I was out last month with a guy busting 900 yards with a 270.

He was shooting a 140 or 150 gr SMK or AMAX with handloads.
Not alot of high BC .277 (6.8mm)bullets available.

I have a 270wsm rebarreled by Pac-Nor I really wanted to shoot +1k. Can;t find any bullets worth a damn that can compete with my 260 though. It is crazy to me no really good BC match bullet is out there that I onw of.

    I have a box of Berger 150gr VLD in .277 dia. Label says G1 = .531 and G7 = .272

    Doesn't compare to the .264 dia 140gr JLK with its G1 of .639 and G7 of .327, or the .308 dia 208gr A-Max from Hornady with G1 of .633 and G7 of .324; but for a .270 Win I think this is probably the best commercially avaliable bullet to use.

    GS custom makes a 130gr 'HV' with an advertised G1 of .410; their 120gr HV has an advertised G1 of .413, I've never tried em though. Hope to test the 150gr VLD as soon as I can find a backstop far enough.

    I used to ping the gong at 1k with my 270. It is a great round for deer. You are right not any high BC pills out there... I sold it and built a great 300wm.

    Haven't shot it to 1000 but using JBM balistics and the fact that Litz number were dead nuts on at 600 yards, I would say that the 150 vld would have no problem getting to 1000 at about 40 moa, and actualy 1100 acording to JBM at my elevation.

    Yes.

    I have a stock Sendero with an early Tasco 10x SS; I watched the original owner nearly split the wig of a groundhog at a ranged 1210 yards on the first shot, I believe 42 minutes of elevation. The original owner was a very experienced BTDT operator with all kinds of t-shirts. I came into possession of the rifle and shot it at Quantico at a 1000 yd BR match, 12" and change for 5 rounds. Bullet: Sierra 135 MK; 59 gr H4831.

    Ballistics are very similar to .308 Win with 175 MKs.

    I was never much of a .270 guy until I owned this gun, and it's my go-to deer rifle. But, when you really want some giggles, load up 110 gr VMax over 45 grains of IMR 4350 and shoot field varmints - totally redefines 'red mist' and 'terminal ballistic performance'.

    150 gr bergers shoot very good in my rifle. Decent BC. Berger didn't go for a longer bullet/higher BC because they knew the majority of the market was 1:10 twist .270 Wins.

    Exactly. The 140 and 150 VLD would be a great choice. I've shot the 135 SMK to 1K with ok results. Inside 800 yards, it was awesome. My barrel was too hot by the time we got to 1K for ideal shooting. Depending on how fast you can run the 140 vs 150 with the given BC, would be the better choice. The 140 can be pushed a little faster than the 150, but the 150 has a slightly better BC. I love my 270 and enjoy shooting it. It is also a very efficient round with the amount of powder it uses for the velocities you get.
    Also, the Hornady SST bullets are a great choice with decent BC. I've been running these lately at just over 1/2 MOA. I'm using a Howa 1500 that's been bedded with a good trigger job, otherwise a stock gun.
