THE 270 SABI

There has always been a demand for a caliber suitable for ladies and young hunters hunting at short range. The 270 SABI is the perfect answer and with a 150gr bullet at 2350ft/sec the recoil is less than 10ft/lb. The excellent ratio between the case capacity and the exit port of the bullet enables the rifle to shoot a 100gr bullet at 3200ft/sec also making it an outstanding varmint caliber. The 270 SABI is normally a very light rifle with barrel length from 450mm.
Again it is accepted that the 270 SABI is a 308 case necked down, but the case is much smaller and of different dimensions.
Based on the formula used for the 338 SABI and the 270 SABI, 150gr bullet compares well with all calibers in the same class as shown in the section mentioned.
For both the above calibers straight brass cylinder cases are ordered from PMP and case forming and loading are done by us. We also make the die-sets for both and other calibers.
