Re: What powder for 200gr Accubond in .300 Win mag?
Duff, I posted this very question about 2 weeks back on a couple different sites, about 15 out of 20 responses recommended 71gr R22 with the 200gr Accubond. I loaded up a bunch of 200gr Accubonds and headed for the range, in my case I ended up dropping down to 70.6gr R22 .008 off the lands which allowed me to shoot easily under 1". I will fine tune this load and my reloading process this will be my hunting load. I also really liked the performance of 168gr TSX bullets with R19 .025 off the lands in my WarBird so I tried it in my Sako Hunter 75. I went over the data and guesstimated 73.4gr R19 and tried .025 off the lands, this load allowed me to shoot 1/2". The best thing I noticed about these 2 loads is that I can switch back and forth between the Accubonds and TSX without having to adjust my scope! Good Luck! [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
