.270, 110 Grain Bullet

Does anyone have any first hand experience with 110 grain bullets out of a .270 for whitetail?

Re: .270, 110 Grain Bullet

If they are the right bullet type they should take a whitetail. I have taken several with a 100 grain 243. However group them. 270's often prefer a 130 grain for accuracy, but every gun is different. If they don't shoot up to par the price of ammunition is small compared the the cost of everything else.

A 110gr Barnes TSX is a wicked whitetail bullet

Our forefathers didn't bury their guns. They buried those that tried to take them.

The 110gr TSX is what I was thinking about trying.

If they shoot well out of your gun I don't see any reason they wouldn't work. TSX are some nice bullets.

I don't know what a 110 grain could do that a good 130 could not do better? A 130 would certainly have less drop at long range making those long shots easier and the 130 kills the 110 in SD. The question then becomes why just like with the .30 125 grain? I also don't care if they do blow big holes in 120 pound deer. What do they do in the case of a 220 pound deer? Now that's what I'm talking about.

Sort of agree with Moose. The TSX is not a good deer bullet, if you are handloading most any other bullet would be a better deer choice. the all copper bullet expand very eradic, especially on smaller game like whitetail. A 130 grain Cor-lok would be significantly better.

Have fun cleaning that barrel.
