    Thank you! Now you all are going to want to try your loads out at 25 and probably 100 yards at least! Hooked you deep I think. You are going to want to see and know how your own loads work that you are shooting. Just another addiction that is part of this whole outdoors shooting hunting stuff. I am so sorry!

    Since it appears you guys liked this, I'll put up a few more pictures from some testing I did at 100 and 300 yards. I think it build confidence in your cartridge and what you are shooting in it. I had done this last summer of early fall if I remember correctly at the 100 and 300 yards.

    Set-up for 100 yard testing


    A little mayhem as the result of exploding gallon jugs!


    6mm Remington 90 gr. E-tip - 3140 fps : 30-06 165 gr. Accubond 2940 fps : 6mm 100 gr. Partition 3100 fps

    Now how is this for brave? I set up my chronograph in front of the jugs at 300 yards so I could have a true fps at that distance. I know, you can figure that from your muzzle fps, bullet BC, and distance, but I thought it would be fun to do it this way. I was VERY careful when I shot to make sure I didn't drill the chronograph.

    300 yards


    2487 fps through the chrono with the 90 gr. E-tip started at 3140-3160 fps. Error reading appears after I photograph the screen with the digital camera. No idea why.




    Great mushroom and performance after going through 4 jugs and slipping out the back side of number four and missing number 5. IT bounced off the target board and was on the ground!


    I was not able to locate the 165 gr. Accubond out of my 30-06 after it slipped out after going through about jug number 4 also. At distance I think bigger jugs of some type would help.

    And the real world. Here is a 180 gr. Accubond from my son's 300 WSM and his big cow elk this year at 90-100 yards. He broke ribs going in on her right side. The bullet was angled as such that it smashed the lower portion of her spine, angled down and then went out her left shoulder and broker her shoulder. It was about 2" under the hide in the meat in the center of her shoulder. I think that's pretty amazing performance and it really held together well.
