Re: need data and suggestions for 338 lapua

I don't think there is much difference in BC between the 225 and 250 accubond. I am trying to remember way back when I ran the numbers on those but I think the loss in muzzle velocity with the 250 grain was to much for the small bc gain out to 800 or so yards where I shoot most. After looking at it and shooting both I decided on the 225. May have been I factored in the groups they shot, I can't remember. If I do the accubond again it will be the 250 grain because the 225's blew into a zillion little pieces on every shot. Nothing remaining but fragments on every shot. Made me consider the lesser bc and shoot the barnes.

Tikkamike, I have hunted the HD and the LU. Frank, who owns the HD had a heart attack back in January. Last I heard he was recovering from it. I wish him the best. Didn't know if you knew that.

no I didnt know frank had a heart attack. I shot an elk on his place right below squaw teat at the end of december and he was doing just fine then. Hope he is ok.
