Look on your barrel and if it says Winchester 270 then use Winchester Silver Tip ammunition. I did and you can see the results from the pictures below.

I use win ballistic silver tip 130 gr in my Remington 270. Its dropped them in their tracks with one shot for the last 10 Years ive been using them. They are deadly.

Hornady is best factory load out there. 180 grn. is most common, but the distance your shooting matters most. Higher grns. for close shots and lower grns. for longer shots. maybe 150 grn. for over 200 yrds.

I assume you mean you have a Remington chambered in .270 Win. If so, I have had great results with Winchestors ballistic silvertips in 130 gr.

Hornady SST's. Any grain from 130-150 will do. I personally use 140 grain. The 130 is ballistically the most efficient however.

A 130 - 140 grain bullet, regardless of brand, seems to have the best all around ballistics for the .270. soft points are fine for whitetails. Hit em right with one of these and they will go down in a heap.

I would definitally say you can't go wrong with the winchester ballistic silvertips. As long as you hit that animal in the kill zone, it isn't going to go far at all! I use a 30-06 here in Az, and I have killed both deer and bull elk with the 150 gr. I don't know where you are hunting, but with a 270 you wont need anything more than 150 gr., all depends on how far you intend to shoot. It is rare to drop an elk where it stands, but I swear I did it with a lung shot last fall. Just don't gut shoot it, etc and that animal is gonna go night night. Good luck

You will need to practice with your Remington and try several different brands and loads to see what you are the most accurate with. Dropping a deer in it's tracks will not always happen. The best thing you can do for yourself, and out of respect for the animal, is to become deadly accurate and able to hit a deer's vitals area every time. You must be sure of your ability in all kinds of weather, distances and light conditions. This will only happen after you and your Remington have become "old friends" I have heard the Barnes Triple Shock Bullet is one of the most reliable bullets. I can also tell you I have never failed with Remington's CoreLokt ammo over many years. See what works best for you and stick with it.
