Where is your accuracy node with the Retumbo and the 140 Accubonds. Just curious.

Re: 270 WSM Elk Load?

Thanks guys with the accubonds I'm running rl 19 I believe I'm away from home right now though the biggest thing I'm seeing with them is according to the nosler manual with the powder charger I should be getting about 150 fps more than I am. But I'm not complaining they are shooting very well. The Hornadys shoot very well also I'm just afraid they'd be a little soft for elk but maybe not
