Try a 150gr bullet sight in 2 inches at 100 yards if you can back out to 250 yards and try a shot good luck

Tables are for sighting in only...too many variables.

Twist, Barrel Length are big factors.

Even atmospheric pressure, temperature, and thermals will have some slighter effects.

The bottom line is that the trajectories are put on there to give you a ball park, so that you can put a piece of paper out there and see what your rifle does where you like to hunt...

If you're not going to practice at X yards, why would you try shooting a deer at that distance?

I shoot the Remington Core-Lok 150gr 270 rounds. I site in dead on at 200 yrds. This puts me 2" high at 100 and 9.4" low at 300. At 300 yrds I would just lay the crosshairs level with the deers back. I have shot deer out to 200yrds without an issue and would not hesitate to do it again. At 300 yrds, I would use a solid rest. I shot my 200yrd deer off hand but that is me. You may want a rest for that distance as well.

Rebel, I do not see this as being possible. The reason I say this is I site my 270 in 2" high at 100 and and 9.4" low at 300. Now granted, I shoot the regular Core-Loks and shoot 150gr, but I still do not see this as ballistically possible. Are you sure you do not meen 1" high at 100 and dead on at 250? This I may find possible but still a stretch.

he told me 1 in high at 100 and he said he dropped a mule deer at 350 yards with it, im sure you know alot more than me but thats just what he said, i mean i have no idea i wasnt there when he shot it and i have never shot my gun that far. it did seem a little suprising to me to, i have heard of other people sightn in at 100 and puttn it 1 to 2 inches high and shootn 300 yrds

I can see shooting 350yrds with the gun sited in 1" high at 100yrds. He would have aimed about 11" high to hit his mark. On a mule deer that would be around 2" above its back. Not out of the question by an meens. With my 270 and the 150gr Core-Lok, I need to aim right on the bucks back at 300yrs to let the bullet drop 9.4". That is figuring that the normal buck will be around 18" from the top of the back to the bottom of the chest.

if you want the best bullet that you can get for the 270, go for the hornady 140 grain boattail sp. sighted in at
1 1/2 inches high at 100 yards you will be dead on at 200 yards, and only 6 inches of drop at 300 yards.
or the hornady sp light magnum. these shoot 1 1/2 inches high at 100 yards , dead on at 200 yards, at 300 yards the drop 6 1/4 inches and at 400 yards they drop 18 1/4 inches. choose either one of these any you got a winner.

The only truth any of you have come close to is that factory ammo sucks. The only factory ammo out there good enough to keep you consistant is way to expensive for one to practice with, and practice is the only way to be able to play this game. I use sierra HPBT match grade 135gr bullets with 59gr of 4831sc powder this gives me 1.5" rise at 100 yards at 3250 fps and dead nuts on at 325 yards. I have profected my loading methods and am able to shoot 2"moa at 1000 yards with my rifle. Now for those of you that think it's just an expensive rifle and optics your wrong. I use a mossberg 100atr 270 winchester " a wal-mart rifle" and a chinese osprey 10x40x50 scope. This just proves the fact that it's all in practice and the ammo you shoot. there are to many of you out there that don't know what your talking about and are to quick to give advice you should learn the game before you teach it.

My rifle is accurate out to 300 yds( farthest shot taken) and I shoot factory 130 grn cor lokt in a Ruger M-77 Mk II with a Bushnell 3200 Elite on it.Not gonna be shooting a 1000 yds,so groups at that distance is a mute point.
I agree factory ammo will not shoot the groups custom ammo will....but as long as it does the job in the woods,i would not go as far as saying it suxs.

I shoot a Browning X-Bolt in 270 Winchester and use the following handload.

150 grain Speer Grand Slam

54.5 grains of IMR 4831

Bullet seated .020" from the lands

I sight in 2.49 inches high at 100 yds, this gives me a 225 yd zero and a point blank of 266(distance at which the trajectory is the same distance above and below the line of sight).

This gives me a bullet drop of 2.3 inches at 100 yds, 10 inches at 200 yds, and 24 inches at 300 yds.  I typically don't take shots beyond 300 yds on deer or antelope sized animals, the vitals are only 6 inches tall, therefore not giving you enough margin for error.

YOU CAN GO TO REMINGTON OR FEDERAL OR WHO EVER AND LOOK UP BALLISTICS AND CHECK ON ALMOST ANY ROUND YOU WANT........
