Stuff is on the way!
I ordered a lee press kit, micrometer, dies, winchester brass, and a caliber specific reloading manual for my .270. I am really excited about reloading. We have 3 270s in my family ( my two younger sons - 12 and soon to be 15 and myself ). We are shooting 2 Savage 111's and 1 Marlin XL7. I do not have a lot of money to invest 3 different powders, 3 different bullets, primers etc. I am going to try to work up a load that our guns will be able to shoot effectively ( not tournament shooting... just effectively ). Is there a "basic" load for PA deer - I do not have many shots over 150 yards - that you would try first to meet our needs? I was thinking Sierra Pro Hunter 130 grain bullets with H4831sc powder - how many grains? I don't have my book yet, with CCI 200LR primers. Thanks for your help. Any knowledge to pass on would be helpful. I already read the posts about .270 loads in this forum which were helpful. Triple B
