I'm still using up the 150grn Dad had left when he passed. I see no reason to go smaller.

Re: For all you .277 cal guys.

Actually Mike, there was a guy from Washington County....George Block, who used to write a lot of deer hunting stories in Game news....He once published a 270 load utilizing a Sierra 110 gr. Spire point and wrote several stories where he used this load for whitetails with very good results...Being the 270 "fan" that I am , I tried this load and shot several bucks with it, with devestating results, I might add...If not for the advent of the 130 gr. Nosler Ballistic Tip, I would probably still be using this 110 gr. bullet...It put deer right down.

Sure Ken, but we only talk "serious" hunting bullets here.

Re: For all you .277 cal guys.

I voted for 150 grain as that is what I shoot in my 270 Weatherby magnum.I recently got a Savage 110 in 270 winchester that I will probably try 130's in it though

Callin all trucks this here's the Duck, we about to go hunting bear!

Those 110 Gr. Sierras left baseball sized holes coming out Mike...I doubt you could get more serious...

Since I just got 400 140 gr Ballistic Tips need to vote this way. GF uses 130 Rem Accu-tips in hers for 1" at 100 yards.

Re: For all you .277 cal guys.

150 is the best bullet for bear,130 is too light for bear and 140 is borderline but would probably get the job done.
