I put the final adjustments on my Mod. 111, .270 today. I found the right Factory ammo that works in this Rifle. Federal Premium 130 gr. Nosler Ballistic Tip* Nothing special about the Rifle, Mod. 111, .270 with a Nikon Monarch 3X9X40 BDC. I replaced the stock trigger with the Sav. 2 Rifle Basix set at 20 oz. 1/2" group @ 100 yds. For me is good. I haven't checked the BDC to see how close it will be at 200, 300, etc. But where I hunt 200 yds. would be the Max. Real happy with it's preformance. This will be the first year with this Rifle, only a month away, can't wait.

Nice looking rifle and scope. Should do the deed just fine. Without looking at a table, I would guess that if you were 1" high at 100 yards, you still should be within 3" at 200. If you are dead on now, give that Monarch four clicks up and you should be ready -unless the BDC is right on for your rifle and you would be ready now. Good Luck and Good Shooting

It's a work in progress, This a helpful reply from another site:

ran your load through the BDC Reticle Comparison Calculator in the Excel Spread Sheet posted in the topic above assuming a 3050 fps muzzle velocity.

With a 100 yd zero the .270 shot flatter than the BDC reticle If you sight it in for 200 yards it was very close to being spot on and was within an inch at all ranges. You would be spot on all the way out to 500 yards and 1.8 inchs high at 600 if you reduced your magnification slightly to 8.75x.
