Registered Users do not see the above ad.


Recent studies have shown that at magnum velocities, plastic tipped bullets had down range performance issues. The plastic tip deforms due to the heat generated at the higher velocities. Many if not all bullet manufacturers either have addressed or are in the process of addressing this issue. Try a non plastic tipped bullet. If you like Noslers give a 130gr partition a try and see if it improves things. Those lighter bullets are usually shorter and thus will stabilize better or worse in a given barrel length and twist combination. Test, document, refine and test some more. You'll hit on a load that is what you are looking for.

Seems that this WBY likes heavy bullets (150 Nosler Ballistic tip) .650" groups at 100yds. Also improved with shorter OAL.

Your statement has NOT been verified by anyone in the ballistics industry, it has ONLY been stated by one company trying to promote THEIR new product. Which is, in fact, an old product with a NEW NAME.
No one, other than Hornady, has even mentioned this issue.

I have NEVER seen a melted or deformed from heat plastic tip from either a Nosler Ballistic Tip or Accubond recovered from game animals in excess of 800yrds, in fact, the tips are often found inside the rib cage with very little deformation. That distance should be enough time to melt the tip if it were true. I have seen them shaved on one side from hitting bone and squashed quite a bit, but NEVER melted.

Cheers.

My 270 Weatherby really likes the 150gr Partition, my COL is a tad under 3.400" and produces 3/8 MoA on a good day from a solid bench. Minute of deer from snap shooting is good enough for me on deer.

It also liked the 130gr BT, but they are very destructive on meat I found.

Cheers.
