looking through the load books.. you might want to tinker with this,

for the 270.... 150 nosler solid base ballistic tip bullet(yellow tip), BC .496. behind 52.0 grains of H4350 for a muzzle velocity 2782 fps, and a load density of 83 %.

that should be plenty of cannon for deer here in MO.

for the 243.... 70 grain nosler solid base ballistic tip bullet ( purple tip), BC. 310 behind 42 grains of varget for a muzzel velocity of 3616 fps and load density of 83%

just a start, but these looked to be the best loads for velocity and accuracy in the nosler book. i trust those bullets to the core

hope it helps

In the .270 a quality 130 gr. bullet with a caseful of H4831 is the standard loading for many years. Seriously, look up beginning loads for H4831 and the 130 gr. in the .270 Winchester and work up to a load that makes you happy. Worked wonders for Jack O'Connor for a very long time!

In the .243 try the Sierra 85 gr. BTHP with either Varget or IMR-4064. As I told Bear in his post, it'll make you happier than Hugh Hefner! :D

I shot those loads for years Jeremy until I started hunting with a guy who handloaded. He made a shell for my gun that shoots much better than factory ammo on paper. I know that the doe I shot with my load this year at 186 yards flipped over on her back and never moved. Every time I shoot my rifle I have complete confidence in the way I shoot and exactly where the placement will be. I know my cold shot is one inch high and left from dead center every time. At 200 yards my cold shot will touch the ten ring and the next shot will be in it every time with handloads. With boxed ammo I could never get those results every time.

My pet load for the .243 would be using the 100gr Sierra Game King SBT (#1560) with Remington Peters Brass and Win. WLR primer with 35 grains of IMR 4320. It is on the slower end of the spectrum at 2723 fps but it is the most accurate in my Remington 700.
