Now this is BS!!! That cartridge w/ a 123gr bullet has a window of 2300 to 2500fps with any powder. The ballistics are the same as the 6.5 Grendel as it is a clone.

Let me get my Google zen on and I'll post some BS!! You are a dangerous person.

Edit: I'm done w/ this BS. Your 1st 6 posts in 1 thread and I'm not impressed.

What would you guys think about a .300 Win Mag? Dont know much about it but seem like it would do pretty well for long range if set up correctly.

Man do these threads get old.

If everyone that claimed to shoot 600-1,000 yards with HALF the accuracy that is reported in these types of threads, there would be records falling left and right because the posters would be pushing the real evil genius, scientist types of the shooting ( the real benchrest guys ) to even higher heights.

To the OP - You are on a very good route. The .270 is a good cartridge and will do the job. The problem with the WSM and the WSSM rounds is that they do cause barrel wear much faster than normal, so factor that into the equation, especially if you are going to be buying a custom barrel at some point.

Unless you are just dying to get that money out of your pocket and towards a new stick of some sort, might I suggest a little reading.

Ultimare Sniper by Maj John Plaster (Ret.) is a great read and will teach you a ton about long distance shooting.

Extreme Rifle Accuracy by Mike Ratilin(Raitlin - something like that).

And a subscription to Premier Shooting Magazine.

Good luck and keep us posted on your results.

JD

I'm not trying to impress anyone. I've emailed Bill Alexander, and he has got back with me years ago. Plus tactical rifles,and they wanted my load data for 130 gr. VLD Burgers for the 6.5 grendal. I am a very safe loader, no pressure sighns, such as flat primers extraction marks. Primers still go in hard, no deadly ring of death. Were talking Lapua brass, i'm on my fifth loading with that brass. so do the math.... sorry if i offended you. Plus I would never B S. I do my research and start out low .

Great round. Punishing to shoot unless you have a heavier stick and a nice recoil pad.

Will definitely reach 1,000 without any problems, but it will also definitely get the attention of the shooter's lined up next to you in the worst way.

Any of those large caliber magnum rounds are going to be about the same. They will do the job, if you want to sit behind the stick.

When I had my 7mm built, I spec'd it heavy for a reason. Recoil is nice and smooth and I don't feel like I took a right from a heavyweight.
