The gun is skim bedded with marine-tex an 1.5" or so past the recoil lug into the barrel channel. The gun has a timney 510 trigger installed set at 2.5lbs. The .7-1moa is what I achieved after doing all that. Before was about 1.5-2moa!

What are the "ALR" bullets? Yes I am setup to reload. Just bought the fgmm for convenience and to see what the gun was capable of. Those shots on the gong were at 600 yards. First five shots out of the gun at 600, all five hits. Two in the same crater.

What is different about these new bullets versus the original accubond??? Are they similar to berger's?

They're a lot sleeker and have a very aggressive boat tail than the original ACCUBOND and are easier to expand. They have a much less velocity requirement for expansion. Nosler stated 1300 FPS. From the results guys have been seeing, its quite possible that 1300' is a reality. They also are making them in non traditional hunting weights. For 30 cal they're offering 190 and 210 grain. The published BCs are way high but the real world BC of the 210 is very close to the 210 berger VLD. They still have a plastic tip but they are softer than the original.

With that in mind, a 190 with a decent BC and low velocity for expansion requirement is a win/win for the 308. Maybe not so much for a larger magnum but definitely for a slower chambering. The Amax has always been a great 308 bullet since they expanded at lower velocities but lacked a decent BC until the 208 was released. It's still a great option for the 308 but I like a bit less recoil than what the 208s generate, especially at the charge weights it takes to make using them worthwhile. I find the 190 grain class of bullets to be a solid balance between recoil, accuracy, windage and energy. Also the 190 in an 11x or 11.25x barrel is about as optimum as is gets for stability factors. Not too fast, not too slow. 11.25 works ok for the 210s at 308 velocities but is on the low side.

You wouldn't happen to have a good starting load for me to try with the 190's would you?
