Accubond and NBT Interchangeable?

Just noticed that the Accubond is now available in 308 165gr.

........165gr NBTs shoots like a dream for me; can the accubond be substituted with no load changes.

..ie is it externally identical (they have the same BC) and of the same hardness/engravability as the NBT?

Many Thanks!

Re: Accubond and NBT Interchangeable?

I asked the same question to Nosler about the 180gr Accubond and Ballistic tip , they said that they would shoot to the same point of impact and have the same flight path but it would be wise to work up another load , they said that the Accubond might show a little more pressure.

I haven't tried yet but I was planning to load up 12 of each with the exact same load and shoot groups out to 400yds to see what the differance might be , just haven't had time yet.

Re: Accubond and NBT Interchangeable?

I have seen them usually have the same impact but they do sometimes like a slightly different charge of the same powder-maybe .5 grain up or down. The .308 180 AB and BT have bc's listed the same but they ARE NOT the same length so it might be wise to test bc's on both and compare.

Re: Accubond and NBT Interchangeable?

All - Thanks

....interchangeability has relegated itself to a theoretical problem for me at the moment ....went to the UK's largest country sports event on Friday ...no one had 165 accubonds ..or NBTs [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

Good eh? Can't even get myself 165NBTs (and when I do they'll come out at approx 17 / US$27 for 50 [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img] !) ...you fellows don't realise how good you've got it [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Re: Accubond and NBT Interchangeable?

Colin,

Thanks. I tried Reloading Solutions, Norman Clark and Modern & Antique Firearms (the latter is the fellow who distributes Redding in UK)....rather amazing that none of them had them in 165!!

I bought 600 NBTs last time I was in Canada (about 4 years ago), but now my 'lifetime supply' [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] is dwindling. I have some hind stalking booked for the end of Oct and in Dec and am feeling a little 'twitched' that I haven't got plenty of bullets on hand!

...thanks for the offer, but as I'm down on Salisbury Plain logistics would be difficult!
