Try the same loess with Federal Trophy Bonded Tip bullets. Better BC and much better construction for penetration. I found these to be more accurate in my 280AII ran a few tests at reasonable distance (400 yards) this past weekend to see if I could find a load to use for an elk hunt next fall. Both of these groups were with the 160 Accubond. The first group was RE26 which gets me much better velocity. I felt pretty good on all the shots, but I suppose I could have yipped the first round. The second target with 3 shots at the bottom is 4831SC. I never changed the dope, so you can see the RE26 is slightly more than 1MOA better at that distance. The two shots to the right of the bull on the second target were fired by a buddy who had never shot that far. He probably canted the rifle a little differently from me. Would you guys take the extra velocity with the 26 or the super accuracy of the 4831? For reference, the 4831 group is about 1.75”. I am guessing the outfitter won’t allow me to take shots past 400 yards or so anyway.
I have 4 or 500 if you want to purchase a few boxes let me know. Not bullet shortage prices. I can keep you going. DM me.Right now about all I have for this caliber would be H4831SC and RE26. I have a ton of Varget and H4350 for some of the other calibers I primarily use. Now I can’t even find find 160 Accubonds, so I am hoping they come back one day.
