Re: Accubond

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...
I'm glad you like them. I'll sell you mine.
Bergers shoot better than ABs in all the rifles I've tried them in, but some others can shoot better. My .260 likes 140gr SSTs better then ABs or Bergers.

Yup, straight up dude if it wont shoot a 180 Accubond over 80gr of RL-22 or 84gr of 7828 you have a gun problem not a load problem.

What is your load?
Unless its an older Weatherby? If so you have a 12 twist and need to drop back to 165s or perhaps a 180 Partition.

Good luck!
