I a 300 win mag that would not shoot the accubonds, but it would shoot the sciroccos very well. Both are seating depth sensitive in most applications.

Nonya, you might want to try the 165gr Hornady Interbonds. Apparently rifles either hate or love these bullets. I am fortunate that mine loves them and I have since quit looking for the perfect bullet for my 30.06. I've killed a bunch of deer, antelope, and one bear with them and the performance is exceptionally good. It's not an eat right up to the hole type of bullet as it will cause some damage, but it's a kill them right now bullet, and that's what I prefer.

Im shooting the 165 interbonds right now,they shoot ok.I ended up with the 168 gr A MAXs,SW was out of everything that had a .308 on it except them.Id like to know what kind of powder and charge you are useing to get those speeds as well,mine are well below that with a compressed load.

I've been very happy with the Bergers as a hunting bullet and it has a great BC. I also have had good results with Accubond. Overall the 168 VLD would get my vote.
Good luck.

Sierra 180SPBT/2630fps

Is the most accurate hunting bullet in my .308W. It shoots in 0.6" five shot group and expands well up to 350yards. The core separation is the main problem with this otherwise accurate bullet.
