I'm gonna try the 140 gr Accubond in my Rem 700 .270, but was looking for some real world experience with these new powders. Both claim the same thing (higher velocities, min temp sensitivity), but was curious if someone had hit on an accurate load or had other experiences to share. Usually use RL19 (current preference), 4350 or 4831 with NBT's (no more) and SGK's, with excellent accuracy. Just kinda wanting to start with a totally new load from "scratch," over time, just for fun. I like the experimentation, but would like to pick just one powder to work with.

I will eventually work up a load to (hopefully) same POI with the same powder but the cheaper aforementioned bullets for practice.

Also have some old Winchester Failsafes (without the Lubalox/moly coating) that I may work up a load for, but use only for the most extreme circumstances. Any suggestions here would also be appreciated.

SSL, As always, Thanks and God Bless,
Ryan

All I can tell you is that QuickLOAD calculations show RL17 giving about 75 fps more from a 24" tube with at a maximum load that fills the space under the bullet just over 92%. That is as compared to Hodgdon's compressed maximum load of Hybrid 100V.
Is that 75fps faster than the Hybrid 100V? Wow! Alliant claims a 120+ fps increase from RL19, and Hodgdon claims 100+ fps. Will try to find some of the RL17, although I do like the compressed load from the Hybrid... Hmmm, choices, choices...
