That would be nice. I'm looking at the 175 grain for my 284 win build, we'll see how she shoots with the 168 grain Barnes LRX first though.

The reason I say that is because they advertise the seating depth is not as critical as normal vld's. ......Rich

Rich this is what I was thinking too. But the Nosler people have not confirmed this yet, also I think that Berger tried to make a bonded vld before but not sure. If they are hybrid bonded tipped bullets they would be interesting to see how they perform on game at long range. Also I wonder what the lowest expansion velocity is? Only time will tell, I sure hope it doesn't take as long as the 6mm accubond took to come out. I hope Nosler will make an effort to cater to the lRH crowd and make heavy cal. Bullets in the Lr accubond for everyone with a fast twist barrel. Let's see what Nosler says about them when they release um to the public, hopefully it's not as bad as Barnes LRX didn't really make as big a splash as they planned.

Re: Nosler Accubond Long Range Pricing

I think Barnes screwed up with the 6.5mm, they should have come up with at least a 140 gr LRX... just as Nosler should with the ALR ! actually Nosler needs to come up with a 150 or even 160 gr ALR to really cater to the LRH folks, even Norma has realized the need for a heavy 6.5mm for LR, they have redesigned their awesome bonded 156 gr. Oryx with a boat tail shape improving the BC values on the bullet, I just hope they have also improved the front of the bullet as well, no clue as to when that bullet will be available to reloaders.

All the same I really like the sounds of the .30 cal ALR's, hopefully the BC's prove to be somewhat close to the advertised #'s, a 210 gr ALR starting out at 3250 fps with those bc's will stay on step with the big 338's out to 1200 yards easily...

I heard they were to start production in June 2013? I'm pretty sure they have gone to a hybrid to get that kind of b.c. If the nose is thin enough, they might expand down to 1300' (mine will)
I too wish they would have come out with something heavier in the 6.5.......Rich
