Thanks Slee. Sounds like you have a really good load also! I will have to order some Barnes bullets and give it a try. I have Accubonds coming tomorrow which I will run through my load testing process. More to come!

No problem,

And good luck with the Accubonds. I wanted to use them as my hunting bullet, but after a few hundred rounds of testing I could not find a load that was less then 2moa.

Please post your results. Always interesting to see how other guys make out.

Thanks for the response Jim. I have 180 grain accubonds coming tomorrow but will work with 7828 SSC and H4831 for the time being as I don't have any H1000 on hand. I will post my results as I get them.

I just finished up a mk 5 in 300wby mag,this turned into one of the most accurate rifles I have ever worked on. Im using the new 197 botw vld and 86 grains of h1000 im at work right now so I dont remember the complete reciepe but if you are interested, I will get the info posted when I get home. I do know this thing will stack bullets at 480 yards and shoot sub moa at 1000! Jay
