Gentlemen: I could use help please. I have only found one thread asking this same
question, and the answer was to use the old IMR 4350 and work up from 36 gr. up
to 40 gr. Depending on the gun/barrel, etc. that probably would only get an average
of 2,650 fps -- perhaps a little More. My rifle is an older Ruger model 77, with 24'' barrel and long throat. It has the sliding tang style safety.
If 115 grain Nosler Partitions can safely reach about 2,900 fps in my rifle with RL-22
and Ramshot Magnum, wouldn't the 110 gr. Accubond be capable of at least the
The bearing surface is long on the Accubond. About like that of the Sierra 117 gr.
and the 115 gr. Partition, so it should not build pressure in excess of those heavier
bullets unless the "bonding" makes the Jackets harder or something that I am not
These 110 gr. Accubonds have been available for a while now and we Roberts
shooters need some updated loading data with newer slow burning powders
That just might be as accurate in our individual rifles as good old 4350 is in the
Lilja testing barrel at Nosler's Lab.
Thanks in advance if any of you have any information to share.
