    Are you hunting whitetails and other bigger game or just predators and such? Also moving up might shorten your shooting range a little too.

    this is for my deer rifle. we have hogs and other things but whitetail mostly.
    i figure 130 is fine but wouldnt 150 give just that much more knock down?
    would it still shoot as flat at 200 yrds 250 max...???

    I shoot deer with 130s. I have shot them with both and they both perform real well. 130s are a hair flatter.

    I have shot both the 130's and 150's from my remington 700 BDL. the both seem to perform well. Just from what I've read and seen on ballistic charts, the heavier bullet carries a bit more energy. If you look at a chart on some highpower rounds the heavier bullet shoots flatter than the lighter bullet. Not for sure but I think its cause the heavier of the two carrys more energy, the lighter bullet does shoot faster but it will drop out quicker due to the lack of less energy. But if your not shooting no more than 200 yards, then thats no big deal. If you were shootin out to 400 yards then I say go with the 150's for sure. As far as 250yrd max for the 270, that caliber is an easy 400+ yrd round. 250 yrd is a chip shot. Its all personal preference tho, do you want fps or do you want knockdown(energy)

    Our resident gun doc is out of town till tomorrow but I'll ask him about this. He uses several different riffles and does a lot of long range shooting and will know about this

    I shoot 180 gn round nose out of my Rem 700 BDL and they shoot awesome for a heavy bullet i only shoot it out to 150 200 yrds. might be a little to heave for long long dist. shooting though.

    now im not talking long range shooting, really...
    just wondering if yall thought one might need a little more power than what the 130 gr. bullets give ya.
    but the .270 part will not change... nothing better for whitetails

    For whitetail, there is no need to shoot the heavier bullet. Even mature whitetails are soft sided animals. You will have no problem with energy or penetration from a 130 gr slug. If shooting a bigger animal, Canadian Whitetail, Elk, I would use a heavier slug to gain the mass weight and energy in that case

    A 270 with a 130gr bullet is THE load for whitetails. A 150gr bullet has a higher ballistic coefficient and will carry very well and retain its energy out farther. At 500 yards, the 130gr pill will be about 4 inches flatter and the 150 graner will have a little over 100 ft/lbs of energy. So what does this mean? A whole lot of nothing, in real world hunting you and the deer will never notice a difference in performance. You might notice a difference in recoil though, because the heavier bullet will kick more. If the 130's group well in your gun, I sure wouldn't mess with it!

    The .270 was made for the 130 gr bullet, I have shot everything in NA with a .270 and 130 gr bullets except my big bears and that includes Moose and Muskox. Stay with it.
