i found a box of the Nosler accubond long range in 150gr have shot presure groups to see if the rifle liked them. have come up with a 3 shot raged hole load but have about 50 bullets left to get use to this load for a Idaho limited entry Deer hunt in October.
has anyone seen any on a shelve?? i cannot find any on the internet or any shelves around here.
What was the load data, i.e., brass, powder, primer, OAL...?
And did you measure the velocity of that load?
Here you go:
NoslerŽ AccuBondŽ Long-Range Rifle Bullets : Cabela's
sorry for the delay but to many irons in the fire lately,
brass : remington
powder: H1000 84.3 grains
AOL: 3.645 max in my mag is 3.660
aver fps: 3315
i did fins 2 more boxes of the nosler LR 150 gr. at a local shop. they had them on order but were told they were back order then they showed up.
this load groups great even after serveral reounds bown the tube.. if i can fold it it groups 3 in a raged hole at 100. have shot a couple of groups at 200 at about 5/8 in group.. that gun can di it's job i almost always have a problem.
the range has a 12x12 in plate at 450 dialed the scope and had 3 at about a 2 in group. first time then the secound group was bigger but total my fault i called each bulter to the sport and he said it was right were i call it.
this load is going on a Idaho deer hunt and for cow elk here in Utah. should be a fun season..
