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.

Anything less than overkill is underachievement!
