Re: Accubonds Deforming

Another point in favor of the single shot receiver. No pun intended

Those tips seem pretty solid. I'm surprised that this issue has come to the surface.

I'll be keeping my good eye on this thread.

Thanks

    I talked with Nosler they said they have seen this in the bigger mags but was surprised it was happening with the MB on the rifle. I will post pics later.

    Re: Accubonds Deforming

    I started using the polymer tip bullets nearly 20 yrs ago to stop the deformation of bullet tips in the magazine. Lead tip bullets would flatten terribly. I have always noticed some flattening of the tips on the bullets left in the mag. Old timers used to put a piece of leather in the front of the mag to pad the bullets tips on recoil.

    I will be anxious to see your photos.

    In my 300 Wby, when I fire a shot with shells in the magazine, I get a slight flattening of the plastic tip on the shells in the magazine. I am using 180 gr Accubonds. Its not severe, but I'll bet it is changing the BC enough that you would see the impact at long range. I have been meaning to try some of these deformed shells at 4 or 500 yds but haven't got around to it yet.

    In all three instances of breakage I have witnessed, the rifles had muzzle brakes.

    I have since heard from a friend with a Rem 700 7mm Rem Mag with no brake that he had a tip brake off of a 140 in the magazine last antelope season.

    I have shot thousands of ballistic tips and never seen this. Kinda came as a surprise to me.
