    Hey guys, I saw that these bullets had shipped from Nosler but can't find anyone stocking them yet. I emailed Nosler 2 days ago but no response yet. Has anybody seen them forsale and in stock????

    I got two bags from the proshop. Plan on shooting them in a 280AI. The 210 shoot well out of a 300 RUM. I will try to post load data when I get time.gun)

    Only ladder tested today, this was the best group. I have already loaded for the AM. Will post results. I know that the 160 AB with 61 grs of 7828 averaged 3079 with a ES of 7. Right on the pressure brink but it was 81 out. Hoping for at least 2900.

    4 shots or 3? Nice group. Will you continue to tweak it or call it good? Wish I could get my hands on a couple boxes!

    3 shot. Will verify in the AM and chrono. And the only tweaking I will do is move the scope over. I am calling this good unless velocity sucks.

    Back to finding the 168s....Midway HAD them for a few hours two days ago.

    I am sure, like many others, you signed up for a notification? They never e-mailed me and heard same from others.

    The way I figure it, the LR accubonds will not be readily available for this hunting season except for the people that live on the net and grab them first.

    I would love to have some LR 175s to try but quite frankly I have Berger 180s that I'll shoot this season. The LR bullets are next year's project.

    I too never received any email about the 168gr being in stock. We've entered the second phase of panic buying, wherein everyone who didn't build an ammo fort in their basement the first time around is now ready to get in on the fun when things get back in stock.

    I'm going to stick with Bergers and regular Accubonds.
