Accubond LR in hand

i recieved my order of lr accubond 2nds today. they are .308 dia and 210 grain.

i took some pictures and measurements (best i could without fancy measuring devices.

one thing to note is that these have a longer bearing surface than 210 VLD i believe.

bearing surface measurements... as precise as i could get...

210 LRAB= 0.597
210 VLD= 0.573
215 HYBRID= 0.545

one thing i notice is the very long boattail compared to the original accubond, also the sharp transition from bearing to boattail.

the pics compare 210 vld, 210 hybrid, and LRAB 210.
teh one with another accubond is a 7mm 140 grain to compare shape.

    Cool!! I am actually pretty impressed with nosler, i dont think they will hit .73 but i think they will land around .640-.650. Should be very interesting, let me know if you happen to stumble across anymore.

    Biggest fail of 2014 so far... http://www.longrangehunting.com/foru...ea-ftf-128972/

    My guess on W3P .308 230 Grain Bullet: G1 .740-.755

    I would be interested in trying some as well.

    Also, what makes them "seconds"?

    they say that they are cosmetic blemishes. show some marks. lots show lines in the metal on the nose behind the tip.

    That does look pretty severe on the back end of the bullet.
