    Ian, A while back you posted some test result about the 200 gr. Accubonds and Matchkings flying about the same out to 700 or so yards. I was wondering if both bullets were loaded over the same powder & charge and just happened to have the same MV or were they loaded over different charges to achieve the same MV? If the charges were different do you remember by how much?
    Thanks in advance
    Chris

    Chris,
    Same powder charge, primer and case, probably OL also. Another fellow did the loading and owns that Savage, he shot very well. Both bullets tracked the same path out to 1000 yards when we did the zeroing in 100 yard increments. Accuracy was excellent, we did not record group size since we were shooting steel plates.
    His barrel liked those two bullet about equally.

    Thanks for the info. As soon as the wind quits I'm going to try them both myself.
