    130 Accubond or Partiton
    140 gr. Accubond or Partition

    Pick the one out of those 4 that shoot the best in your particular rifle. I feel they all would work wonderfully for you. I load for a buddy and in his rifle he shoots a 130 gr. Partiton and has taken lots of elk with it. Good luck.

    I believe in the show he referred to it as a 270 WSM.

    If I remember correctly he put that bull down rather quick. What do you guys think effective range for the straight 270 win would be on an elk?

    I'd think as long as you can punch it through the lungs, the .270 will kill one as far as you can accurately shoot.

    with practice and knowing your holdover, you can easily pull off a 300 yard shot.

    I prefer the 140 grain Nosler Accubond in my 270!! It shoots great and is very accurate.
