My Ruger (270)does not like the ballistic silver tip ammo and I have never gotten the accuracy from winchester ammo I was looking for.
I like Remington 130 grn cor lokt and 130 grn Hornady SST both very accurate and deadly.My Dad shoots Power points in his 270 WSM and it is spot on,could be my gun doesn't like them.

the reason i ask is because every time I shoot with the remingtons I always have a bunch of little tiny fragments that I have to clean out of the barrel, I really liked the silvertips 170 gr outa my 30-30, I have killed one deer wit the remingtons and they dont destroy alota meant which is good, but I had a problem with some of them not going off the first shot. I was looking at the hornady light mag for 270 win but no stores close carry them and i would have to order and pay $20 extra for hazardous matterial.

Yeah, the SST was around $35 to $40 bucks so I switched back to the Remington.My wife has a 260 and the Cor lokts are $35 a box this year,last year they were only $22 bucks......now that's sad.

I use the silvertips in my 25.06. They fly well. They also do a heck of a lot of damage if they hit solid shoulder. I've not lost a deer that I hit with these bullets.

That Depends on your Gun. I shoot a Salvage 110L in 30-06. I used to use Winchester in 165 gr. It was very accurate with that gr. But i found it to do alot of damage to the meat. so I switched to Winchester 150 gr. And could not get it to dial in,so I tried the remington Core Loct. 150 gr. And It is the most accurate round I have found for My Gun. I have tried Winchester 150 gr. again after I got it dialed in with the Remmington and I was not hitting the same. That and when I used the Winchester 165 grain I did have several misfires where I have not had a single one since i switched to remmington ammo.

I hunt in eastern Kentucky where the deer are fairly scarce but improving...the terrain is rough, thickly wooded and steep (and in just a few seconds, deer can go a long way, even dead--straight down hill).  

I have had poor results with both Remington and standard Winchester ammo in .270.  The best results that I have had has been with Federal Premiums (available at Walmart) with 150 gr Nosler Partitions.  They shoot well, are destructive (= quick kills), and always exit.

I have had powerpoints, silvertips, and core-lokts all fail to exit, even on small whitetails.  The mess they leave on the inside (as the bullets come apart) has been terrible.

My rule of thumb, if the bullet will not consistently exit the animal then don't use it.  Two holes are better than one!

I killed a nice 7pt this year with Winchester Supreme 7mm Remington Magnum 150 gr Ballistic Silvertips...6 inch hole all of the way through...1/2 of right lung was lying on the hillside 10 ft behind the deer...needless to say...NO TRACKING.

For everything I have .243's,.270's,.30-30's, rimfires, .45's and even my shotguns, I have to look no further than Winchester. I have Winchester , Ruger, Marlin, TC, Browning, Taurus and Remington guns. All of my guns prefer one or another "flavor" of Winchester Ammo. Coincidence?...

honestly in recent years i've not gotten great performance out of either of those brands. I use hornady customs exclusively for deer. you don't need the light mag power for deer, although i use them on larger game.

on an animal as small as a deer 2 holes is overrated. explosive internal expansion will put the animal down faster (see the article in current buckmasters mag about this, studies concur) and leave a better blood trail. i use the hornady sst as i hunt in an area where other hunters will claim your kill if they beat you to it. since changing to it I have yet to have the deer walk a combined 1 yard after being hit. if i'm working at it, it'll print cloverleaves at 100 yds off of a sleeping bag (the single most important part of putting a deer down quickly is accuracy)
