ammo

i like almost all winchester equipment except the balistic silvertips have had a lot of meat ruined by bullets desintigrating instead of mushrooming

Having purchased two cases of Winchester Supreme 180-gr. AccuBond in 30-06, I've found this combo to be extremely accurate shooting 7/8" MOA at 100 meters.

Once the ammo (listed below) is gone, I plan on switching everything over to the AccuBond.

Deer = Winchester 180-gr. Ballistic Silvertip at 2,750 fps in 30-06
Elk = Federal High Energy 180-gr. Partitions at 2,890 fps in 30-06
Practice = Federal 180-gr. Solid Base at $2,710 fps in 30-06

I've done some tests with Accu-bonds this summer and wasn't overly impressed with them. Scirocco, I found, have better weight retention. Swift A-Frame, oddly enough, has probably the best weight retention among most hunting bullets.

anybody tried winchester supreme accubond CT ammo?

I shoot a Browning ABolt II composite stainless stalker topped with a Bushnell Elite 4200 2.5 x 10 x 40 mm on Weaver see - through mounts with Williams open sights chambered in 7mm Rem. Mag. Scope zeroed at 350 yrds and sights at 100 yrds. I only shoot Winchester Supreme 165 gr. Accubond CT and I'll tell you I get sub MOA results up to 250 yrds. I switched from Winchester Supreme Nosler Ballistic Silvertip 150 gr (which also shoot great) At 394 yards, on my particular rifle, I still get 1.625" groups, in which I think is capable of dropping any big game. Although I must tell you, it's not just the rifle but the shooter. I shoot my rifle quite regularly and have built confidence in the rifle and quite comfortable with it.
