My buddy gets 3000fps with 160 Accubond in his little 22" Mod 7. He raves on there performance on game.
You are right, the Accubond is a very good bullet, my only concern is that because they are a harder bullet they will not expand at longer ranges as well as the likes of the A-Max and Berger VLD
Of interest I use 64.5gn of VV N165 with my 160 Accubonds and 162 A-Max and the A-Max shoot 2 MOA flatter at 700 yards. Would be interesting to see what the VLD can do.
I have emailed Berger as suggested. I hear they are releasing a reloading manual soon
