Certain rifles don't like certain bullets so you have to find a bullet that they like.
It sounds like you have already found a bullet style that it likes.
Don't sell the Ballistic tips short they work well at long range and the Accubond does very well.
Don't fight the free bore and load standard length rounds with standard ogives. (The SMKs have
the same ogive and have a proven track record).
Just my opinion.
