Re: 270 WSM reduced loads
I'm using 20 grains of 4198 over a magnum LR primer with 140 grain Gamekings for 1650~ fps. I have no windage deviation from my big game loads and it prints about 2" lower at 100 yards. I have a ranging reticle and I use the first crossbar below the cross hairs for aiming and it works pretty well, although repeatable accurate hits on small targets at varying ranges simply requires adequate practice. . I haven't used it yet on small game but I'm pretty sure at those velocities, the Gameking will give me a tiny bit of upset on grouse or rockchuck sized targets. Zippo case expansion, reload 'em forever.
