Having an uptick in nuisance racoons it was time to get busy. I had not taken anything with my 6.5-270 JDJ yet and was in the middle of final load development for what would be my fall hunting load. I have it setup with the 120 TTSX setting .050? off the lands, fueled by 62.0 grains of Accurate MagPro, CCI200 and Startline 270 brass, these run 2775fs.
Over the past few years, I have gradually shifted towards Barnes bullets, and have been very impressed in accuracy and terminal performance. While this was my first ?live? test with the 6.5-270 I like the results. Of course, this is a very thin-skinned target.
Distance 60 yards
