I have always loved the Nosler Partitions. My girls shoot the 270. We hand load and buy the Barnes TTSX 130 grain. Use H 4350 and get 3133 out of her gun. Barnes loaded or us hand loading are shooting the same .
Agreed on the Nosler bullets. I'd likely stick with 150 grains personally, but would not go lighter than 140. That said, I have seen a fair number of elk tipped over with 130 grain bullets when shot through the ribs.
I use cheap bullets that have worked over the years (Core-Lokts), but I definitely agree to stick with the 150 grain bullet versus the 140 or 130. I am a lot more accurate out to 300-500 yards with 150 grains. Aim small, miss small!!
The 145 gr ELD-X shoots well out of my 270 WSM. I have only killed deer with it. The bullet does come apart but both deer dropped in their tracks. No exit hole. I may try it on elk some day if I’m not packing my 300 RUM with the 212 gr ELD-X.
I made the switch last year to the 145 ELD-X. I’ve have taken a cow elk, buck, antelope, and bear with it, and my wife took her cow moose with it. Deadly bullet. Nothing has went further than 30 yards after being hit. Most everything stayed put.
