I think I'll play with the IMR / AccuBond combo to see if I can tighten it up even more.
You can hit a deer in the eyeball with that at 300 yards. Why mess with success (unless messing around is the point)?

I agree that this will be a great hunting round as is but I'm always trying to get every bit of potential out of everything.

My rifle has a 1-9 twist so I've not tried anything bigger than 130gr. The partitions are tough to find these days.
