6.5mm 140g ACCUBOND??????

I was looking at the midway website and they have a 140g ACCUBOND listed as not avalible yet? I went over to NOSLER site and there is nothing to be found. Has anyone else herd anything?

Yea it exists. I think its new this year.

Nosler doesn't list it under their accubond selection yet - a tad slow on website updates... hes a link to their news article about it... they don't mention its BC value though...

Nosler: bullets, ammunition, rifles, brass, and reloading data.

Nope,

I've been looking at a lot of diffrent bullets for the 6.5mm to use in my 6.5-06AI that I'm building this year, and I've only seen a 130g Nosler accubond.

A 140g Accubond would bee really cool though. It would be very useful for those shooting a .264 Win Mag as well.

Well Jerry,

That's great news! I'll have to look at them more closely when they come out. If I can find any.

Re: 6.5mm 140g ACCUBOND??????

Well, that would be an interesting choice. Would love to try them in my 6.5mm AM loaded to 3550 fps.

If they get them out as quickly as they did the 250 gr 338 Accubond and the 300 gr 375 cal, we will be shooting them around the fall of 2010!!!

To bad these companies don't get the bullets in stock and ready to ship before they release the information.
