Seems like accubonds do well with the 270wsm. That's my most
Accurate rifle at this time. Win brass, fed match primers, imr 4350 and 140 gn accubonds. 1/2 moa at 300 yards doing 3100 fps.

All my reloads with Winchester Supreme nickel cases - once shot with factory round.

Nosler or Lapua would be good, but pricey !!

Lapua doesn't make 270wsm cases.

I just commented on the poster's message. I don't care if they don't make it. Lapua makes good brass.

Is Norma brass better than the other stuff? I can't believe how many reloads I'm getting out my Rem brass.

I have had some Norma cases that were on the soft side, but overall they seem fairly uniform. I will always choose Lapua over Norma if possible, but Lapua makes a very limited selection of cases.

I ran a hot load of IMR 4831 in Winchester brass, with WLRM primers, and 130 Accubond's, to 3340fps. Brass life was good with some brass having over 8 loads on them. Accuracy was sub MOA

I loaded up some 130 Interbond's for a friends 270 whizum. IMR 7828, Win brass, WLRm's and 3315fps. Accuracy was + or - 1 MOA.
