Just bought a new rifle. Encore Pro Hunter in .270 Win. This rifle has a 28" barrel. Has anyone shot this rifle and what bullet weight/ factory ammo do you reccomend. I am going to try the 130 grain.Will be hunting fields with 300 yard shots very likely.Figured the 130's were flatter shooting. I was told by a co worker that he shot 130s out of a 26 inch barrel with bad results. The bullet would explode and not go through the deer leaving no trail. I am not a fan at all of the plastic tip bullets Imo they don't really do good unless you hit bone first.Tried the plastic tip once more this year in a 308 with bad results again, double lung shot behind the shoulder very poor blood trail and 200 yard, 3 hour tracking job. Shot 3 deer this year with the plastic with the same result deer ran a minimum of 100 yards with very poor blood. All the deer were shot behind the shoulder through both lungs. Done with plastic!! They are now in the coyote ammunition bucket. I have killed many many deer but never with a .270. Over 70 of them have been with the .30-06. Wanted a single shot rifle in .30-06 wasn't available so the .270 was my next choice. Kinda worried about the 130 grain explosion, but wanted to use them for longer range.Going to try core locks, power points and federal premium btsp. Anyone have experience with these bullets on deer? Will they penetrate both sides or explode? Would like to know your results.
