Why 130 grain bullets?

in the beginning the .270 was designed around the 130gr bullet. with a well built 130-gr bullet you could kill elk just fine.

Agreed, shot placement is 90% of the work.

I understand that.  I'm just wondering why his heart is set on the 130 grain bullet.

Barnes TSX or one of the bonded offerings Accu- Inter- or Scirocco.  Personally the TSX is what I'd go with.  They turn little guns into big guns.

While I would use any good quality factory load from Cor loct , silvertips etc on up. If you want a premium bullet Federal does load the 130gr partition in the vital shok line as well at the barnes. Not much of an elk hunter but I would expect a 270 slug in the lungs is going to do a lot of damage to about anything   regular bullet or premium.
