Re: NOSLER ACCUBONDS at 1000 yards on goats.

fiftydriver,
I agree the 200gr accubond might be better
on elk at 500 yds. than the 180's but they
shot so good that I have not got around to
testing the 200's yet in a 300wm.at 500yds.
the accubond 180's shoot way better groups
than partitions with a higher B.C.
Nosler Accubond's have just made there
partitions obsolete,they perform just as well
or better at a betterB.C.

Re: NOSLER ACCUBONDS at 1000 yards on goats.

brian b and Iron Worker , Thanks for the replys . I am also shooting a 300rum using Win brass and Federal benchrest primers . Are you guys loading them anywhere close to the lands or just to fit the mag . That may be part of the difference that I am noticing , with the smk's I had them loaded out almost to the lands and when I switched to the accubonds I shortened them up more for a hunting load so the mag could be used .

Please tell me where one would get Winchester brass in 300 RUM? I didn't even know they produce it.

Re: NOSLER ACCUBONDS at 1000 yards on goats.

Brian B,

Please do not think I would not feel totally comfortable using the 180 gr version on elk because that is not true and I feel you have a totally adaquate elk bullet.

As I stated, at 500 yards I would feel fine with a 180 gr Ballistic Tip for a chest shot and the 180 gr ACcubond is a far better heavy game bullet then this one.

As with you, if I tested a load that shot as well as yours, I would probably save the time and money and stick with the 180 gr load as well.

The Grass is always greener mentality is not always a good way to look at rifles.

I much prefer the "if it ain't broke don't fix it" theory.

I was not questioning you at all on your load developement. If I were to develope loads for the 300 WSM I would start with the 180 gr version first as well, better ballance of weight for this case volume.

With the 300 RUM, I would start with the 200 gr version, just because I feel this is a better balance for the big RUM case, this was my only criteria in my posting I would use the 200 gr version first.

Good Shooting, let us know how the load works on game this season!
