Midway just bumped LR accubond delivery to September

That does it for me. Won't be shooting the 7mm 175 LR Accubond on any hunts this fall.

Midway listed the 175, 168 and 150 Long Range Accubonds to be available Aug 1. I didn't hear from them so I looked today (Aug 1) and they list a NEW (tentative) delivery date:

"Date expected in stock: 09/08/2013"

Never fails....a new component shows up too late for hunting season. Grumble grumble.....

    Pissed!

    this is now the 3rd time they have pushed them back.

    was suppose to be in may.

    I have a Colorado elk hunt in October and thought these would be perfect but not looking good.

    I emailed Midwayusa today to see what the deal is.

    I hope there're not just waiting just before hunting season.

    i'll post what they reply back.

    Gentlemen:
    So, what's the consensus on these? You guys think, heard, know if they will blow up at higher velocities up close? Are they only designed for longer range hunting? What's the story? What's the BC and optimum velocity spread? Got a price yet?
    I love the 7mm's in 140 & 160. Wifey used 140's in a 7-08 this year in RSA for Kudu, Gemsbok, and Zebra. All complete pass thrus at 110-175 yds. Looking forward to a heavier, higher BC Accubond for my 7-300. Thanks in advance for your opinions/thoughts. Take care.

    Re: Midway just bumped LR accubond delivery to September

    So nosler finally got back to me and this is what the email said.

    The 30cal 210gr., 270cal 150gr., 7mm 168gr. and 150gr. have all been released and shipped to distributors with the others to fallow shortly.

    Midway now's shows mid October for release. Last week was September.

    Min velocity is 1300fps. Doesn't matter what range. Midway shows them at $53/100 which Is good.

    B.c for 150 7mm is .611 considering the same size in a ballistic tip is well below .600.

    Big improvement.
