Always searching for a step up in performance, I couldn’t help but notice that the Alliant Powder Reloader’s Guide (alliantpowder.com) lists some impressive velocities for the .270 Win. firing 150-gr. bullets handloaded using Reloder 26—Nosler Partitions, Sierra GameKings and Speer BTSP 150-gr. bullets managing slightly more than 3000 f.p.s.
The American Rifleman TV crew wraps up its west coast tour with a visit to Nosler headquarters in Bend, Ore., to check out its expanding rifle lineup.
After a century, the sun is setting on the .250-3000 Savage. Many decades ago, though, the Savage cartridge was extremely popular and chambered in a variety of rifles, from bolt-actions, such as the Winchester Models 54 and 70, to the lever-action Savage 99—the rifle to which the cartridge is most often linked.
While newfangled, high-ballistic-coefficient, “long-range” bullets have seized the attention of various media outlets in recent years, the reality is that it’s the tried-and-true designs, such as Nosler’s Ballistic Tip Hunting, that fill the majority of hunters’ tags each fall.
