More expensive to feed, but worth it.

Looking for 260 and 270 loads for my hunting riffle. Thanks

Can the community help me find new loads for both of my Hunting riffles 270 and 260. I would like to use something that has not much bullet drop in distance. Your help is much appreciated. #newtoreloading#Mexico2017huntingseason
Thanks, Hector Delgado.

Bullet - Sierra 142 Gr
Powder - 42.5 gr 4831
Primer - CCI large rifle
Seating depth - not important. Keep bullet off of the lands.
My 5 shot groups are running about 0.75 Minutes

dist MOA
YD drop
200 - 0
250 - 0.5
300 - 1.75
350 - 3.25
400 - 4.75
500 - 8.0 still has 1270 ft lb of energy.

If you are looking for a hunting load then you might want to consider substituting the Sierra 140 SBT Gameking for the 142 MatchKing.

With the 260 i use 44 gtains of IMR 4831 with a 130 Grain bullet and a Fed 210M primer. I have tried Barnes, Berger, Nosler, and Sierra 130 grain and this load has been very good with all of them and hammers a white tail deer. I load them to magazine length in 2 Remingtons and a Tikka and have had zero issues and they shoot 1\2 MOA at 100 meters in all 3 guns if i do my part.
