I shoot 71 grs of Re 22 under the 200gr Accubond, this load was developed when temps were in the 30s/40s and shoots in the .4-.75 range at about 2930 fps. I have shot the same load some when the temps were in he upper 70s to lower 80s, didn't have the chrony but I did notice the groups were a little larger .75- 1". Can't say for sure it was a temp. sensitivity thing, could have been mirage, but point of impact stayed the same.

seemed like the faster i pushed these things the better they printed. both loads did the same thing. first pair of groups were about 1 1/2, second were a tad over an inch then they just shrank. with a slight overall edge to the R-22.

wonder what they would have done if i had that extra inch or so of tube...

longgun,
You might want to try 82 grains of retumbo. I was getting 3030 fps out of this load. I was shooting good groups out of this load also. Retumbo is pretty good about being non temp sensative.

That does seem slow, I'm shooting the same load in win. brass with fed 215 primers at 2920 out of a 26" barrel.

Re: 300wm & 200gr Accubonds...

i tested the same loads yesterday. just had to verify that the new cases were not the culprit of the sluggishness... same result (R-22) 71gr 2600's,72gr high 2700's low 2800's, 73gr low 2900's. POI shifted some but accy stayed the same.

maybe just a slow lot of R-22. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]
