  • A .270 for WAM! πŸ˜‰

    I may be behind the times, but this might just an old .300 Mangle'em shooter like WAM!

    It's parent case is the .404 Jeffery. Yikes! That otter hold a butt load of powder! ....and recoil! πŸ˜–

    Wasn't the .404 the parent case for the Ultra Mags a few years ago? There's not usually much under the sun that's new in the world of riflery

      Yes sir! It surely was! That's a lot of powder to burn at one trigger pull!
      WAM is always talking down the .270 and pushing his Wby mag. Thought he might like this one! LOL!

        Yep, it’s similar to what a 7mm Weatherby TTSX handload will do and burn a bunch more powder in the process.

          The .270 Weatherby would be more apples to apples.

          Another article gives a little different numbers comparing .277 cal chamberings.

          https://www.rmef.org/elk-network/27-nosler/

          Not mentioned in FB’s link (that I saw anyway) was the 1-8.5 twist rate of the 27 Nosler. More Creed trickledown, faster twist rate to use higher BC heavy for caliber bullets.

          Seems to me at some point β€œfast twist” and β€œheavy for caliber” will be the new normal and will be outdated terms.

          I’ll stick with the old .270 Win thanks.

            "... I’ll stick with the old .270 Win thanks. ..."

            Myself, well, the .277 bullet anyway.
            I haven't had the nerve to try the Ruger No.1 since the whole shoulder thing. Guess I'll just hang with the 6.8 AR until I get up the nerve.
            Doctor assured me if it pops out, only surgery will put it back. I'm just not ready to chance that yet!

            The Ruger is the heaviest .270 I have. I'm hoping light bullets and light loads may make it shootable.
