    I am looking at loading up some 140 grain Accubond's for a 270 win. My Question is weather or not the 140 grain Ballistic Tips would have a major shift in point of impact to use as load development and practice. It would be nice to be able to shoot and save a little money while still keeping similar results. Thanks in advance for any insight.

    I don't think there will be any big difference in POI. Perhaps the same as buying a new Lot of bullets. You'd want to shoot them to check and see, but they will be very similar.

    I've been shooting the 180 ab and bt in my 300 win mag. Will admit I'm not as good of a shot as most on here, but I don't notice any significant difference.

    I didn't think there would be a major shift but I figured I would ask people wiser and with more experience than I have. I still want to make sure the 140's will group in my rifle, as I have only shot the 130's and they grouped very well. Keeping my fingers crossed.

    I shot both the 140 BT and 140 Accubond out of my Remington 700 CDL in 280 Rem and the point of impact was close enough that I took both with me deer hunting. I was planing to take a close shot with the Accubonds and a long shot with the BT. It did not work out too well so I shot a deer at 100 yards with the BT.
