shoulder. Fellow shooters if you shoot your deer through the front shoulders you take away his running gear. No tracking just go load him up. With the Ballistic tip if the buck was inside 150 yards the bullet might explode on the surface leading to a long tracking job so I started shooting the heart and lungs.

Now I will just shoot his running gear out and go load him up.
