Default Remington 270?

Which ammo is best to use to cut down on the kick in my Remington 270, model 770, synthetic stock/camo pattern, bolt action w/a stainless steel barrel? All help is much appreciated, thanks.

Try the Remington Managed Recoil loads...115 grain PSP @ 2400 ft/s...rated at less recoil than a .243 Winchester...

My 8 year old son shoots my .270 with this load very well...

yeah look into the Remington managed recoil. it works as advertised. last week i put a red dot sight on one of my .270's for my ten year old daughter. i used standard Remington .270 cartridges to make sure i was printing on paper (which i was), then i used the managed recoil ammo to dial it in and i was suprised at how much of a difference in recoil there was between the two cartridges.

I'd just use lighter bullets. I shoot 180g CoreLokts out of my Rem 700 .30-06 and they don't kick that bad. Maybe you just need a soft recoil pad...

That mdl 770 already has a pretty descent recoil pad on it from what I have seen. I would just switch to the managed recoil loads. Out to about 200 yards you should be fine with a well placed shot, which low recoil will to help achieve.

With standard loads, either a 130gr or 100gr load will probably give lightest recoil. If 100gr loads have bearable recoil I wouldn't have a problem using them on deer at reasonable ranges. I've dropped a muley with a 75gr sissy bullet out of my 25-06

Yeah, I think I am gonna try the Managed Recoil Loads. What grain should I be looking for and will it be deflected when shooting through trees like a 243 would? That's 1 reason why I bought the 270 was because the first year I hunted the creek bottom I missed a really wide and tall racked 8 point that was making a scrape as I was shooting at him, lol. Well to make a long story short, I don't plan on wasting bullets or time with another 243 after that, but my 243 isstill good for "open range" shots. Thanks. Oh, what grain of the MRL should I use and how much does a box of MRL cost? Thanks, Frank.

You're going to experience bullet deflection no matter what you're shooting if you're muscling through trees. However, it's been found that sleek, powerful loads are the better ticket to success over the "brush busters" like the 30-30, moving slow with poor aerodynamics.

Remington only makes one grain weight for the 270 managed recoil round. That should narrow it down for ya.

Sorry, but i don't think changing your gun from a 243 to 270 is gonna amount to a hill of beans in this case. Shoot through trees and you run the risk of deflection no matter what cartridge you choose

As far as the MRL by Remmington, I've used them in my 270. They are as advertised, much lighter recoil. They only come in 1 weight and they ran me about $23 per box
