Excellent predator round
I use Winchester ballistic silver tips in .223 for hunting predators at night, and I find them to be clean shooting, and accurate rounds. Expansion is great with plenty of knock down force and internal damage. That equals in quicker kills and less blood tracking, which hunting at night is preffered. Damge to the fur is minimal due to most of the energy is used up inside and not out. I will continue to depend on this round until Winchester comes out with something better.

Winchester 300 WSM BST
The ammunition is great. Every deer shot with this ammo has dropped in its tracks fro 95 to 260 yards. The ammo has been shot from a Browning Auto Loader. Each shell has fed well , fired when required , with no hangups and has ejected when it should . I continue to rely on winchester products.

Best ammo for my 300 WSM/308 WIn
I've used this ammo for 3 years now, and have taken over 15 deer with it. Usually they drop where I hit them all the way out to 100-125 yards. Accuracy is amazing out of my Browning A-Bolt 300 WSM. My brother also uses it out of his .308 to the same outstanding satisfaction. Everything we hit drops! Give it a try, you'll be amazed how much the performance is over standard grade ammunition.

I was shooting 1 inch groups at 100 yds with my Browning X Bolt 7-08. The ammo was very consistant in its patterning. Couple of years ago I shot a buck at about 75 yards and it dropped the deer where it stood.

The hornady ammo is a couple of dollars cheaper.. basically you get what you pay for. If you want fire five shot of the hornady and five shots of the winchester ballistic silvertip.. that will be all the answer you need. The winchester ammo will out perform almost anything on the market..
I use the ballistic silvertip bullet in 130 grain 270 and have been using it for the last 10+ years due to how it always impresses me with it terminal ballistics at all ranges from 10-400 yards....the range of shots I've killed things with it. I've never had to shoot anything twice with it in all the dozens of deer, hogs, and coyotes I've shot with it. I've never shot a 25-06, but its pretty similar to a 270 I would assume and I always have nice exit wounds and never have to track what I kill. It just drops. Ive never used Hornady in that range of caliber so I cant say yea or nea on them.
theres really not much difference. It was really just a marketing ploy from winchester to vamp up sales. Basically the whole idea was to make it a short action rifle instead of the little longer out of the regular 270 and to get more powder closer to the magnum primer for a faster ignition by like a millisecond. I dont feel the need to trade in my 270 for that, plus the WSM is like 150 maybe 200 FPS faster which means nothing unless your shooting 1000 yards and plus WSM ammo will be harder to find and plus its more expensive and If you reload like I do then It uses up a lot more powder for not a lot more results. They developed it for the people who feel they need to have the latest greatest thing out there.
.270 Win is the original round from Winchestor. .270 WSM (Winchestor Short Magnum) is the same bullet but with a shorter and fatter casing that allows a more efficient burn rate of the powder which in turn provides better performance. They are very different and are not interchangable.
The WSM is necked down. Not worth the extra loot for the rounds. A standard .270 Hornady SST is one of the most efficient and capable rounds on the market. .270 caliber rifles are readily availible in all the popular brands, and the hornady ammo is only 25 bucks or so a box. I shoot a .270 and use the 140 grain sst's.
.270 WIn is the standard .270 that has been around for many years. I have three of these and they perform very, very well. The .270 WSM is the newer Winchester Short Magnum. Shorter action with more power. It should shoot even flatter than the impressive .270 Win.
The 270 WSM is a bit faster than the 270 Win. and the bullets perform better when shot at longer ranges out of the WSM. The 270 WSM is also a shorter shell, making it faster to reload than the long action of the 270 Win.
Hornady is best factory load out there. 180 grn. is most common, but the distance your shooting matters most. Higher grns. for close shots and lower grns. for longer shots. maybe 150 grn. for over 200 yrds.
A 130 - 140 grain bullet, regardless of brand, seems to have the best all around ballistics for the .270. soft points are fine for whitetails. Hit em right with one of these and they will go down in a heap.

I would definitally say you can't go wrong with the winchester ballistic silvertips. As long as you hit that animal in the kill zone, it isn't going to go far at all! I use a 30-06 here in Az, and I have killed both deer and bull elk with the 150 gr. I don't know where you are hunting, but with a 270 you wont need anything more than 150 gr., all depends on how far you intend to shoot. It is rare to drop an elk where it stands, but I swear I did it with a lung shot last fall. Just don't gut shoot it, etc and that animal is gonna go night night. Good luck
You will need to practice with your Remington and try several different brands and loads to see what you are the most accurate with. Dropping a deer in it's tracks will not always happen. The best thing you can do for yourself, and out of respect for the animal, is to become deadly accurate and able to hit a deer's vitals area every time. You must be sure of your ability in all kinds of weather, distances and light conditions. This will only happen after you and your Remington have become "old friends" I have heard the Barnes Triple Shock Bullet is one of the most reliable bullets. I can also tell you I have never failed with Remington's CoreLokt ammo over many years. See what works best for you and stick with it.
Like all guns, try different ammo at the range and see which performs best in your gun. Since 22 ammo is cheap, you will have fun shooting and won't break your wallet. I have tried alot of different ammo, and for 22s I like CCI. Although Remington, and the other manufactures make good ammo also.
