200 gr Part vs Accubond Max-Loads

I have been messung aroound with these 200 gr bullets lately. With all the data I find the 200 gr Part max is 79 gr of H-1000 and the 200 gr Accubond max is 77 gr H-1000. I loaded some fire formed Rem brass with 79 gr of H-1000 and some virgin RWS brass with 79 gr of H-1000. The RWS brass was compressed quite a bit. When I load Partitions of the same weight in either brass the load is not as compressed. Should I shoot the RWS, or pull the Accubonds and lower the charge? I am getting no pressure signs with the 200 gr Part with either brass. Thanks

Re: 200 gr Part vs Accubond Max-Loads

The reason the AB's are compressed is because its a lot longer bullet and takes up more case capacity then the partition.

As long as the AB's aren't showing signs of pressure, your OK.

I shoot compressed loads in my 25-06, 7 RM, and 338 EDGE.

I haven't fired the 200 gr Accubond in the RWS brass yet. I didn't get pressure signs when I fired it in the R-P brass that was fire formed. The case capacity of the RWS brass is noticably less. That is why I was concerned

Re: 200 gr Part vs Accubond Max-Loads

I'm not in favor of compressed loads. Some shooters claim that compressed loads "can" push the bullet partially out over time, thus, have several bullets with different oal. I believe that powder could change its burning characteristic if (overly) crushed by compression.

Is there a reason that you can't just load the Accubond to a longer oal?

Personally, if I was going to use that brass, I'd consider a faster powder.

Re: 200 gr Part vs Accubond Max-Loads

My COAL is fairly long now, going longer probably isn't an option. My hillbilly logic being " a 200 gr bullet is a 200gr bullet" but when I seated the bullet, flags went up in my mind. You could here it compressing. I have seen on line tid bits that guys are shooting as high as 80 gr but with different brass. I am getting about 2640 fps with the Part and I was just hoping to get that or more with the Accubond but I didn't want things coming apart. Thanks
