25/06 and 110gr Accubond
I had planned on hitting the range this weekend to do some preliminary loading with the 110gr AB's. However as is generally the case around here, other things came up.
I was wandering, since I have a BUNCH of the 115gr Pt's, if it would be worth while in working up a new load using the AB's.
My current load is using RL-22 and I have been getting 3150 at 10' fairly consistantly for the past 8 or so years. The load will stick within an inch or slightly under at 200 yds, with us doing our part. I say us as my daughter shoots this rig as much or more than I do. We have used it for everything from long range varmints to hogs, with a lot of deer thrown in the middle. In fact the last critters my daughter took were a couple of coyotes out around 300 - 350 yds and her last deer at around 250. It just works for us.
In looking at the reports from folks using the AB's, it would seem to be wonderful for this caliber and I should be able to get right at 3200 with it from my rifle. With the slightly higher BC. it should work out to about the same as what I have been using. I just hate to change things up as I only have one box of the AB's verses several hundered of the PT's of the same lot. Decisions, decisions, any input from you folks?
I guess I just need to hurry up and shoot up all of those PT's, LOL
