.270 JDJ (Cartridges of the World)
Warning! CAUTION: THESE ARE VERY HOT LOADS! FOR USE IN SSK BARRELS ONLY! NOTES: Based on the 225 Winchester case (itself a modified 30-30 case) this improved chambering provides ample capacity to deliver impressive velocity from handgun-length barrels, now commonly 14-16 inches. Best applications are in handgun varminting and hunting of smaller big game species, through mule deer size. For varminting, best performance is probably achieved with bullets of 100 grains. Either Hornady's or Sierra's 110-grain bullets would be good choices for pronghorn hunting. For hunting deer and similar-sized game, the best bullet weight is 130 grains. Heavier bullets can deliver more energy, but expansion is unreliable. This chambering has seen considerable use in various types of handgun competition. This is ample testimony to the potential accuracy of this chambering and the quality of gunsmithing involved in such alterations. Barnes' 100-grain X offers superior terminal performance for hunting applications. However, use of this bullet requires special handloading techniques (deeper bullet seating and a reduction in powder charge). (Cartridges of the World 9th Edition)
