Just about to get pretty older Mark 5 chambered in 270 Winchester.  Im looking for some ammo that you folks have had success with both in terms of accuracy and hunting.   I will probably eventually try reloading but Id like to start with factory ammo for zeroing scope and getting used to the round, and then for targeting hogs and whitetail

Welcome to the Nation IFR. When I was testing ammo for accuracy, my 270 Win. didn't say no to any of the ammo I tried, it just liked some better then others. I setteled on Hornady 140 gr. BTSP, but the 130 gr. Superformance matched the 140 gr. ammo for best group size. I haven't changed anything in the last four years, deer and hogs out to 200 yards have not been a problem.

I had good luck with Barnes Vortx 130 gr ttsx ammo, it was accurate out of my 270 win and worked great on whitetails.
