100 yards- 90 gr. 6mm E-tip, 165 gr. 30-06 Accubond, 100 gr. 6mm Partition
Brave man here! Shooting through the chrony at 300 yards to get a "true" fps at that distance. I never shot the chrony!!!
My son's elk this year at 90 yards with 300 WSM 180 gr. Accubond. Broke ribs going in, hit spine, went into off shoulder breaking it and was an inch or two under the hide in the meat on the shoulder. I don't think it could have done better.
Recovered Accubond from his elk. Really doesn't get any better than this!!
Exit hole on my son's cow on her left shoulder from a 90 gr. E-tip at 350 yards. She went 20 and dropped.
Paul, his son Andy, and my son Jeff with Andy's elk at 250 yards, 25-06 and one 120 gr. Partition. She was quartered and he hit her where shown on the left side with the blood. It EXITED her right side tight behind her shoulder! She ran 40 yards and tipped over.
Here's some close-ups of the 90 gr. Accubonds so you get a better idea of how they did. I think they did quite well considering how fast they were going at 25 yards! Should work very well on coyotes, deer, and antelope.
I like a nosler accubond, or a barnes ttx out of my .243, my dad prefers the standard barnes out of his 6mm rem
I went back today and shot a couple groups with the Accubonds playing with them to see if my #1B liked them at all. I had a couple extra's loaded up so I figured I might as well pick up a couple extra water jugs and take about a 4' piece of 2x10 with me and shoot it at 100 yards. Muzzle fps of this load was 3240 and this is what shot one looked like as I walked up to collect the Accubond. Jug number 4, about 50% weight retention.
This is how shot number two looked as I walked up. Amazing how much pressure is exerted when those jugs explode! I really didn't expect this to happen. The ground was pretty flat there and I took the board so I could line the jugs up nice and straight and I could keep them tight together. Unbelievable!
Thanks for posting all of this info for up for everybody 6mm!
You are welcome. It's nice to see how the bullets are working and what you can expect from them.
Hey just curious whats your 243 pet load for the partition and accubond.
bigshot, they were all 6mm Remington's and not 243 Winchesters. In my Ruger #1B with the 100 gr. Partition, I am using IMR4350, Winchester cases, and Federal 210 primers. They have been a great bullet for me. I don't have a pet load yet for the Accubond as I just got the bullets. I just loaded some up so that I could get a decent velocity with them so I would be able to compare the three bullets. The Accubonds look to be a great bullet also. My boy's cow last year and a buddies very large 6x6 bull was taken with Accubonds about 4 years ago. In both cases they worked great.
My son's 6mm likes the 90 gr. E-tip and H100V powder. It's been working well for him for several years now. His first elk was with that bullet and rifle. It is a Ruger MKII 6mm Remington.
I think IMR4350 and H4350 would be two good powders for you to try with those bullets in a 243. That H100V might be a good one too. Sorry, but I don't load for any 243's.
My bad, I'm in the process of making recipes for my buddies remmy 700. I have a bunch of the old nosler 100 grain Solid Base bullets and just recently purchased some E-tips at a great price, so gonna be playing with them for a bit.
