    You have enough case capacity to handle all commercial available 30s up to the 230 gr. Why not try a higher BC bullet in the 200gr+ if you have components available. The list can be quite large and some of my favorites are the Berger Hunting line, A-Max and Sierra Match King along with Accubond (maybe the 200 Accubond will work a little better).

    What he said has worked for me.

    In my experience Accubonds need a bit of a jump to the lands. Back off a couple of thousands and see what you get.

    +1. All rifles are different but I have also found this to be true. I have a 300WSM that is magazine length limited and dictates 180AB's 30 thou off the lands. I was surprised at how well they shoot. I have backed them off in other rigs as well and have seen the same effect.

    What is your barrel twist and what type of shooting/hunting are you looking to do? Also, what types of groups are you currently shooting, and out of what set-up? The more detail you can provide the better!

    Don't feel bad, I couldn't get them to shoot either.

    Accubond are EXCELLENT bullets.

    There is all kinds of weird stuff in this world, but generally speaking if you cant get Accubond to shoot I don't see how you'll get Berger to shoot. I shoot Berger in my 338 and my 300 rum and they're great but it was always easier and faster to get the Accubond to shoot. The only reason I shoot Berger is because of the higher BC, but that seems to be changing...
