    I got some GG, but I have been focusing on the 115 Berger VLD's. I am gonna shoot this weekend, I will try some of the Accubonds if I get a chance. Any load you could recommend???

    Thanks
    Steve

    I have only shot about ten of them so far. More or less just to see how they shot with an existing load. I simply dropped the 115gr PT and substituted the 110gr AB. It didn't do bad but has room for improvement. Here is a pic of my first four shots at 100 yds. from a totally clean barrel. They came in nicely but the velocity wasn't up there as I had hoped it would be.


    I am looking forward to giving them a run with a little quicker powder. But that is part of the fun.

    Re: 110 gr .25 Accubonds??

    Well, I am using reworked 30-06 Norma brass and have tried every charge of RL22 from 49 to 57.5 in half grain increments and IMR4831 from 46 to 54.5 in half grain increments with Fed210gm's and the Accubonds seated as far out as they can be and have yet to even get a 1 inch group at 100 yards. All brass has been given the whole match prep treatment and yada yada yada. The gun is starting to irritate me. I believe that since all the groups are roughly the same size, and I have had 5 loads with sd's in the single digits, these odd weight bullets might just stink. They maybe should have stuck to the 100 grain or 117 or 115 weights normally used.

    Just wondering if anyone has gotten them to shoot as accurately as the ballistic tips or Sierras?

    I know a stiff load of RL22 and B-tips is like chocolate syrup on vanilla ice cream with this gun, but my customer wants to shoot AB's. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

    Well, normally RL22 or N165 works well in 25-06's with b-tips, but I have nothing to write about the AB's thus far in the accuracy topic!

    GG the 25 cal Accubonds have not been impressive at all.
    Johnnyk's sendero is getting them just under 1 moa at 100 yards and thats terrible for that rifle which is normally half and under half moa for every bullet he has put through it! I think they dropped the ball on the 25 cal unAccubonds somewhere!
