Default 270wsm

What do you folks think of barrnes 110gr for the 270sm. I'm looking for a bullet that will not do a ton of meat damage on whitetails. I have 2 boxes of win.xp3 in a 130 gr will it work or to much damage. Rich

If you handload no cartridge has to produce meat dmage. Every bullet has a proper impact velocity and can be loaded accordingly. If youre shooting factory ammo Id say shot placement is your friend. The barnes bullets are pricey but known for being tough. Try a 140 grain Accubond also and dont shoot game through the shoulders, shoot for the lungs.

I'd look to the 130gr TSX...

Which rifle are you shooting it out of? I really want a 270wsm...

The gains of the short magnum in my opinion arent wort the hassles but the bullets named would do you well.

If you don't want meat damage, don't shoot 'em in the meat.

I think the standard PSP and RN lead core bullets are perfect for whitetails at normal ranges. There are times when the deer don't pose to be shot like they do on tv. I like a bullet that can be relied on to fully penetrate on angled shots.

I shoot the Winchester soft-point bullets in 150 grain in my .270 Browning WSM.....aim for the heart or lung shot and you won't do any damage to the meat,I shot a 9-Point Buck last year and the exit hole wasn't very big at all.You also have to remember with the .270 WSM your shoooting a lot faster bullet and in my opinion your going to going to need a decent weight bullet to knock down a Deer and if You hunt in any thick area's with brush the bullet may deflect more with too light weight a bullet?I would go with the 130 grain bullets You mentioned,its a decent light weight bullet that will give it more speed and range yet heavy enough to do some serious damage to a Deer.The lowest grain bullet I would go with would be a 120 grain,the ideal bullet weight in my opinion would be 130-140 or 150 for Whitetails.


I know a few guys that shoot the 130 grain Ballistic-Tip bullets...to me that would seriously damge any meat if your shot was off by very much,to me the ballistic-tip bullets are more for Coyote/Varmit Hunting where its not going to matter where You hit them and saving meat isn't a concern.

If you are shooting a meat deer shoot it in the neck. Then the rest of the deer is fine to eat.

Ridge Runner is correct, the new BST are great. The rest of this advice concerns the hell out of me, why would you shoot a deer with a 140gr accubond?? unless it was a large northern deer or a muley??? You never aim at the neck on any animal with a rifle, again poor sportsmanship and no respect for the animal.
The wsm isnt worth the hassle...........I believe those who say that have never used them, I have the 223, 243, 25 wssm, I have the 270 wsm, 7wsm, 300wsm, and the 325 wsm, they all are tack drivers, short action, handy rifles!!!!!
I have shot 23 deer with the 270wsm and 300wsm 130gr BST and 150gr BST and not ONE took a step, they drop where they are, I shot my goat with a 270wsm 110 TTSX barnes and he back flipped and laid still, the 110 gr TTSX for the 270, 3006, 270wsm, and the 130gr TTSX for the 300 win mag, 300wsm are flat made for deer, antelope, and kick butt.
Please dont aim at the neck on purpose and if you want an answer to your question the 270 wsm 110g Barnes TTSX is perfect for any deer, goat, sheep walking in North America
