Reloading it for 40 years now. Have used from 110 grains to 170 grains bullets. The 130 and 140 grains bullets will give you good results. I recommend Hornady SST bullets, very accurate and not that expensive. What would you like to reload for? And I have no clue how to PM you.
I am going to start reloading for my 270 also. Got some of the lyman carbide dies on order and picked up some 140 sierra gameking bullets. Have some h350, reloader 17, and imr 4064. Hopefully I will be able to make up a good cartridge.

First off, let me write i have not reloaded a 270 for over 50 year, but them powder you mentioned do not seem like proper 270 powders to me.
When i was a boy, Jack O'Connor was whom i revered. Right or wrong, from him i learned that when shooting 130g bullet from the 270, one could just fill the case with 4831, strike it off, install the bullet, and be good to go. This worked for us. Back then 4831 was 'real' surplus, and probably a tad slower than today's 4831. Today's 4831 would be a good 270 powder. Another powder that should be excellent in the 270 is Reloader 22. If i had a 270, i might wish to give VV N160, or N560 a try. Good luck, and have fun to the both of you.
I started this thread when there was no .270 ammo on the shelf to buy...I bought some high dollar Barnes ammo from Bass pro.....Since then .270 ammo is about the only kind that is available at my local walmart......I would like to have some custom reloads with Barnes tsx 150gn.... Greenhorn
