    I haven't used the AA3100 with 130's AB's. But I did try it with a variety of other bullets and just didn't see the accuracy of IMR4350 and RL19. The 140 AB's shoot well in my ABOLT 270wsm. Also the retained weight after impact is impressive. The flat base Sierra 130's are deadly Accurate for 130's I've shot. I have some 135 HPBT match sierra's I'm going to work with next for paper and steel.
