Re: Nosler Accubond Long Range problem

Again,
I apologize for my methods.

I still have a hard time cutting up shootable bullets, especially these, which prove even more difficult to get, in the middle of a "component recession".


Rich ill be flinging you a PM after a quick game of hide & seek, that I promised to my kids.....
Gimme about a 1/2 hr hahaha

You could try putting a fine mill file across it to try to improve the cut.

Ahhh,
Young grasshopper should've consulted the master BEFORE I squished it in a vise

Good call Roy,
I may have some JB Weld layin around somewhere. Goodness knows I've got boards, drills, table saws, etc to make a sweet bullet torturing rig. I just didn't think far enough out of the box.
The vise was on the bench, so it never occurred to me.
By the end of the Autopsy, I had the feel for exactly when to quit cranking on the handle and not have the bullet fly out as i cut into it. Also knew just how hard crank it before I squished it. Trial & error, ya know.

I had a What Would Roy Do? moment when that bullet got hot & I heard the sound of rice crispie's as the tip shot out of it. Pop!
All I could think of, as I stood there in disbelief, was, Roy would just superglue that sucker back in! I laughed the whole time I searched for it.

Re: Nosler Accubond Long Range problem

Looks interesting!! Sizable section of unsupported nose that the tip would push against at launch. Can't wait for more results

The lr looks like it has a hell of a tough heel on the pictures so that could be a likely problem with an out of spec bore.
I don't put much stock in savage getting their bores right after we got a rifle marked 243 a while back from them at our lgs that had a 25 caliber bore on it. The chamber had no step from the chamber to the throat and shot like a shotgun with nearly every bullet tried. The 70 gr. speer tnt was the sole shootable bullet in that rifle. The whole bullet has a paper thin jacket and there's a heck of a lot of bearing surface so any engaugement seems to be enough to get her to spin well.
I am sure the bullets match their picture in the box. I was just reffering to the fast that both have a very heavy, thick base of solid guilding metal.

Sounds like that Savage barrel should have been returned for a new one!!!
