Administrative Note: The information above comes from manufacturers and is only informational. The actual ballistics obtained with your firearm can vary considerably from the advertised ballistics. Also, ballistics can vary from lot to lot with the same brand and type load. When manufacturer ballistic data was unavailable, ballistics were calculated using a ballistics calculator.

Anchor270 Win Ballistics Trajectory Chart

A bullet’s flight path is also called its trajectory. Seasoned shooters measure the trajectory in inches of bullet drop, milliradians (MIL) or minute of angle (MOA).

A flatter trajectory is preferred for long-range shooting because shooters need fewer adjustments to compensate for bullet drop. The 6.5 Creedmoor provides an excellent example of a flat trajectory, as its bullet drops relatively little at long range.

The 270 Win has a .277” diameter bullet. Its ballistic coefficient (BC) varies from .261 to .508, depending on the bullet’s weight and design. Its ballistics coefficient reflects how efficiently a bullet overcomes frontal air resistance and resists wind drift. A bullet with a higher BC won’t necessarily have a flatter trajectory, but it is inclined to exhibit a more consistent and predictable trajectory. Although many factors contribute to accuracy, a higher BC unarguably helps.

The 270 Winchester is not a long-distance caliber, but it holds its own out to about 400 yards. I typically zero in my 270 Win centerfire bolt-action hunting rifle at 200 yards. That gives me a reasonably flat trajectory for hunting large game like elk, whitetail, and mule deer with my 270 Winchester firearm.

When zeroed in at 200 yards, a Barnes VOR-TX TTSX BT 130-grain bullet will drop about -6.0” at 300 yards, -18.5” at 400 yards, and -37.5” at 500 yards.

Below, you’ll find a sample 270 Win bullet drop chart that gives you a general idea of the 270 Winchester trajectory.

270 Win Elevation Chart

Note: The chart above is an example of one 270 Winchester load, and actual ballistic performance may vary depending on bullet weight, lot, barrel length, and environmental conditions while shooting.

Anchor270 Win Velocity

A bullet’s velocity is measured in feet per second (fps). Essentially, muzzle velocity is the speed at which the bullet exits the barrel. Generally, a longer barrel length produces a higher muzzle velocity, as it gives the exploding powder more time in which to propel the bullet.

270 Win velocity is pretty good out to 500 yards. At that range, its 140 grain bullet can easily travel at 2,000 fps. But the 270 Win doesn’t hold a candle to the 270 Weatherby Magnum, which can achieve a 500-yard velocity of 2,350 fps with an identical bullet. Don’t expect magnum cartridge performance out of the 270 Win cartridge.

Bullet weight plays a significant role in a bullet’s velocity, as it takes more energy to move a heavier object. The Federal Power-Shok Copper 130-grain hollow point bullet will leave your barreling traveling about 3,060 fps, whereas the Federal Fusion 150-grain soft point will have a lower muzzle velocity of about 2,800 fps.

Handloaders reloading 270 brass can safely surpass these velocities and get better ballistic performance out of their 270 Winchester rifles. Caution is key, of course. Reckless experimentation can destroy your rifle (which is to say nothing about what could happen to your irreplaceable face and fingers).

Anchor270 Win Energy

A bullet’s energy is measured in foot-pounds (ft-lbs). It measures how much force a bullet delivers to its target at a given distance. “Muzzle energy” exclusively refers to the bullet’s kinetic energy at the instant it clears the barrel.

Velocity, bullet weight, and bullet design are some of the most important factors that determine how much energy a bullet can transfer to the target.

You won’t need as much energy for varmint hunting as you would while big game hunting. But no matter your quarry, the 270 Winchest maintains solid striking energy out to 500 yards with most projectiles.

The Browning BXS 130-grain polymer tipped bullet has a muzzle energy of 2,774 ft-lbs; at 500 yards, it still has 1,332 ft-lbs of energy. However, the Browning Silver Series 150-grain bullet soft point bullet has 2,706 ft-lbs of muzzle energy and only 955 ft-lbs of energy at 500 yards.

Anchor270 Win Effective Range

As I mentioned earlier, the 270 Win is not a long-distance rifle. However, most hunters can comfortably shoot deer and other game animals out to 300 yards with their 270 Win rifles. It’s possible to ethically harvest deer out to 500 yards with some projectiles and lots of practice.

Much farther than 500 yards, the 270 bullet begins dropping too fast to remain accurate.

AnchorHow Do 270 Win Ballistics Compare to Other Rifle Cartridges?

The 270 Winchester is my favorite deer hunting round when I know my shots will be within 300 yards. However, it doesn’t stand up to magnum cartridges like the 300 Winchester Magnum, 7mm Rem Mag, or 270 Winchester Short Magnum.

It’s much more comparable to the 308 Win, 30-30 Win, and 30-06 Springfield.

To show you what I mean, the team at Ammo.com has compiled several ballistic charts to quickly compare several of the above calibers.

AnchorFrequently Asked Questions

The team at Ammo.com has gathered and answered several of the most commonly asked questions regarding 270 Win ballistics.

AnchorWhat is the effective range of a 270 Win?

The effective range of a 270 Win is about 500 yards, depending on the projectile.

AnchorHow much does a .270 drop at 300 yards?

A .270 drops about -6” at 300 yards, depending on the bullet you’re firing.

AnchorIs a 270 good for 500 yards?

Yes, a 270 is good for 500 yards. However, if you regularly take 500-yard shots, I recommend the 308 Win or 6.5 Creedmoor.

AnchorWhat is the bullet velocity of a .270 Winchester at 200 yards?

The bullet velocity of a .270 Winchester at 200 yards depends heavily on the cartridge. If you choose one with a 140-grain projectile, you can reasonably expect about 2,600 fps.

AnchorWhat is the recoil like for a 270 Winchester compared to other calibers?

The recoil of the 270 Winchester is mild compared to other calibers like the 308 Winchester and 30-06.

AnchorWhat is the muzzle velocity of a 130-grain .270 Win round?

The muzzle velocity of a 130-grain .270 Win round is 3,100 fps.
