Growing up as a kid in PA My father taught me to reload at a young age and the main reason was I would bug him everyday to keep my varmit loads in good supply. With me shooting hundreds of rounds a week at big fat PA groundhogs he finally had enough and said son it's time for you to sit down and load your own. And it was against his religion to load nothing but Hornady bullets. And after 30 yrs of reloading and bragging about how these bullets hold together on all game, I never changed. When I am hunting bear in Washington state I prefer my .270 loaded with 140 gr SPBT which has taken 21 bears now and only one I can recall shooting twice with my longest shot at well over 500 yds and the result was the same deadly. All the hunting I do is spot and stalk hunting so it takes stealth and reliable ammo when the opportunity presents itself. To me the 140 gr out of the .270 is hands down the best bullet ever made for the .270 and if you never tried it then I suggest you do because it will lay the smack down on any critter in its path. Thanks Hornady and you can always count on me bragging you up. Nothing but Hornady for this dude. Here is my cougar I took in Washington on Dec. 28, 2010 with a .223 loaded with the unbelievable V-MAX again one shot one kill !!!!
