Re: INTRODUCING Accubond Long Range

Well, I've always had to choose between the bc bullet I wanted, and the terminal performance preferred. Have been using 160 accubonds in my 7mm rum, a little more weight and a better bc will make it go from an ok compromise to allmost perfect.

Glad to see nosler push for these, Only can hope they are to the quality of all the other nosler products I currently use.

When will these make it to the shelves, would like to haul a few boxes home.

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.
It also looks real good for the old '06...if a 24" barrel can muster 2,700 fps without exceeding 63k psi in a modern bolt action, great things could happen. (I'm thinking about 57 grains of H4350 should do the trick)

I'm betting those BC's are computer generated...but even if they are off by 10%...you still get .574.

Makes the 30-06 a solid 800 yard hunting caliber, even for elk...and deer, 1,200 yards...still well above supersonic, good expansion speed...

I was just thinking the same thing, I'll have to find some and whip them out at a mile and see how they fair!!!

Should be able to get a 24" 06 up to 2700 with a 190. I regularly run 190's at 2660-2700+ in 24 and 26" 308's.

Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (where the shot goes, how big the group is, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.

EXCELLENT...I haven't loaded any bullets over 175 grains in my '06 yet...only had it a year...

That really is great news....
