Introducing: The Berger 270 caliber 170 grain EOL Elite Hunter

Berger’s latest addition to the hunting line is another design inspired by Extreme Outer Limits (EOL); the 270 caliber 170 grain EOL Elite Hunter. This bullet is designed for maximum external and terminal ballistic performance in 270 caliber rifles that  have twist rates faster than the traditional 1:10”. Nearly all rifles chambered for 270 caliber are fitted with 1:10” twist barrels.  This relatively slow twist limits the length, weight and BC of bullets that can be stabilized.  Typically, the heaviest 270 bullets are around 150 grains because that is all that can be stabilized in a 1:10” twist. However, if a faster twist barrel is [...]
