I would ask that when we are discussing 4831 that we specify which one. Hogdon H4831 or IMR 4831. They are NOT the same powder....

I'd be willing to bet that the old manuals are talking about the IMR4831. That is the powder I use for most of my rifles actually, including my 270. But I use 130 grain accubonds

This classic manual lists the following bullets for the .270: 100 gr., 130 gr., 150 gr., and 170 gr. The loads for the 170 gr. bullets and 4831 powder are as follows:

Starting Load 52 grs. Muzzle Vel. 2,646 200 Yd. Vel. 2,098

Mid Load 54 grs. Muzzle Vel. 2,719 200 Yd. Vel. 2,156

Max. Load 56 grs. Muzzle vel. 2,803 200 Yd. Vel. 2,222

Hope this helps. All the best...

speer fence post (long straight sided round nose) seated to max magazine length
when seating projectiles I cant have die set as normal I have to back it out of press as cant unscrew top enough to get projectile started.

I just checked Speer's website and they no longer list a 170gr. bullet. That may be the reason the powder companies stopped providing load data for it. My 48th edition of Lymans also does not list 170gr. bullet for the .270.

I just ran some data thru LFAD and it came up with this for the speer 170gr round-nose bullet using IMR 4831.
