I have my grandfathers built in 1958 Husqvarna 3000 he had it rechambered to 270 Wby in the 1960's he gave it to my dad when I was a teen in the late 60's - early 70's I shot my first several deer and moose with this rifle.

My grandfather for some reason decided one day he wanted it back he gave me 4 rifles in its place then just months before he died at 94 years of age he gave it back to me.

It then sat in the safe for years until a couple years ago I pulled it out I figured like me born in 1959 I don't wear old wool type clothes anymore wear modern Goretex - quick dry - polar fleece now it got me to thinking that it was time to redress this old girl to.

I bought a black McMillan Sako Hunter palm swell stock had it Cerakoted OD green - had the barrel/action Cerakoted satin black installed Leupold rings and bases and a new VX2 4-12x40mm LR reticle scope.

I loaded an extremely accurate 140gr TSX load at 3200fps issue is I am now running low on these bullets and looking thru my reloading bench I see I have appr 500 110gr Accubonds for my 6.8SPC rifles got me to thinking maybe I can use these in my old 270 Wby.

I see Nosler has load data listed but what I'm looking for is real life hunting experiences with this bullet in a 270 Wby this load will only be used for deer hunting and the occasional coyote that pops its head out where it shouldn't.

Thanks for any thoughts... :)

They will work fine, you should get 3600 to 3700fps as my wife's 270 Win. goes 3450fps with a 22in. barrel. They will kill deer like a bolt of lightning.

For sure. Way to bring the rifle back

And yeah, those 110 ABs should be wicked. Similar to the 257 Wby...

I had planned on loading the 110 gr AB's in my Browning B-78 that had ben rechamberedto 270 Wby, but had only played with the 110 gr TTSX before selling the rifle. I was also planning on using it for a longer range deer rifle, and for wolves. I was still testing and at one grain off max with the TTSX and Re22, was getting 3800 fps out of the 28" barrel and producing 1" groups. Thought the AB's would get similar performance.

Have fun and let us know how they work on deer!
