    I am planning on loading the 110gr Accubond but there is no load data on where to start.
    It is for my Dad's rifle and he plans on maybe a coyote or two and our small blacktail deer.
    Anyone with a load program that could run the numbers for me?
    Thanks

    I've no experience with that load so I can't tell you exactly. I do have a Hornady manual (7th ed) that lists loads for the 110gr Vmax and HP bullets. It could help you narrow down the powder selection and hopefully get you a place to start.

    Powder Start Max Velocity

    RL-15 47.5gr - 56.9gr 3400fps
    H4350 53.8gr - 60.1gr 3300fps
    IMR 4350 56gr - 64.5gr 3400fps
    Viht N-160 56.5gr - 66.7gr 3400fps

    That's all the loads they list in the manual.

    Have fun and be safe. I hope hop this helps,

    Chris

    I worked up a load that seems to shoot really well, 54.2 grains of Varget over the 110 gr Accubond.
    Shoots pretty well, normally 3/4" at 100 yards. Smokin right along about 3550 fps.

    We need to see what happens when it hits something. I will keep you posted.

    I'm going to drop-in on some 110 grainers after hunting season and work up some coyote medicine, I can't get 140 Bergers to open up on them. I saw some 110 v-max's yesterday but I was kinda wondering if they would hold up to WSM speeds or how much coyote will be left if they do hit. Might be messy:D

    I think that RE19 would be too slow for that bullet.

    My dad did not get a buck this year with his new 270 WSM so hogs are next to see what happens with the new bullet.

    I have used Re#19 with the 110 V-Max. I couldn't get any coyote to cooperate with my plans. However in my Mod 70 I seated bullets to touching the lands and 68.1 was max. I was getting about 3,450 1"MOA at 100 yds. But now that I learn from this thread that Varget produced higher velocity ? That means I gotta take a scope off one rifle and put it back on my Mod 70. . I didn't know until now that Nosler even made a 110 Accubond for a 270. Now I gotta buy a box of them dudes . Then I guess I'll have to sight the rifle in. Find a coyote and kill him and take a picture to document the hole. Life is hard, at least I know I have 2 lbs of Varget hopefully I can find a varmint ?

    Yes I tried it out of my 24" Factory bbl. I clocked it at 3,325 average for 5 rnds. As hard as Varget is to come by I'll no longer use it in my 270 WSM. The good stuff is Re#17 66.5 produced 3,500. I've tried Re#19 H4350 and those were about 3,325 also ,but with heavier charges. .... Shooting 130 and above bullet weights Re#17 was to fast. Magpro, IMR 7828 Retumbo seem to do better.Hope this helps
