Re: 300 win short COAL

The Accubond has a different O-give. Tangent vs. secant, Not anywhere NEAR as sensitave to seating depth. All the accubonds I load like about .015 off the lands.

Hornady makes a 190 gr BTSP, if you wanted to stick with the same or simmilar wt., But Im a HUGE fan of Nosler bullets, especially the Accubond, and having read your post on your Elk, Id stay with the Accubond over the Hornady if it were me.
Congrats by the way.........

Well if they work well, go for it. Otherwise, why so darn far away?

Re: 300 win short COAL

I shoot a mark 5 in 300win I have a hunch that wetherby is cutting lots of freebore into there standard calibers as well as weatherby calibers . also the mag seems to be short so I contacted weatherby and they told me that is the stangard magiazine length for all there magnum calibers. 3.492 is the max I can go so the cartrige will fit in the mag. How does that lenght comare with outher 300 winnies please help

Re: 300 win short COAL

I shoot the 200 gr ABs seated .155 off the lands, they go .5 to .75 out of a factory Savage 112. They just don't seem to mind the jump. I have to seat at 3.435 to fit the magazine, measured with a comparator, not base to tip.

Re: 300 win short COAL

well its nice to see I am not the only one struggleing with a short magzine. winmagman sounds like we are working with simular dimentions and your results sound pretty good. have you checked your group size at a longer range? what powder/load are you useing?
