    Anyone done anything w/Reloader 19 and 110 gr accubonds? I know that a slower powder will likely proove to be better but I'm starting w/Rl 19. I cannot find any data w/ this powder-bullet combo.

    RL 25 is the powder you want to use.

    RL19 will work fine, i've used it in the 25-06, 6.5-06, 6.5-06 AI, 270, and 30-06 with excellent results.

    I tend to agree w/both of you. I have Reloader 22 and I've loaded some proof loads w/it as well as 19. I may have to buy some 25. Hope to get these to the range this Fri or Sat. I have a Rem Classic in 25-06 that I practicly stole as it was tagged and priced as a BDL,lol I lost a lot of sleep.

    I use 57 grains of RL19 under a 100 grain NBT, deadly accurate and shoots out of an aftermarket Shilen at 257 Weatherby speeds, something like 3400 fps.

    Dumbear,
    My latest Nosler manual lists the 110gr Accubond and 52gr of RE19 as max for 3213fps, even though I don't agree with your choice of powder, it will still work alright. Pressures will be very high though.
    I use RE25 exclusively in my 26-05, and I get over 3300fps with 110gr Accubonds with low pressures.
    In fact I haven't been able to get enough powder in to reach max pressure!
