Re: Nosler 175 LR accubond

Do you think the advertised BCs on the Accubond LRs are a little inflated? At least as far as the 175 grain is concerned. What were the velocities of the Bergers and the Accubonds?

I hope I can get them to shoot like that when I get some!

The bergers were around 2960 and the accubonds were 2989. That was the average I got. Dan

Great Shooting and good report, thanks!

It appears the ABLR and the Hunting VLD are almost identical in weight and shape and not surprising they shoot the same drops. It looks like Nosler got this bullet right if it does well in the killing department.

Re: Nosler 175 LR accubond

Awesome shooting!

I have a few boxes of the Nosler 7mm 168gr AccuBond Long Range for my twin Remington 700 Sendero SF 7mm STWs that I'm still developing a load for.

I have a few questions if you could answer I would appreciate it:

- Can you tell me what is the twist rate on the barrel?

- What was the velocity (fps) on the AccuBond Long Range bullets that measured with your magnetospeed chrono?

- Also, how far from the lands did you load the AccuBond Long Range bullets?

Thanks!

Hey Dan nice shooting, I am looking at building a 7wsm or 7/300 wsm and would just like to get your thaughts on the build.
Topics like,short action or long action,barrel lenght. Building it for hunting and long range targets. Also what was the coals of the two different bullets.
Thanks Jeremy.

Re: Nosler 175 LR accubond

I will try to remember all the questions. The barrel twist is 8. The length is 28 inches. You need to use a long action with the bergers or the accubond. I think the col was 3.120. I was shooting them .007 off the lands. That was just a number I picked to make an even number. I think it measured 3.127 so I just backed it up to 3.120. The velocity was 2989 on accubonds. Dan
