I'd like to experiment with some lighter (110gr maybe even 95gr) Barnes TTSX bullets for my .270. Of the powders I have on hand to work with are CFE223 and Varget. I'm shooting a bolt action Savage 111 with a 1 in 10 twist.
My question is which powder is would be more ideal? Most of the load data out there is more focused on the 130/150gr bullets. I was considering picking up a pound RL-17.
What is the general rule of thumb, lighter bullet faster powder or lighter bullet slower powder?
Any advice here would be appreciated so I'm not wasting time and money experimenting.
