200 grain accubond BC

I looked on noslers page for BC for 200 accubonds
They list AB .588 PT .481
what is AB and PT?
are these good numbers?

    Well .588 isn't to shabby for a hunting bullet. .481 isn't great, but for a solid base design and if your not shooting past 600 yards or so, they'll still get the job done.

    The 200 gr Accubond is my favorite hunting bullet for the 300 Ultra, it is wonderfully accurate and does a number on game out to 1000 yards. The .588 BC is a fair number it does not compare to the heavier matchkings but makes up for it's smaller BC with huge bullet terminal ballistics. I recommend them to anyone with a 300 Ultra that I build in a packing weight rifle.

    I would believe that PT stands for Partition, and .481 is it's BC. AS the others said, the Accu-Bond is .588.

    Yea, looks like a funny way to reference the different bullets .. i.e.
    BT/AB(.507) PT(.474)
    Means Ballistic Tip® / AccuBond® same BC
    Partition® is PT .. which has alower BC and they are trying to indicate this in a paracryptic manor ( I may have just made up a new word).
    Good Luck
