200 Accubond and H50-BMG

I Tried some 200 grain Accubonds in the 300 RUM today. Powder used was 95.0-97.0 grains of H-50BMG. Velocity was 3005-3120 F/sec. I am using H-50 BMG due to my rifle generating high preassure with other powders.

Accuracy was sub .5"

The holes at 100 yards were perfectly straight despite using only a 12 twist. Does anybody have any experiance with the 200 Accubond and the 12 twist?? Will they stay stable out to 600 or even 800 yards?

I also tried RL-25 with the 165 XBT/XLC. 90.0 @ 3345 FPS. Easy extraction. 90.0 and the 178 AMAX was 3326 FPS. So far the accuracy looks good with those, but will know for sure with more firings.

Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (how bad your last shot was, how big the group is going to be, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.

I too have had wonderful luck with H50BMG. I don't see a problem with stability but the best way to find out is to shoot at 250 to 300yds. If stable there, will be stable till the bullet hits the dirt.
