The chart that Berger Tech Team sent me didn't "copy and paste" very well, but I think you'll be able to figure it out. This is brand new data on their brand new bullet, P/N 27575. G7 BC = .339; G1 BC = .662; optimal twist rate = 1:8

I sure hope barrel makers get on this quick! Meaning build a 1:8 twist .277" to stabilize this bullet. The cartridge with this bullet will be impressive. As I've said for years, the 270 is lacking in the BC department, and that's all. This corrects that. All the guys out there with plenty of .270 brass saved up will be in great shape if they choose to rebarrel.

Also interesting to see 270 load work up done in a 26" barrel only seen that a time or two. Seems to make pretty decent velocity, and you could maybe push it a little harder than they are.

Im assuming h1000 and the like is too slow? or would there potentially be some other powders out there that may perform a little better? Ive thought about rebarelling mine before... although if I go through that it will likely become a 280 AI.

H1000 would work well if you can get enough in the case. The new IMR 7977 should also be a good one.

I thought H-4831 was the ticket for .270 ?

If someone gets a 1:8" 270 barrel, buzz me for a GREAT price on load work up, since I want to shoot this bullet.

I've tried H4831, and could not get near the speeds as with 4350. With the heavy 170 grain 270 bullet, I'd lean towards H1000 or 7977 also. Seat the bullet out long touching the lands, and go to the range.

I don't have a chronograph, but 4350 has always been my powder of choice for 270 as well.

Right up my alley. Liking this idea so far.

How many people are going to have, or order, a barrel suitable for this bullet chambered for .270 Winchester?

I would imagine most people willing to do this will have a larger case in mind.

My problem is I am already building a rifle to shoot the new 7mm 195 Hybrid's (300 Win Mag necked down to 7mm). So, as much as I love the 270, I don't see playing with this bullet much. But I'd like to try it in someone's rifle for sure!

I also agree.

It is exciting to have more options, though, and I love to see the BC envelope pushed.
