Re: 165gr.Nosler Accubond

Jimmy, I wouldn't worry too much about quick load. I find it to overstate pressure. I heard it is designed that way so the developer of the program won't get sued if someone hurts themselves.

I would start 3 grains off like sewwhat said with the H1000 and work up from there. I personally don't think you will get too hot a load at 83, but I don't know anything about your rifle.

I think you will like the accubonds they are a great bullet and the H1000 is very temp stable.

Good Luck!

Has anyone used the H1000 for the 300wsm. I am considering using it for the 165 nosler accubond in mine with a 28" barrel. Thanks

Re: 165gr.Nosler Accubond

will not go into the boring details,but the H-1000 @ 83 grs. only clocked at 3163.Need to bump it up some to get to 3200.Accuracy was about 3/4" maybe better with some TLC.Tried H-4831sc max load from the book for 3160 and about the same accuracy.Had some Ramshot Hunter on hand so worked up to what I consider max in my rifle and the velocity was 3212 fps the group was a .242".I think that I like it!Will load up more and retest to see if that group was a fluke.The extreme spread was 13 fps with a sd of 6 fps.Quarter inch groups could be habit forming.I hope that it is true that Hunter is insensitive to cold.Does anyone know if that is a fact?

Re: 165gr.Nosler Accubond

Retested the 165 Accubond and Hunter yesterday fireforming brass.Shot six three shot groups.The two best groups were .317" and .581".The other four groups had two holes touching or through the same hole and the 3rd shot would open the group to 1".I contribute this to bad trigger control and/or flinching.I was tight as a knot,trying too hard to put the 3rd shot into the other two.I seem to shoot best with a "come what may" attitude and not pressing.I guess that you could call this a classic "Choke"!!!Anyway seems to be a very accurate load.3200-3228 fps.
