Hornady Interbond

I am wondering if anyone is using these bullets and how is the Accuracy? I was told they are junk by a guy that works at one of the sporting Good stores here. He claims he tried them in a couple of his rifles and they would not shoot at all. Anyone using them?

Re: Hornady Interbond

Tried them in two rifles last year and came to the conclusion that they were junk. Two inch groups out of guns that later shot 1/2" groups with Accubonds.
A friend of mine at Barnes Bullets ran them through a couple consistency tests not available to reloaders and said it was one of the worst bullets they had tested. However, some people who have tried them more recently say that they are shooting better now. Maybe they fixed their problems.

Re: Hornady Interbond

Had some first production bullets to test. They were match bullet accurate. Slightly longer then the SST's of equal weight, they will have a higher BC then the SST's which in turn out fly all SP hunting bullets of same cal and weight.

The only way to know is to try them in your rifle.

Conversely, I have never been able to get Barnes bullets to shoot. Many have though...

Re: Hornady Interbond

I shoot the 30 cal 150 interbonds between 3750 fps and 3800 fps in my 30-338 laupa imp, and they work great. Even at those speeds they retain 75 percent of their mass in a perfect mushroom. They are a excellent killing bullet I have used them on white tails form 10 yards to 450 yards with devestating results. I don't like hornadys but they shoot in most of my guns and they kill. My over bore 30 laupa will shoot .25 inch with the interbonds, so I am very happy. Try the nosler and the hornady and shoot which ever one your rifle likes.

Re: Hornady Interbond

I have never shot game with the Interbonds, but I've loaded a great number of them for guides that prefer them and ask for them by name. If that means anything, it does not seem to be an objection from them over accuracy only that they like them because they preform well on game.

Re: Hornady Interbond

I am working on a load with the 150 gr .308 IB in my .30-06. I am very pleased with the results. Using steady sticks and a high sitting position for my comfort I am shooting 1/2 to 3/4 inch groups at 100 and haven't papered them at other yardages yet, but they have very explosive results on jack rabbits out at 50, 75, and 310 yards. I am anxious to use these on my antelope this fall to see their performance on big game. I am sure I'll be pleased though.
