30 cal 200gr. Accubond

I have been trying to load up some 200 gr. accubonds for my 300wsm. I am using 60gr. of H4350 seated about .05 off the lands. They show real good accuracy around 1/4 MOA for 3 shots but then i will get one that flys off about an inch. I cant really understand what is happening but i have been having a problem with the tips of the accubonds breaking off. Anyone else have this problem? Any suggestions to getting rid of that flyer?

You mean the plastic tips are breaking off? When? Under recoil in the magazine? While reloading, seating the bullets, or simply handling them? I've handled a lot of BTs and Accubonds and never had the tips break off.

Re: 30 cal 200gr. Accubond

well when i opened the box 2 tips had simply broken off. and while reloading them i had no problems but just handling the rounds they seem to break off really easy. I could see them possibly breaking off while chambering the round causing poor accuracy.

Post deleted by Dick - ss7mm. You're not getting off to a very good start. That's not what LRH is all about. Try again but remember, 2 strikes and you're out.

That reply really anwsers his question to his problem. Hopefully you get the ban stick as no one here needs what you have offered.

Perhaps you got a bad box that never got caught going through QC . I have loaded and shot quite a few 200 Abonds and never experienced the problem you are having. Perhaps you could try purchasing a different box with a different lot number to see if the problem you are having repeats itself.
