Re: 200 grain Accubond Nosler

I think the BC being higher is potentially a result of two things, first the higher velocities that long range shooters fire the bullets at, and also the quality of the barrels and machining in the crown area combined with better tuned loads allow the bullets to fly with less coning motion.

It is not true that CD is 1 to 1 corellated with the shock wave cross section dimensions, although it is a factor. It is true that drag can diminish, with a particular design as velocity increases.

I will not discuss the boatail design issues, or go detailed in a discussion on reducing supersonic drag although there are many books and research papers published on these subjects.

    S1...just got some Accubonds for my Sako 75 300WM. Any good load data for those bullets and my rifle??
    Hopefully, I'll have time this week to try them out.
    I have some Retumbo laying around and really need to burn up.
    Thanks, ....sakofan..
    It's only rock and roll....But I like it!

    I would start at 81.0 grains of Retumbo and work up from there. The velocity is outstanding.
