Yes...That's the one I'm talking about...the Nosler .277 160 grain partition...
I've not had a-lot of luck getting any of the regular Barnes bullets to group..and...I've yet to try some of the triple shocks for the 270 ...I guess I'll have to load some up and try it later on this month and just see how they do...
I'm gonna GUESS that they would work well. I killed several elk using a 160gr NP but that was with a 7RM. Still, if you are getting 24-2600fps from your .270, they should do a number on an elk. That extra weight of metal certainly isn't gonna hurt you.
When I went pronghorn hunting last year the outfitter had no reservations about using a .270 for Wyoming elk. This was an experienced no-nonsense man that has been in the business for a long time. Most of his hunts are for pronghorn, mule deer, and elk. This kind of advice means a lot in my decision of what to use. We didn't get into bullet weights or anything, just the cartridge.
