6.5 creed and 140 accubonds
« on: January 10, 2020, 11:23:11 PM »

Iíve had pretty decent luck with h4350 and the 140 Nosler BT. I ordered some 140 accubonds for bigger game than deer. Iíve tried with no success of a decent load for the 129 long range AB. Groups just arenít there. I do have some loaded up now with Reloader 17 for next range trip. I managed to get the 130 accubonds to do great in my 260CTR with IMR 4831 but velocity wasnít there.
Anyone have success with the standard 140 accubonds in the T3x platform. Powders used please and oal would be nice. I have found out all 7 Tikkas I own like a jump to the lands. Maybe this one doesnít.

Do a Berger seating test for any projectile after you find a good node  / charge weight...easy peezy.
If you don't have a bullet comparator get one!  Pointless if you don't have one for accuracy shooting.

Try H4831sc with the 140gr projectiles...you should find great velocity and a good node between 43.5-44.5grns (pretty much max load)...like all loads work up to this...2700-2725 fps should be the general area.

I use a comparator at the bench all the time. I havenít used the shirt cut but I did run imr4831 in my 260 with the 143 eldx. Only powder it would group with. Iíd think velocities would be slow as they were with the 260. Iíll take accurate and slower over fast and not.
