    Anyone have any first hand experience with the nosler long range accubonds? I have rem brass what velocities should I see out of a 26 in tube? What primer and powered is the magic ticket? Thanks!

    Kinda scared to use these. Wish I would have gotten the 175's from what I read they seem perform better at longer ranges (lower velocity).

    My twin Remington 700 Sendero SF 7mm STWs did well with the 168 LRAB.

    I used Remington brass, Fed 215 primers and H1000 powder.

    Here's a couple of pics of three shot groupings @ 100 yards from each of the twins!

    Would your sendero stw stabilize the 175's? And what kind of velocity are you getting out of the 168's?? Groups look good!!! What is your oal?

    My twin Remington 700 Sendero SF 7mm STWs also did well with the Matrix .284 168 grain VLDs.

    .284 Caliber Bullets Custom Built for Accuracy | Matrix Ballistics

    I used Remington brass, Fed 215 primers and H1000 powder for this bullet too.

    Here is a three shot group @ 300 yards with the Matrix .284 168 grain VLDs out of one my twin Remington 700 Sendero SF 7mm STWs.

    The velocity was 3,192 fps and the group was .729" which is a .243 MOA.

    I've tried both the 168 and 150 ABLR out of my 7 rem mag and have gotten them to group pretty well but haven't seen the velocity I'm looking for. Chrony set at 16 feet I was getting around 2800 fps with the 150s with N560. Around 2900 fps with the 168 but SD was 45 using 70 grains H1000. Norma brass and fed 215m primers. Best so far was 35 thou off the lands but still tweaking. I've read that they like a long jump tho and some guys are loading them at 90 thou with good luck.
