Re: 300g scenars or 250g AB

mainly shooting deer and wild brumbies in hilly terrain and wind is always a problem. was looking for something with alittle higher B.C for those longer shots, michael informed me of nosslers 300g AB coming out in 2012 so im keen to give them a run.
how would a 225g go in a 1:9 barrel?
is that what yours is?

Re: 300g scenars or 250g AB

A 9 twist is WAY more than enough to handle the 225. Most 300 grainers will work in an 11x and most guys running big 338s are using 10x. Some are using 9.3. 9 twists are more for some of the mono metal heavies.

My twist is 1-10.

Re: 300g scenars or 250g AB

I used a 250 ab on an elk at 1202 this year recovered bullet weight 165 grains, broke spine just behind the scapula and was under the hide on off shoulder.
Only thing I don't like looking at the pic of the 300 ab it looks like the same old accubond, this one appears to have a LOOOONG bearing surface. They should have sculpted it a bit.

Re: 300g scenars or 250g AB

nice shot, sounds like the 250AB handled it fine out past the 1000 mark, dont know much about elk but presume they have a thick hide, especially at 1200yds. dont get elk around here. your right about the 300AB but will def give them a try when they come out, till then it sounds like the 250 will handle brumbies at those longer ranges fine.

now just need me toy to hurry up and arrive.......
