    Gonna load up some 140 accubonds for my 6.5 CM with the intention for them to be my hunting load. Rifle is a t3x ctr. Anyone have any luck with these? Accuracy? How much jump? Will be using h4350. Prolly start around .020 to .030 off the lands.

    No experience with the 140, but I do shoot the 130 Accubond in one of my 6.5x47’s. The gun was new last year so only killed a few deer and one hog. But was very impressed with the 130. Don’t see why the 140 would be any different. The 130 Berger hunting is also a deadly bullet. I shoot that out of my other 6.5x47. I also am using H4350.

    Accubonds like jump. Typically around 0.100" off the lands

    I jump Accubonds in both my .280s .015. Both shoot sub 1/2" consistently.

    I shoot a different caliber, but I load my Accubonds .015" from the lands. Accubonds and Ballistic Tips are usually fairly forgiving on seating depth, or they have been in my experience with them in my rifle.
