I'm getting an average/uncorrected 3199fps MV from the 200 gr Accubond and 95.5 gr of Retumbo, lit with a Federal 210m primer. It is shooting an honest .75" and sometimes does better. My dad used my rifle with this load two weeks ago to take a Wyoming Antelope at a laser ranged 852 yds.
Are you against the lands or away from it aways with that load? I seated some about .180" deeper to get ready to hunt with and lost about 70 fps from the ones touching the lands that I tested PSI and MV on in the beginning. I'm guessing now my load is just above 55K PSI with them seated deeper.
I am away from the lands a good bit as they won't fit in the magazine seated out. This particular load is .096" off the lands. I haven't tried them seated out as it would make the rifle a single shot... [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]
Remingtonman, the 200g Accubonds worked just great for us at 3100fps. We took 2 mullies and 2 elk with it last week. Both elk were shot in the spine, about 7" was destroyed. The mullies were shot quartering away, one at 100yrds, the other at 240yrds. Both bullets entered just infront of the hindquarters, exited just behind the front shoulder. Two ribs were destroyed on the entrance, on my mullie there was a hole thru one lung I could put my small finger thru (7/16"). All critters were one shot stops.
Forgot to mention, I'm using IMR7828. Load woun't do you much good-rifle has a tight neck/short throat.
It looks like 92g is by far the best for accuracy, but is not as fast as I would like the 200g to be going accurately. 3100fps isn't bad, but I am looking more at 3200fps and good groups. Maybe H-1000 just wont do it. Is there anybody using the 200g Accubond at 3200fps and getting .5-.75" groups? I was thinking of using Retumbo or RL-25. I am wanting to throw a quick elk load together with the 200g Accubond because I am having second thoughts about using the 200g SMK on elk. The recovered bullet from the bear I shot at 250 yards weighed a mere 20 grains and about all that was left was the base of the bullet. Thanks for any replys.
