Got out today to do some shooting and my buddy was playing with some Nosler 140 grain Accubonds in his 270 Allen Magnum. This load is very mild in his gun and is actually about 200 fps under max but it's super accurate, putting 3 into a ragged hole at 100 and 3 into about 3/4" at 300. The fella that owns the land where we shoot had recently replaced his gong at 300 yards. Seems like some dummy with one of those new fangled Allen Mags had punched several holes through it and then, just for good measure, had ripped the gong off of the chains with the final shot. We promised him we wouldn't shoot his new virgin gong, but he let it hang there for a week and never shot it, so we felt it just had to be broken in. My buddy put the first one almost through it with his 270 AM and a friend that was shooting with us, shot it with his factory 270 Win and factory 130 PSP ammo. There's a little difference in the craters. Looks like a little driver error there on the 270 AM as he's about half a crater left of center. Not bad accuracy considering no definite aiming point on that goofy red colored plate. I got lucky and found what was left of the Accubond laying in the dust in front of the gong. I guess some would complain that the Accubond failed the weight retention test, as it only retained 13.43% of it's weight and finished at 18.8 grains weight. Diameter, as recovered, was .508" and thickness is .162"
