Re: 30-06 Elk loads
I got to try out RL17 and a 200 grain accubond. My best velocity was 2730 with 54 grains of powder. Accuracy was best at 53.5 at around 5/8 inches groups, velocity was down to 2684. It was very windy here in western PA today so I need to verify my groupings under better conditions. Recoil was stout compared to the 168 grain NBTs I shot earlier. If the accuracy holds up when I practice again I will use the Accubonds for my hunt this fall. My rifle was a 22" Savage 116.

Reason: Added barrel length.
