Re: 300 win.mag bullets

sakofan, maybe its what i'm not hearing that causes me to ask further. perhaps it is because no one has sufficient experience with the nosler ballistic tip boatail(180gr.)in my own hunting experience this bullet has performed properly at all ranges on large elk. i know this is is a broad statement but , nevertheless, it is true. i m not trying to push this bullet on anyone, simply discover what is out there by real world users.yes, i like the damn thing, but that is personal. well then, speak up, i await your enlightenment. thanks, jimm

Re: 300 win.mag bullets

Jimm, The ballistic tip bullet is known for great accuracy & great explosions at close range hits. Accubond is basically the same bullet with bonding. Why take a chance on big game with a bullet that could fail at shorter ranges? You never know what mother nature will offer! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]

Re: 300 win.mag bullets

Why would you not try the accubond if you are so fond of the BT Jimm? That one is very hard for me to understand. I have had some very bad experiences with BTs hitting the edges of shoulder bones or ribs and dissintigrating. I would not use one on elk ever again after using them on elk 3 years ago. Let me tell you, the accubonds are as accurate as the BTs, and a touch moreso in my own experience. They are a heck of a good bullet. I bought me a 300 WSM a few weeks ago with a 1-11" twist and I cannot wait until the 165 accubonds come out (Nosler says next year).

Re: 300 win.mag bullets

Well Jimm, I started out trying the 200 grain accubonds in my custom 300 win mag. I acually got mixed results with them. Some days they would group tight, other days they wouldn't. I later tried the 180s, and they were the ticket. I personally settled on 72.5 grains H4831SC. My particular rifle was not a big fan of RL22, but yours may be. I would definitely try both powders. One of the things I have loved about the accubonds is that in my rifle I have not needed to seet to the lands for great accuracy. This is not the case with the sierra matchkings I use for paper. I really do think you will have great luck with them. I don't know how many people I have talked to say they have gotten the best accuracy + terminal performance with the 180 grain accubonds + RL22 or H4831 in the 300 win mag. seams to be a sure winner.

P.S. The BC of the accubonds are slightly higher than that of the BTs since the accubonds are a bit longer than the BTs. I would not worry about that so much though.

accubond vs. BT

I called Nosler to ask why they didn't offer BT's for my 375 RUM anymore. [ QUOTE ]
We don't want our customers ******* off cape buffalo's - so we only offer the .375" in accubond

[/ QUOTE ]

I switching over from BT's to accubonds where I can.
