When you start to reload,

When you start to reload, those Remington corelokt bullets aren't a bad choice. A buddy shot a 350+ lb hog a couple of weeks ago and the corelokts really surprise me on their performance.

But I'm a Nosler man to the core. We reload the 130 Accubonds in the 270's we shoot. They perform just as good as the partitions. Like you said, "dead is dead." So what ever shoots best in your rifle is what I would go with. Good luck.

cool deal. thanks for the info. I've heard pretty good things about the Accubonds as well. So once I burn through the factory ammo I have left, that's most likely what's going in.

Another good bullet choice

Another good bullet choice for the 270 are the Sierra gamekings. They're devestating on deer and usually shoot good groups. I'll check to see what load we're shooting and get back to you.

I use the sierra game kings

I use the sierra game kings 130 grain in my .270 and have taken lots of different game with them.  One thing to keep in mind is to save your brass from your factory ammo and you can use it to reload.  probably already knew that, but i thought I'd mention it just in case.

I buy my bullets from Midway

I buy my bullets from Midway USA.  They have a great selection, reasonable prices and super fast delivery.  It takes me well over a week, sometimes two weeks to get some things from Cabela's and I get things the next day, two at the most from Midway.

I don't buy powder from them because you pay extra shipping charges.  it is the same with everyone so you'll need to find a local place to buy your powder.

Their website is

Their website is www.midwayusa.com  As good as a company as they are their website is substandard.  It is functional, but it requires too many clicks to get where you want.  They have categories that you select and then instead of just goiing where you want, they have unnecessary subcategories that just are cumbersome.

Totally the same feelings I have. Too much navigation to get to the products you want to view.

If you run into anyone who reloads, get with them to see when they need more powder. The two of you, or more if you can find, can split the hazardous shippimg fees.

One other option is the huge gun shows they have at Raleigh and Greensboro during the summer. Usually you can buy powder by the 8 lb kegs to save money.

But he's right about Midway, great company but congested website. Somebody call Larry and tell him about his website.

Once you find a bullet that

Once you find a bullet that you like and want to use just search the internet.  There are all kinds of sales out there every day and if you take a little time you can find some great deals.  Midway does have some great buys and do ship fairly quickly but there are other suppliers out there including the original manufacture possibly.  I know that since I have switched a lot of my bullets to Barnes that I can buy them from the factory cheaper than most other sites, and then I also go past their manufacturing/showroom site a couple of times a year witch helps a lot if I stop in.
