Re: 200g Accubond and what powder?

My load is very close to Chris'. 95 grains of Retumbo, 3177 fps, Fed 215 primer. Velocity is very consistent and the load is very accurate. Come to think of it, it's mild enough I could go to 95.5 grains...hmmm. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] I'm also a mile away from the lands to get the rounds to fit into the magazine COL = 3.60".

Al, did the bullets exit from the elk?

Jon, no and yes. My son first shot a bull that another hunter in our crew had hit twice in the rump. We got kinda lucky on that one cause Steve shot the bull in the neck. We couldn't find where he was hit till we removed the hide. The guy wants to do a shoulder mount, the hide wasn't danaged. On the secound elk, Steve shot a cow in the spine just aft of the shoulders. Exit wound was aprox 2", blew the fur off aprox 6" of hide.
