Re: Bullet fail...Accubond CT

It's a good idea, to not hunt with ammo you have no confidence in. Good luck on the hunt.

    Your making an excellent case for rolling you own ammo!!!!! I guarantee you load a 140 Accubond under a stiff load of Retumbo and you'll be putn the smack down on game!

    We do handload for everything else, just not this particular rifle. It seems to have trouble cycling handloads and most factory ammo cycles fine.

    No way the Accubond would mushroom like that just from going through a .004 piece of plastic jug. No way. This thread is going no where. Sorry, just my opinion.

    Hand load and duplicate the factory ammo specs. Perhaps you need to chamfer the outside of the case mouth to feed better.

    Just a thought.

    Every deer my family or I have shot at this year with Accubond has been DRT. It has worked flawlessly. You must have gotten a bad batch.
