I was very suprised to find factory ammo that shoots this good.
Yeah, the makers usually won't post up the data they use in their commercial loads...trade secret I suppose.
BTW, didja know that those Ballistic Silvertips are actually a Nosler bullet too? It's the regular Nosler Ballistic Tip with an alox coating on it. (Works like moly lube but it's a hard coating that doesn't mess off as easily as moly.)
As JLA posted, you can buy them separately as components. Midway carries em too.
I had an old Remington 788 in 22-250 that just absolutely loved the Winchester 55gr SP factory load. I never was able to duplicate it's performance with reloads by following the same thinking you've got...same bullets, primer, case, etc. Tried all the WW ball powders listed in the manuals but I just couldn't find the "sweet spot" that the factory loads had. Maybe you'll have better luck than I did...but at least I had a lot of fun and took out quite a few fox, yotes, & prairie dogs trying!
BTW, I should add that even though I pulled a few of those factory loads apart to get the charge weight when I was trying to cross-reference the powder used in that 22-250 load, I still stuck with the min/max data from a manual. I would be fairly positive that the 270 uses WW760, but it might also be 780 or ???...don't assume anything without using proper data from a reputable manual!
