Nosler 175 LR accubond

I got some of the 175's this week. I wanted to try to compare them to the berger 180vld hunting as close as I could. I loaded some with the load I was shooting in the bergers and shot. I was using my magneto speed chrno. The bergers shot about like always. The accubonds a little better with no signs of pressure.I knew the bergers were at max load. I went up .3 grs to 62.5 of H 1000. The group at 100yds was between 1/4 and 3/8's of a inch. Today I went to my friends range and shot out to 1000yds. The best I got the bergers was 5 inches. The accubonds 3 inches. I shot several more groups the worst with the bergers was just over 7 inches. The accubonds was 4 and 3/8's. the accubonds seemed to be a little more consistent. The conditions were good, overcast with little wind. I tried to be as fare as I could with each bullet. If I thought it was not a good shot I would do it over. I don't know if if the accubond are better but today in my gun they out shot the bergers. I am going to try to test them a deer next weekend. Hope they kill as good as they shoot. the first one is the 3 inch group with the accubonds. There are 2 touching and 3 inches to the left. The second one is the 5 inch bergers. Dan

    Almost the same on each. Don't remember the numbers but I never changed the dial to shoot each target. I think I was at 20.6 moa at 1000yds. Dan
