It is safe to say that the .270 Winchester, commonly
referred to as .270 win or just .270, wouldn’t be as popular today if it
weren’t for the praises of renowned writer/hunter Jack O’Connor. O’Connor
proudly used the .270 round for forty years, even writing about it in the
famous magazine “Outdoor Life,” having shot the caliber from the young age of
twenty. Without him, the caliber size would never have gained the support early
The caliber was first introduced to the market in 1923 by
the Winchester Repeating Arms Company. However, it wasn’t used until 1925 that
a chambered rifle was revealed; the Winchester Model 54 bolt-action. Simply
put, the cartridge for the .270 is a necked down .30-03 and the same length as
the .280 Remington. The powder charge, however, is where the similarities begin
The .270 Win was first introduced with a 130-grain bullet
and was able to fire it at 3,140 feet per second. With this bullet, and the
powder behind it, hunters were able to drop even the biggest of game anywhere
from 400-1000 yards with ease. Later, two more bullet weights were add to the
mix; the 100-grain (gear towards small game) and 150-grain meant to be used for
elk, deer, moose, and other big game animals.
Each box contains 100 once fired brass shell casings. All Remington-Peters (RP) headstamps. This is unprocessed brass sourced from commercial shooting ranges. The casings have been washed and polished, but not resized and may still contain the spent primer.
It is recommended that all brass be inspected prior to being reloaded and fired.
