Re: nosler's lr accubond

Tough to tell how they will really perform compared to the originals. I will try the 210's and 175's as soon as I can. Time will tell. I wish that they had released them earlier so i could use them in Africa in two weeks.

    Keep in mind that these are packed in boxes of 100 vs. the regular Accubonds being packed 50 per box. Makes the pricing comparable, you just get more product.

    If anyone finds them let me know there will be a finders fee if I can buy them these bullets will be ausomse the ab is great and shoots great it not very picky I know the lr Is a differnt design but if it holds together better than theberger it will take over the market it will be a Target bullet but with a little more retention. We have harvested blacktail deer mule deer blackbear and bighorn sheep with the bergers over 700 yards and have always wanted little more retention this bullet should be the anser we have to custom 300 normas being built just for these bullets so now we need some let me know please

    Like I said shortly after I first heard of the new LR Accubond being developed, if they perform as advertised they have just really raised the game a couple of notches when it comes to "best long range hunting bullet".

    If they do, this whole game is about to get much more interesting and stay that way for 3-5 years while the other hunting vld makers are playing catch up and trying to "one up" Nosler.

    What intrigues me most, is their claim that their new LR AB will still expand and perform down to 1,300 fps. The current AB is advertised as needing 1,800 fps to perform (I think the Bergers are in the same range). So if their claim is true, then those of us using AB's just had our terminal bullet performance extended by another 200-300 yards downrange. As always the proof is in the pudding.
