Accubond LR Test Results

Ok. What gives? Iíve searched and all I get on the subject is ďIím sure going to test the Accubond LRs when I get mine.Ē

Iíve been reading this for 6 months. So where are the results? Has no one tested these yet? Iím most interested in the terminal performance (expansion and weight retention) at 1,300 and 3,200 fps. Donít care so much about the BCs as you can tell by looking that they will be good enough.

    MMERSS,

    Thanks for pointing me to your post and thanks for some very encouraging test results. It was about what I expected on BCs. You make a good point on the expansion of the 210 gr AB Long Range in the 300 RUM. I don't need 1,500 yards either but I might need 900. I also don't like to blow the crap out of something up close thus my interest in the AB LR terminal performance. I have some .277 cal 150 grain AB LRs showing up in a few days. The 6.5mm, 7mm, and 30 cals are on back order but I expect to have them also before long. I plan to test expansion at the advertised velocity extremes of 1,300 and 3,200 fps and will post results. I'm leaving town for a while but should be able to get testing done before August rolls around. Based on what you did, I expect good results.
