PS that load has worked on coyotes to elk. Like I said coyotes look awful when you retrieve them but skin and then wash anyway. That big mess ends up being a tear you can sew. Have heard of jacket bullet separation with those bullets but never had that problem myself

I never shoot factory ammo but I have a box of nosler patition 160 grain I bought years ago. Uncle was telling me 130 was to light for elk. They don't shoot near as flat and not as accurate as 130 so never shot anything with them. i suspect they will work as i like partitions. uncle was wrong about 130 on Elk though he would never admit it. he was a 30-06 club fan. seen lots of 150 grain grain factory ammo for sale.

Walmart had 130 and 140 grain in a few brands. These were 24 plus tax per box. I figured with shape our country is in i better buy a few ...also figured with injured arm I would try the lighter.[Linked Image]

270 for deer and antelope within 300 or 400 hundred yds any decent bullet will get the job done. Bullet isn't to big of a deal on those lighter animals at moderate ranges. Remington core lok or Norma whitetail will be adequate and are reasonably priced.

Hornady, 130 gr Interlock bullet (not SST)

A 130 gr Barnes copper solid will easily take an elk DRT if the shooter does their part properly.

What Danny said re: 130 gr Gamekings. I also shoot 140gr Accubonds. 130 ABs would work too but I wanted a slightly longer bullet. As far as what appears to be availabIe presently from Sierra and Nosler, it is 130 ABs and 140 Tipped GKs.

130 grain Winchester silvertips. Been shooting whitetails with it for 20 years. They don't go far when hit properly.

That was me. Itís still going strong. I personally load a 110gr Barnes TSX load for a light recoil load for a friends wife. It does the number on deer

I am a big fan of the jacketed hollow point stuff in the box you photographed. For my .257 Robert's and now .25-06, the 119 grain jacketed soft points plant even the biggest Kansas deer even if they had been running full out. I cannot imagine a 140 grain out of the .270 performing much differently. Ethical shots should be as easy as hitting where you aimed WRR.
