Re: NOSLER ACCUBONDS at 1000 yards on goats.
One other thing I would like to mention about the Accubond is an experience I had with them in a very worn barrel. I have a .300 win mag that has roughly 1300 rounds down it. All were 180 ballistic tips. This gun routinely shot 1/4" groups at 100 yards with that bullet the majority of it's life, but when I got around 1100, the groups opened up to about 7/8". I went 2 years without shooting another cloverleaf. I was just about to place an order for a new barrel when I tried the 180 Accubond. As brian b stated in an earlier post, the Accubond seemed to be about .020" longer and that must have made the difference because now it's back down to 1/4"! I'm so happy! [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] It also likes the exact same load and shoots the same point of impact. Fiftydriver has said in a previous post that he was replacing all his loads that worked with bt's to ab's. Right on! I think I'll do the same!
If it's not far, it's boring.
