Are you talking about tactical or for hunting? It takes a hellova shot to make a 1,200 yard shot. Not many are that good. Also a .270 don't make for a good tactical round due to lack of good bullet selection for that purpose.

Heres a look at what I'm shooting for when I start loading for my .270:

JBM - Calculations - Trajectory
