.270 Preferred Powders

Right now im just starting to reload for my .270 with 130 and 110 grain spitzers and was wondering if anyone knows of a better powder than IMR4831
I love the smell of fresh shotgun in the morning.

H4831SC is a better powder and is a little slower burning than IMR 4831

+1 on H4831SC. It does not meter very well but I measure all my rifle loads individually anyway. Very accurate in my rem 700 with 130 gr nosler ballistic tip.

I use IMR 4895 it seems to burn a little quicker than 4831

270 loads

I am also a huge fan of H-4831SC. It is very accurate for my rifle at about 59.0 grains with a 130 grain Nosler Ballistic Tip.
