Accubonds for a 300 RUM?

ChesterGolf
I'm curious as to the results you got with the 200gr Accubonds in your RUM?
I would say they flew very well indeed.

Accubonds for a 300 RUM?

I have only tested them on paper so far and have not got my load to where I want it. It would be plenty fine for hunting but I am a bit fussy in the accuracy department. I'll have some out in the field with me this season so I'll let you know.

I have been reloading my 300 RUM with 180 gr. Barnes triple shock and I love the bullet. The problem is that I am having a killer time to get them here in Nova Scotia (they still think core-lokts are the "new kid" on the block). I have used partitions but I don't like the lead tips so that brings me to my question. Does anybody load the 180 gr. accubonds in their 300 RUM or do you think they will withstand the velocity if there happened to be a close shot? There is one supplier that can get the Nosler stuff easily but not the Barnes stuff.

I've shot a LOT of Scirocco bullets in my .300 Win Mag in the 180 gr. and I rate this bullet along with the Accubonds at a 10+!! Top accuracy all the way to 1000....and beyond!!

Accubonds for a 300 RUM?

I love the swift scirocco bullets. I used them in factory loads before I got my dies in to reload the caliber. My problem is that reloading is a dieing past-time up here and components are getting harder and harder to get without buying from the states which takes forever if at all since 9/11.

I see that Hammer1 led you to an outlet for the Barnes bullets but, curiously. Did you ever load any of the Accubonds? How did they perform?

Accubonds for a 300 RUM?

I did load a batch of accubonds but only shot them on paper. I didn't get the accuracy (about 1MOA)out of them that I thought I would but that was only because I didn't try all the powder combos to see where I needed to be. I am back with the TSX for now because I have a super accurate load (0.5MOA)already tuned in. I am buying in bulk now because the shipping is killing me. Brick Wall,) I wish there was a shop into reloading in NS that I could use so I could experiment with various loads.
