    I've only got one wish for them this year, a 250 grain 338 accubond. Wait a minute, that was the same wish I had for them last year. ANd the year before that and the year before that.........

    GG,

    If we are going to dream, why not go big and wish for a 265 gr 338 Accubond!!! Any 1-10 in a magnum chambering would stabilize it and would be a better choice as well.

    That would be my pick but it will never happen. Thats alright, the 265 gr AT RBBTs seem to work pretty well so far.....

    120gn 7mm Would be perfect for general hunting in New Zealand.

    We had chuck Pritchard from Nosler give us a talk and apparently they cannot go to a smaller diameter than 6.5mm due to the way they construct the projectiles.

    Nosler makes a .257" 110g AB...Thats the smallest I know of anyways..

    7mm 150g AB would be nice...
    338 250g AB would also be really nice...

    I vote for a 168 to 180 grain 7mm Accubond.

    Make them as heavy as possible for factory rifles, such as the 9 1/2 twist REM 700 Sendero 7mm Ultra Mag.

    This would be an ideal big game bullet in 7mm for Elk sized game. Similar to the 175 Nosler Partition, but an Accubond.

    Working with factory twist rates would keep the sales volume high ...
