7mm STW Retumbo & H1000 & 160 Accubonds

I was wondering if any of you fellas use these powders with the 160 accubonds. I'm trying to develop a load with these two powders and was wondering about results you guys may have had.

Any load data greatly appreciated!

The 160 Accubond and the 162 A-Max both shot well with 80gr of Retumbo in my rifle. A slightly lighter charge of H1000 also shot very good but the Retumbo produced slightly smaller groups.

Terminal performance on chest shots with the 162gr A-Max were dramatic. BANG == FLOP [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Both bullets would shoot under 1" @ 200yds. Occasionally, I would get groups under .5" @ 200yds.

Thanks Varmint. I just loaded AB's some up. I'll let you know. I shot some 162 amax yesterday with 79.5 grains of retumbo and they shot about 1" at 100. They shot great with 75 grains of h1000. I can't wait to try the AB's tomorrow.

Thanks Again!

I got some 1/2" groups with 160 AB's today, but the Amax shoot terible in my gun. Buckmasters rifle liked the AB's better as well.

I want to chrono my AB loads to seem what velocity I'm getting. I'm going to back off to 79 and see if my groups get better.
