I just finished reloading my first set of cartridges for my .270. I did 5 shells with my 140 grain fail safe bullets and 10 shells with 140 accubond bullets. With the fail safe's I used 48.5 grains of IMR 4831 and with the accubond's I used 49.5 grains of powder. They look pretty sweet, I can't wait to try them in the morning!!! Reloading takes some time but it's so much fun. I'll let you know how I make out shooting. Thanks again for the help before.
Love2hunt, what's your set up? I've got a RCBS Rock Chucker Supreme Master Kit and I love it! Yesterday after I put my boy down for his nap, I rolled out 20 rounds of my 220 swift for ground hogs in PA ;D I already had the cases prepped and primed just waiting for powder. I stuck with 40 grain Nosler Ballistic Tip Varmint Spitzer with 39gr. of RL15. They turned out AWESOME! It's been a while since I was down there loading and I almost forgot how satisfying it can be when you finish them ;D
Now all I have to do is a quick sight in when I get to PA and the hogs will be in trouble. I'll be sure to get photos of how I do

Hey, I have RCBS reloading equipment too. I have the Rock Chucker Press, the rotary case trimmer, the model 10-10 scale, a powder trickler, case deburrer, and the lube kit. So far I have only used CCI primers and IMR-4831. As of right now for my .270 I have made 48 cartridges of 140 gr. Fail Safe, 50 Rounds of 140 gr. Accubond, and I just picked up a box of 110 gr. Hornady V-Max bullets. They are pretty nice looking and I loaded 5 up last night because I had a little time. I think the coyotes will like them My fail safe's are shooting a nice group at 100 yards, all my bullets are touching, making one ragged hole. I haven't really shot too many accubond's yet.
