Any load data for 6.5x47 140 Accubonds?

Has anybody loaded up any 130-140 grain Accubonds for a 6.5x47 Lapua? I am looking to use this as an all-around hunting round from distance.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

Thanks!

We haven't tested with Accubonds yet, but have been running H414 with 130 and 140 grain Berger's with good results. Here is the data:

130 VLD
CCI 450 Small Rifle Mag primer
42.0 H414
Average 2844 FPS, ES 20

140 VLD
CCI 450 Small Rifle Mag primer
40.6 H414
Average 2760 FPS, ES 19

Neither one of these loads show pressure signs, but of course need to be worked up to especially since the Accubond will take up a little bit more space in the case than the VLD does. Happy Shooting!

40-41.5 grs of H4350 or Vit. N550 with CCI 450 Primers. Could try N540 at about 38grs.

H4350 as proved to be extremely accurate in every 6.5x47 I have loaded for. N550 has been the best performer but not always the most accurate. Have gotten 2900 with N550 out of a 24" barrel.

+1 on the H4350 has been the most accurate so far out of the two I have. I have one with .120 freebore that doesn't like anything over 130gr but the the other one has .160 that will shoot anything that gets put in it.

I may be 3 months late but better than never.

Rel 17 140 pressure Ladder test 40 deg F 24.55 Baro

140 AB OAL 2.645" = 10 thou off lands 3.105" Compartor

Powder charge velocity
37 2500
37.5 2527
38 2579
38.5 2622
39 2667
39.5 2690
40 2740
40.5 2764
41 2819
41.5 2795
42 2841
42.5 2874

The Accubond has a bit of bearing surface. More than the Partition which has more than the Berger VLD. More bearing surface = more pressure; or earlier pressure signs. I measure case head expansion and never saw more than .0002" on any of the shots fired.

These were fired from a 26" #3 Broughton, Pierce SA. I believe CCI 450's were used but through testing, I obtained better results with the F205M with Rel 17.

I also ran pressure ladders with the 140 Partition and Berger VLD if any one wants me to post them.
