Re: New accubond lr

I suspect the BC, the 1300fps expansion, and the delivery date were determined at happy hour, but I'm likely in the end to try them. I can't help myself. I'd agree with Broz Rich, if you aren't sold likely there is more explaining to do.

    I heard their BCs were developed at muzzle velocities less than 100 fps... in case anyone plans to shoot them out of sling shots.

    as far as I'm concerned it really doesn't matter to me, what the true BC is versus calculated. These bullets are far better than the original AB, and I have been wishing Nosler would do this for the last 3 years. I now have a better option than the original AB.

    It will be interesting to shoot these new LR bullets, I kinda think that maybe they will be better at long range but loose what most guys like about the Accubond up close. I know I can drive the 270 bullet over the recommended top end with my WSM and I'm wondering if we then have Ballistic tip performance which will not be acceptable!!!

    Shoving aside all my negativity, I still think they may well be a usefull bullet, as some of you do. I'm thinking the G1 may be more around the .670 range.......Rich

    Maybe they dropped them off of a tower and they maintained their trajectory clear to the ground.....Rich

    Is this what you are all refering too?

    Accubond - Nosler - Bullets, Ammunition, Rifles, Brass, Reloading Data, Hunting, Shooting, Reloading, Load Data


    Would like to see a 140 6.5. The 129 is not much different than a Berger, even though I really like the AB for hunting. It would be great to see an AB 140 with high bc.
