Re: INTRODUCING Accubond Long Range

This is very good news. I would love to shoot 190gr Accubonds versus my 190gr SMK's......

Hopefully they'll work in my Remington 700 Sendero SF 7mm STW that have a 9 1/4 twist.

I would love to try out all three 7mm bullets weights.

Developed through a combination of bullet manufacturing techniques that are unique to Nosler, the design of the AccuBond®-LR allows for the highest B.C. possible in a bullet of the same caliber and weight. Designed with an optimum performance window ranging from 3,200fps to 1,300fps, the unique tapered jacket geometry and proprietary
bonding process of the AccuBond®-LR allow it to expand rapidly for effective energy transfer and significant tissue damage while retaining sufficient weight to ensure deep penetration into the vitals. The AccuBond® bonding process allows the AccuBond®-LR to perform reliably on game throughout the entire velocity range, eliminating the problem of being “too close” often encountered with other high-B.C. bullets. The high-performance boat tail, long ogive, and polymer tip combine to make the AccuBond®-LR the sleekest, flattest- shooting, bonded, hunting bullet ever created. The ogive of the AccuBond®-LR is designed to provide excellent accuracy in a wide variety of firearms without the necessity of being loaded close to or in contact with the lands. The new AccuBond®-LR will be packaged in 100 count boxes, and will initially be available in the following calibers and weights.



These are awesome! Nosler is going to take the long range market by storm.
Way to go Nosler.

OMG!!!!!! I hope this is not some sort of early April fools day joke. This would make me soooooo happy.

Re: INTRODUCING Accubond Long Range

The 190 would sure make a 1000 yard 308 win bullet from hell...

I was thinking about putting a 300wsm together but not sure if I will if the 190 has at least a .570 BC. At 5000'/59 degrees I can get 1000 foot pounds at 1000 yards with expansion.
