    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.

    Once again an excellent and informative post! Thank you for sharing. If I may ask, what powder are you loading in the .300 WSM ?

    Bob I'm using H4831SC with Federal 215 Match primers. It shoots about 3/4 at 100 yards but is only at 2800 fps. I was looking for a bit more so I'm going to play with some other powders. It sure worked on my son's elk though last year.

    Great results, and great shooting. Thanks for sharing. Gotta love those accubonds, the few I have recovered from game look and weigh very similar. I guess I'm to much of a magnification nut, I like 14-18x on the top end for long range shooting. It seems to me like to much of the target gets covered otherwise when shooting long at yotes. Sure doesn't look like the 4 and 6x hurt your accuracy any though, critters beware!

    The shot on the right dot is after scope adjustment. I sight them in for 2 3/4" high at 100 yards.


    The right target on the 6mm is the same 100 gr. Partition with a different powder. Both about the same fps and hit almost exactly to same POI. Lucky on that, not sure, but I'll take it.
