Sounds like that Savage barrel should have been returned for a new one!!!
We returned the rifle; as to whether it is now wearing a new bbl or not I don't know... It was my pop's toy and he gave up on it and got something else. Rifle of the month kinda stuff.

Roy, & Rich,
Your packages should arrive by Wed at the earliest, or Thurs at the latest.
Had to mail them both as "parcels". Sent from US post office this AM.
Can't wait to read your results.

Re: Nosler Accubond Long Range problem

TJ,

Here's my plan.

1. Greet the mailman

2. Open package

3. Visually inspect

3a. Compare w/140 & 150 offerings

3b. Dissect and compare w/AB & Ballistic Tip jackets

4. Based on 150 BT loads load the ABLRs to destruction or 3600 FPS @ 10' or 'my' max pressure limit, which ever occurs first.

4b. 300 yard accuracy will be recorded during 4.

5. Determine optimum accuracy load @ reasonable Allen Magnum velocity expectations. (BTs shoot exceptional @ 3500+)

6. Using the accuracy load do terminal performance tests from 300 yards to as far as I can hit the media container, in 100 yd increments. (150 BTs preformed as expected from 100 to 400 yards.)

This should pretty much use up a day.

With the survivors I'll head to my LR spot and validate bc to 1200 yds.

That'll be a whole other day and a great opportunity for the goats to pack the rifle, shooting gear, vituals, water and camping gear.

I'm kinda looking forward to this.
