270 wsm Accubond and Magpro Loads

I have been searching for Magpro and 140 Accubond load data. I don't see anything on their site for this particular bullet.

I'm looking to see what most are working up to on their test loads.

I have shot 74 grains but it craters the primer and groups were not good.

I have WLR primers and nickle plated Winchester brass.

I was going to do start with 72.5 and load my way up but wanted to get some more input.

thanks in advance!

Re: 270 wsm Accubond and Magpro Loads

This is the best combination for big game that I found in my factory 1885 Winchester with at 28 inch barrel. The Western Powders website has a pdf file of their load data. I see that 74.2 gr is listed as the maximum. I found this a little hot for my Norma brass in my single shot which does not have the camming force of a bolt action. This is my data with MagPro and 140 ABs:

140gr B-tip Magpro 73.5 gr 3302
11/7/2011 CCI 250

140gr B-tip Magpro 74 gr 3332
11/7/2011 CCI 250

140 gr AB Magpro 74 gr 3299 22.34502 12/4/2011
3272 3295 3290 3303 3333
1/2 inch group
140gr B-tip Magpro 74.2 gr 3340
11/7/2011 CCI 250 Book Max

140 gr AB Magpro 74.0 gr 3222 19.49872 5/7/2012 Wolf sort 3222 3201 3196 3206 3244 3226 3239 3242 3225
140 gr AB Magpro 74.2 gr 3317 22.7193 12/4/2011 CCI 250 3288 3333 3338 3300 3340 3302
