Ok guys you know my situation with the Cooper 280.
 
I'm going back to the old reliables this fall. 30.06 is shooting 2 inches high at 100 yards like a tack driver. Making those little clover leafs.
 
Now here is the delima. I've also been practicing with my .270. I'm almost out of ammo and don't reload for this gun. It loves Winchester's 140 grain Accubonds. Dang it Winchester has pulled this ammo disappearing act for 2 years straight now. Nobody and I mean NOBODY has Winchester bullets for the .270. I've looked almost every where in cyberspace driven to 3 counties and all of them are telling me Winchester is so far behind on making bullets and ammo until late October. Does anyone know where I can get a couple of boxes in cyberspace? 270 140 Accubonds.
 
Thanks

No. But would you believe I actually saw a box of 25-35 Winchester today?!!  Hadn't seen a box in thirty years.  ( It was old---at a pawn shop....)

Doesn't sound like Winchester, in this case, is to blame. Accubonds are a Nosler product. Perhaps look to Federal or Nosler brand ammo if Accubonds are your huckleberry

I'd start thinking about reloading too.

Yup. He wouldn't have any problem finding Nosler  bullets for a 270.

I saw some Winchester at a local sporting goods store today plus some Federal or Nosler brand ammo as well in 140gn. If you are interested PM me and I will give you the phone number.

Accubond and Federal cut ties last year, as Nosler is now loading their accubond bullets themselves for about $10 more a box.  My .300 WM loves the Federal 180 gr Accubonds, and my .270 WSM loves the 140 gr. Federal Accubonds.  When I found out the Federal dropped them I was a little upset.  Luckily I found a place off the beaten path and stocked up.  Winchester may have dropped Accubonds as well.
