I have a Mossberg 100 ATR in .270, also. I' went through about 5 or 6 different brands and sized of bullets before I found the right combo that worked for me.

I found that the 130 gr Federal Premium Vital-Shok Nosler Ballistic Tip worked the best. The rifle will consistantly shoot 1 inch to sub-1 inch groups @ 100 yards. The worst groups that I had were the Remington Core-Lokt 150 gr from Wal-Mart and they weren't even that bad, in the 1.75" - 2" range. These were all shot prone using a bipod, not from a bench.

The Mossbergs are great rifles, I'm waiting for the new 4x4 to come out so that I can add another one.
