Ammo recommendation for a 270 Win.

I recently purchased a Sako 85 finnlite in 270 win. for a sheep hunt in Aug topped with a Leupold in 4.5-14 X 40MM. I just started to break in the barrel using Rem 130 gr. core lokts PSP. So far I have approx. 25 shots down the tube. I've been concentrating more on shooting and cleaning but so far not seeing any promise with groups with the Remingtons. I'm wondering if anyone else might have a similar setup and what shoots well before I start buying a lot of different brands of ammo. Thanks!

Re: Ammo recommendation for a 270 Win.

My gf's Savage just loves the Federals in the Blue box. May be cheap ammo but will shoot under 1" all day at 100 yards. Also likes Rem Accutips over 54 gr of H4350.

My Savage shoot's the cheap Federal 130 gr the best also Under 1" groups

Remington, Winchester and Hornady all had less than desirable results.

That's why it makes sense to try them all out and see which one your gun likes.

Rem 130 gr. core lokts PSP's work the best in my 1960 vintage rem 760 270. and they are the cheapest you can find. MOA all day and drop deer like a sledge hammer.

Also why it makes sense to reload...Factory ammo is notorious for not living up to quoted velocities...Always low....By hand-loading you have the luxury of full power plus tailor made accuracy. My last 130gr. Remington factory load was bought some thirty years ago.
