270 wsm ammo Overview:

The 270 WSM ammo, or 270 Winchester Short Mag, was designed and went into production in 2002.

Usually used in bolt-action rifles, 270 Short Mag excels at hunting coyotes, hogs, and deer.

Some people are building them on AR platforms, too, although the magnum can be hard on those if not beefed up to a more robust configuration.

270 wsm ammo has notably improved ballistics over similar cartridges, and 270 WSM ammo can be found in a wide variety

of grains and bullet types, making it not just a hunting round but an excellent target round.

Nosler Trophy Grade ammunition is high quality, production-run ammunition manufactured to strict tolerances

and inspected as it is hand-packaged. Trophy Grade features Nosler Custom brass and the dependable

, high performing bullets you know and trust.This Trophy Grade ammunition is loaded with Nosler’s AccuBond bonded core bullet.

Through a proprietary bonding process that eliminates voids in the bullet core, AccuBond marries Nosler’s traditional copper-alloy

jacket with its special lead-alloy core. The result is a bullet that flies true, penetrates deep, won’t cause extensive barrel fouling,

and will retain 60-70% of its weight. The white polymer tip helps protect against deformation while initiating expansion upon impact.

270 wsm ammo for hunting elk, deer, feral hogs, and black bear, then Remington’s 150 grain Core-Lokt

soft point will probably work really well for you. It’s also available with a 130 grain bullet as well, which is great for deer hunting.

270 WSM is capable of delivering high shock for impressively fast killing out to ranges of around 300 yards
along with clean but sometimes slightly delayed killing out to 400 yards.
After approximately 500 yards, wound channels become proportionate to the expanded bullet.
The 270 WSM ammo is an improvement over the older 270 Winchester providing higher velocity with bullets of the same weight,
and thus a flatter trajectory and more energy.

270 wsm ammo important information and history:

While it wasn’t an immediate commercial success, the high velocity .270 Winchester cartridge got the attention

of many hunters when first introduced in 1925 with the legendary Winchester Model 54 bolt action rifle.

With early .270 ammo loadings pushing a 130 grain bullet at velocities in excess of 3,000 fps,

many hunters appreciated the flat shooting characteristics of the round and the fact that it was so effective on thin skinned game.

The .270 Winchester cartridge gradually became extremely popular among North American hunters.

Indeed, the renowned gun writer Jack O’Connor was known for his affinity for the .270 and he’ll be forever linked to the

cartridge due to his columns featuring it in Outdoor Life.

The century-old .270 Winchester cartridge remains one of the Top 10 most popular centerfire rifle cartridges

in the United States to this day. Not surprisingly, virtually every single ammunition manufacturer of note like Barnes,

Browning, Fiocchi, Federal Premium, Hornady, HSM, Norma, Nosler, Remington, Sierra, Swift, and

Winchester produces several different variants of .270 ammo for hunting deer, elk, moose, bear, and many other big game animals.

Known for being a high velocity, relatively flat shooting, really accurate, and moderately recoiling cartridge

(compared to the bigger magnums), the .270 Winchester is a classic deer hunting cartridge if there ever was one.

Not surprisingly, it’s especially popular among mule deer and whitetail deer hunters as well as those pursuing game like pronghorn.

Jack O’Connor also helped cement the reputation of the cartridge as an effective bighorn sheep cartridge.

270 wsm ammo notice:

Make no mistake though: the .270 Winchester can be an effective cartridge for hunting bigger game like

black bear, elk, and moose as well.

However, different situations (like deer or pronghorn at long range vs moose at short range) necessitate the use of different kinds

of .270 ammo for best performance.

As is the case with other higher velocity cartridges like the 7mm Remington Magnum and

.300 Winchester Magnum, using the wrong kind of .270 Winchester ammunition can lead to disastrous results, especially on bigger game.

Many of the most popular .270 ammo loadings use lightweight, rapidly expanding bullets that are specifically

designed for use on thin-skinned game like deer. Those lightweight, thin jacketed bullets tend to perform very well on deer-sized game.

Unfortunately, those bullets are more likely to expand far too rapidly, sometimes explosively,

upon impact when used on much bigger game like elk and moose.

Bullet penetration is often terrible in those cases.

Sometimes the bullet will “grenade” upon impact and fail to reach the vitals when striking a bone or a heavily muscled shoulder of a big bull elk.

This can result in some horrific flesh wounds that are often not immediately fatal to the elk.

Fortunately, the .270 Winchester can be very effective on game like elk and moose when loaded with controlled expansion .270 bullets.

In general, lightweight 130 grain bullets are great for deer hunting, but hunters who use those lighter bullets on

larger game may still experience issues with poor penetration, especially on steeply quartering shots. However,

the .270 Winchester is absolutely deadly on really big game like moose and elk when using premium quality 150 grain bullets..

Keep this in mind when you select .270 ammo for an upcoming hunt.

Fortunately, there is a wide variety of .270 Winchester factory loads specifically designed for just almost

any big game hunting situation from Colorado to New Zealand. So, regardless of whether you’re using

a bolt action Remington Model 700, a Winchester Model 70, or some other hunting rifle,

there is pretty much guaranteed to be something for everyone on the list below of the best .270 ammunition for hunting.

In this article, I’m going to show you the best .270 ammo for hunting deer, elk, moose, pronghorn antelope,

feral hogs, black bear and all sorts of other big game. I’ll also go over the pros and cons of each individual load

and help you select the right ammunition for your specific hunting situation.

The 270 wsm ammo is a rifle cartridge developed by Winchester Repeating Arms

Company in 1923 and unveiled in 1925 as a chambering for their bolt-action

Model 54 to become arguably the flattest shooting cartridge of its day,

only competing with the .300 Holland & Holland Magnum, also introduced in the same year.

Brief History about 270 wsm ammo for sale

The 270 wsm ammo for sale was introduced in 1925 along with the Winchester Model 54 bolt action rifle under the name

“270 WCF” (270 Winchester Centerfire), but it did not immediately become popular because of the.30-06 Springfield

, which had only recently been introduced and was chambered for the M1903 Springfield bolt action rifle,

which was frequently “sporterized” for hunting.

However, over the following decades, particularly in the post-World War II era, the

.270 wsm ammo for sale gained significant popularity among hunters and sporting rifle

enthusiasts, placing it among the most widely used and popular big game hunting cartridges globally,

especially given the widespread use of rifle scopes. Shooters were aware that the.277 “was capable of

shooting more flatly than the well-known 30-06.

Due in large part to the glowing reviews of gun writer Jack O’Connor, who used the cartridge for 40

years and extolled its virtues in the pages of Outdoor Life, as well as other illustrious gun writers of

the era like the late Col. Townsend Whelen, the.270 Winchester, which was designed exclusively

as a big game hunting cartridge, became very popular.

270 wsm ammo

The 270 wsm ammo for sale was touted as being ideal for big game shooting in the 270 to 460 meter (300 to 500 yd)

range and was initially commercially loaded to drive a 130 grain (8.4 gram) bullet at around 960 m/s (3,140 ft/s).

Later, this was decreased to 930 m/s (3,060 ft/s). A 100 grain (6.5 gram) hollow-point bullet for varmint hunting and a

150 grain (9.7 gram) bullet with a larger sectional density were shortly introduced.

These bullets were appropriate for improved penetration of huge deer, such as wapiti and moose.

[3] However, the 130 grain bullet continues to be the most widely used choice.

The.270 Weatherby Magnum was the only other commercial 6.8mm cartridge available for sporting uses for many years.

It offered a flatter trajectory due to the larger powder capacity permitted by the belted magnum case,

but it never attained the same level of popularity as the.270 Winchester due to its higher price and offer limit.

WHAT IS 270 WSM AMMO:

Currently, a new generation of.277 “The.277 Winchester Short Magnum, which propels a bullet of the same weight 2

00 fps faster from a short action mechanism; the.27 Nosler, which is even faster but necessitates a long magnum action;

and the more recent 6.8 Western, which is essentially a modification of the 270 WSM firing a

heavier and larger bullet with a higher ballistic coefficient However, none of these modern cartridges

compares to the 270 Win’s level of popularity and provides little benefit for actual hunting.

The.270 Win is still one of the most widely used loads in part because to its international recognition.

Manufacturers of ammunition and firearms in other countries offer this chambering in a variety of firearm options, i

ncluding bolt-actions, single-shots, lever-actions, pump-actions, autoloaders, and even a few double rifles (such as the Browning BLR).

  1. Vanammo

    I have been fortunate to hunt Africa several times. This last time I wanted to try some long range hunting so I took my Sako grey wolf in 270 WSM. With the Nosler 140 grain ammo I was able to shoot a warthog at 352 yards, a baboon at 420 and a mountain Zebra ay 542. Needless to say I loved the accuracy, consistencie, and power of the round. I won’t shoot anything else in that rifle. The ammo is a little difficult to fine every now and then but worth the effort. Ron Boyd

  2. Vanammo

    Very accurate out of my Tikka but everything is, like others have said the FPS stated is very off. Averaged 2955 with an SD of 31.

  3. Vanammo

    This ammo shoots great out of my Tikka .270WSM accuracy is excellent. Performance is excellent. Very small groups at the range. Great performance in the woods.

  4. Vanammo

    Great hunting ammo that shoots great in my Model 70. Used on several Nebraska deer and Wyoming pronghorn for one shot kills.

  5. Vanammo

    I use the Nosler 140 Grain Accubond bullets in my Tikka T3 Hunter .270WSM. They are amazing. Very accurate and tremendous knock down power. I’ve shot 4 deer – 2 whitetails and 2 mulies and 1 elk with these. 3 were instant death and 2 went less then 20 yards. The bullet stays in tact so damage to meat is minimized with good shot placement. I have 3 boxes of ballistic tips that will be used at the range as I’ll only hunt with the accubonds going forward.

    This last time I wanted to try some long range hunting so I took my Sako grey wolf in 270 WSM. With the Nosler 140 grain ammo I was able to shoot a warthog at 352 yards, a baboon at 420 and a mountain Zebra ay 542. Needless to say I loved the accuracy, consistencie, and power of the round. I won’t shoot anything else in that rifle. The ammo is a little difficult to fine every now and then but worth the effort. Ron Boyd

  7. Vanammo

    Very Accurate cartridge / bullet. Have taken 5 whitetail bucks and have gotten perfect performance on everyone of them. I take high shoulder shots and this bullet stays together and drive straight through. If the deer do not drop you will find them within 20-25 yards. Great product.

  8. Vanammo

    I have only used this ammo at the range for my new Savage .270 WSM but I expect it will perform equally as well in the field. Only drawback is the price.

  9. Vanammo

    Save money on something else. If you load your own then you know how important quality components like brass, primers, consistent bullet weights etc., are to accuracy. Nosler takes the guesswork out of it if you don’t load your own and if you do, these initial loads leave you with as high a quality brass as you can find these days and confidence in the best performing bullets I have ever seen on big game.

  10. Vanammo

    Nosler does an excellent job on this cartridge. However, when I needed complete confidence in terminal ballistics, I went with the Berger Classic Hunter in 130s. They work better if you need to make a long shot on sheep. Accubonds would certainly do the same, however. Recommend both if needed in this caliber — 270 WSM.

  11. Vanammo

    The Nosler Accubond grouped very well but the speed was 2931 FPS average.

  12. Vanammo

    Very accurate out of my Tikka but everything is, like others have said the FPS stated is very off. Averaged 2955 with an SD of 31. For that price those numbers should be closer to advertised!! Federal premium, Barnes (which I’d never hunt with), and Hornady Precision Hunter are just as accurate and much closer to advertised speed. Hornady PH had an SD of 7!!

  13. Vanammo

    i will buy again

  14. Vanammo

    i will order again

  15. Vanammo

    a yes to go ammo

  16. Vanammo

    can you ship to canada?

  17. Vanammo

    i would order again

  18. Vanammo

    thanks for the fast shipping

  19. Vanammo

    this ammo shoots great out of my Tikka

  20. Vanammo

    great hunting ammo
