info, anyway, do any of you have any good load data for the 168 grain berger vld? I have dropped the idea of the accubonds after very
deep thought and playing with the ballistic calculator, finding out that the bergers shoot just as flat as the 140 accubonds even though they arent going as fast (gotta love that B.C)
and buck the wind better than anyting I have shot or even looked at, but seeing how this will be my new deer load and there is didly squat on the net for load data for this bullet. I was wondering if you could help me out thanks alot. oh ya iam shooting a remmy 700 in 7mm rem mag.
I'm doing the opposite of you. I tried the Bergers and I couldn't seat them out far enough to still fit in the mag, so I'm switching to the 140 Accubonds.
I checked the ballistics first, and the Accubonds are a lot (10+ inches) flatter out to 600, with just a touch more wind drift, and a little less energy. So I'm not sure where you got your data from...
I checked several different bullets and the 140 Accubonds were pretty much the best all-around, now I just hope they shoot good out of my rifle.
