I dont have a lot of experience with center fired long guns so maybe this a dumb question. I bought a Ruger American in the 270 Win. I purchased many different boxes of ammo to find what it likes. The accuracy was very lackluster with all the least expensive ammo (most soft points),130-140 grain bullets. Found it really liked 130 gr barnes TTSX and Hornady 120 gr ultra-lite (both ballistic tip). I would like to try to find more options that will produce acceptable accuracy. Am I wrong to assume a more expensive soft point will produce better results then the less expensive SP's or should I stay with Ballisitic tip ammo? I hate to keep buying ammo that doesnt work out especially the more expensive rounds so thats why I ask. Also I have been reloading pistol rounds for a bit now and will start reloading for this gun, does anyone have some favorite recipes or even preferred powder for this round ( I know not all guns act the same but figured it would give me a starting point to try).
