Nosler Custom w/Accubond

I used the Nosler Custom Ammo with the Accubond bullet for the first time this year in my .280 AI - didn't have time to reload. The 140 gr Accubond dropped three whitetail from 175 to 207 pounds within 40 yards of where they stood from ranges of 85 yards to 220 yards, all penetrating completely through the animal, taking out both lungs.

My Chrony indicated consistent velocities and my Remington 700 appears to like them, shooting 0.68" 5-shot groups at 100 yards. I purchased 500 Accubonds in .30 caliber to load in my .30-06. What can I say - Nosler's have always performed for me.:)

Hi. Anyone have much experience with Nosler cartridges with the Accubond bullet? I'm considering trying them out with my 6.5x55.
Nosler makes a very good product, but like any other bullet, your gun may/may not shoot them well. Performance on game, assuming you aren't after prairie dogs or Kodiak grizzlies, will likely be on par with anything you can find.

Nosler makes a excellent Custom Ammunition. I use it religiuosly in my 264 win mag devasting shock and accuracy 300+ yards. Whether bullet placement or luck I personally have never chased a animal. Stopped them in their tracks, impressive ammo. I have used them in my 300weatherby, and in 7 mag. with great accuracy also. I think you will impressed. Happy Hunting
