wildcat-270ccc

I recently acquired a 1942 model 70 270 that has been wildcatted to a 270ccc. This is a 270win case with a steeper shoulder. I have the dies for it which are marked Hollywood Gun Shop 270 ccc. Anyone have any experience with this old wildcat?

According to Wayne Von Zwoll in "Long Range Shooting" the cartridge was originally developed by RW Miller and was then know as the 270 PMVF (Powell Miller Venturi Freebore). When the company was sold to Hollywood Gun Shop the name was changed to 270 ccc but it's the same cartridge. Does this help any?
