    Accubond, E-tip, and Partition all from a 6mm Remington at 400 yards for comparison.

    30-06 and 165 gr. Accubond. Sort of a torture test as I hit a couple inches lower than I wanted and took out the particle board, and it went into jugs and still took out four of them.



    The 165 out of my 30-06 at 400 is the top bullet. The lower one is from my son's 300 WSM at 500 yards! I drilled the jugs perfectly and it went through 5 and stopped at 6 like this.



    I had enough left to try a 6mm 100 gr. Partition at 500 and an E-tip at 500 out of my son's 6mm. I hit each row of jugs perfectly but darned if I could find the bullets. They slipped out after going through 4 or 5 and I even had plastic on the ground behind but could not locate them. Maybe they are still going?

    Better put the bullet pictures in. Pretty good performance I would say.

    I'd be drinking a lot of milk to get that many jugs! I use water and these only cost 89 cents each so it's pretty reasonable to purchase them. That's 89 cents per gallon of water at Safeway. Once I catch an e-tip, a Partition, and another Accubond at 500 then I will be done. It's fun, cheap, and I'm getting some really good practice in as well as seeing how these Noslers perform at different ranges. Try it with some other bullets and we can do some comparisons as Nosler are all I shoot.

    Hey 6mm them are some sweet groups for 400 and 500 yards. Just curious, how tight are they at 100.

    Bigshot, the 30-06 will shoot 1/2" at 100 if I do my part as will the 6mm with 100 gr. Partitions. The Accubond load is one I just put together to test it in water and haven't actually played with it much. It shot a 13/16" group at 100. I was going to try and tweak it, but I figured it was okay to test in the jugs and hoped it did okay. I was surprised by how well it did at 400. The conditions got tougher the later it got, but my group at 500 was not nearly as good. It was probably in the neighborhood of 7 inches.
