Thanks for the replies. The Barnes bullets seem to get really good reviews from people who have tried them, any downfalls to them compared to the accubonds?

The only thing I can think of is they might be a touch more expensive. I remember reading that the early barnes bullets fouled the barrel excessively, but the new design with the grooves has helped with that. I like the fact that they are accurate and retain almost all of their weight after impact.

Re: tikka t3 270 OAL

I made a dummy cartridge last night using a 130 grain Nosler Ballistic tip beacuase that's what i decided on. The OAL to the tip turned out to be 3.335 as i seated the bullet to clip length. According to my hornady OAL gauge using a bullet comparator this is about .1 off the lands. Does this seem way off?
