      I have a 1950 Mannlicher in 270 Winchester than I would like to load using a NOE 279-160-FN2 GC. I have the mold, the bullet, and the gun. No idea what powders to use. This will be this rifles first adventure with lead. I can’t be the only person that has this mold.

      The rifle twist rate is 1:9 and the length of the bullet with gas check is 1.186″. The alloy is 2.22% Sn, 2.21% Sb, 0.18% As, and 95.39 Pb.

      I have the following powders available:

      IMR – 4064, 4895, 4759
      Hodgdon – H4895, H4831SC, H1000
      Alliant – Blue Dot, Unique, 2400, Bullseye
      Accurate – 5744
      Winchester – 231

      I plan on eventually pushing the velocity in this rifle to see what it can do.

      What is the dressed weight of the boolit? My Lyman 4 only goes to 150. I believe your 9 twist will top out around 1800 keeping accuracy.

      I would start with 18 gr of 5744, 19 gr is starting load listed with the RCBS 150.

      That is the only powder of your list that is show. I do not own a 270 cal and never see myself owning one. So yes I have no experience with 27 cal. But have lots with 9 twist 5.56.

      I hope this helps your starting point .

      Opps, it also lists unique at 12 for start. This being RCBS 150 not your boolit

      if you are going to stay under 2000 fps, 5644 is a good choice ,,, if you try for 2200 or higher, 4895 might be better .

      That would be a fantastic bullet for paper patching I think. Ken is right about the speed limitations with that twist rate. Sure you can make holes in the target, sometimes, but the accuracy won’t be there. Paper patch is a workaround, and the bullet you show is an ideal design for that application.
      Just another option.

      Not a screamer, but about 24 grains of IMR-4895 with a tuft of Dacron works well for a 160 grain in the 7×57 and 7mm’08, for a reduced loads. .284″ not the 277″ bullet; all things being equal and they’re not!

      12 grains of Unique, is also a common starting point for a gallery load. (No Dacron)

      Be safe and work up your loads, and read up on Dacron fillers, if not familiar, and enjoy!

      I would also suggest Unique as a starting place your 4831 would be where I would go when you seek to stretch it’s legs using the H1000 IF you can find a data point to start with……I’m currently stalled at that point myself.

      Might take a lot of powder to get an efficient H1000 burn.

      I think it is a very nice format. 🙂 There are many starting points shown, data states 1×10 twist and starting velocity of 1954. that may be your ceiling also with 1×9. also states start 10% low and work up. all good advice.

      Not all powders are the same when it comes to the psi needed for uniform burn. When choosing a powder for your application, I would heavily lean towards powders that are known to burn completely in shot shells and standard pistol loadings. These powders burn more consistent at lower pressure. Just a thought,

      Where does NOE post load information? Looked on his Forum and his mold page and could not find it. I have that mold and have some ready to load so that info is timely.

      Thank you jwt. I have been on Noe’s Forum since it started and I had never found or followed that posting. Great info on it.
