remington 115gr fmj in 270 win

Registered Users do not see the above ad.

Anyone tried loading the remington .277 dia. 115gr fmj bullets that they manufacture for the 6.8spc cartridge in the 270 winchester? Anyone see anything wrong with it for plinking, other than lack of load data? Thanks

Don't see why it would be any different than using the Hornady 115 grain BTHP, or the Sierra 115 grain MatchKing. That's proportional to shooting a 127 grain bullet in a .30 caliber. Just lean toward faster powders than are usual for the heavier weights. I'm thinking IMR 4064 would fill the case well and do the velocity justice.

That is what I was thinking, thanks UncleNick.
