Remington still lists a 100 gr load that should be a real zapper. Might be a bit destructive if you're saving hides though. If less damage is desired, the 115 gr "managed recoil" load should be the ticket.

I'm just curious why you're seeking a lighter, faster bullet? Are you looking for better ballistics? Or less destructive on the fur?

The lightest factory load available I'm aware of is the 100 grn Rem PSP with a claimed MV of 3320 fps. But keep in mind the BC of it is a mere .252 as compared to .447 for the 130 Accutip. So even though the 100 grain is 300 fps faster, they have identical ballistics. I know some who use their normal deer loads for coyote (my dads one) . Many of the tougher bullets don't expand well on them and are much easier on the fur than the 270 varmint bullets. I'd say if you're not looking at saving furs, use the load you are for deer. If you are, I'd look into a 130 grn tough bullet that won't expand much on them. Also, FYI, Hornady does have a 130 grn light mag round that has a claimed muzzle velocity of 3200+ fps.

My suggestion would be to shoot the accu-tip. Fur damage from anything you shoot in the 270 is going to be massive anyway and shooting the same bullet you hunt with is much better practice for the big game season.

Besides as M1 says the 130's with much better drop figures holds up well once past 300 yards.

Back in 1952 when I got a Win Mdl 70 270 Win I used the old 270 too shoot any thing on the pasture and farm land where I lived. I worked up a 100 Gr load for varmints,prairie dogs, and a 130 Gr load for big game, mule deer, prong horn,elk. After shooting an elk in 1957 I started to load the 150 Gr bullet for elk hunting. The 100 Gr load kicked less then the 130 and 150 bullet reloads and was more fun to shoot. For coyotes use the ammo you have, it will keep you in shape for big game hunting.

You started a thread on June 11 wherein many fine and knowledgable riflemen gave you good advice about the .270. The best information that can be culled from that thread is...

" The .270 is a capable caliber for whatever you want to do in North America. Pick a bullet weight your rifle shoots accurately, and use it!"

Most .270 users have 1 ( yes, only one) load that they use for everything, and they shoot it extremely well.

For long distance and windy conditions use 130gr. While the 100 gr loses velocity rapidly compared with the 130, it still is useful but dependent on the range, etc. I'm like the guy above, using your deer rifle for varmints is good practice. That's why I use the heavier bullets for almost everything except the .22 centerfires.

If you are looking for fur-friendly you will find nearly any bullet/round for the .270 to be a bit strong.

If you are wanting to put them down and now....then go with the round that you and rifle are most accurate with. I've never shot the 100gr in my .270 but would certainly want to practice with it to be sure on those long shots the .270 is good for. There will be quite a difference in point of impact at all distances.
