    the 140 grain BT, CCI 200 Large rifle primer, 53.0 grains of IMR-4350 is doing the trick. 3 bullets touching at 75 yards (all that was available at sand pit by my house today).

    My Rem 700 in 270 likes both Nosler BT's and AB's with IMR 4350 and Federal gold medal primers. Also Hornady 130gr SST's being pushed with Reloader 22. The Remington likes the bullets to be long with an OAL of 3.420

    I set the bullets to SAAMI maximum O.A.L. They shoot fantastically. If my calculations are correct the 140 grain bullet should be traveling at about 2750 out of the Ruger's little 20" barrel. 4" shorter than the test barrel so I figured take off 150 fps. I hear so many mixed things about the Ballistic Tip. Makes me think I should load some Accubonds, of couse they would have that different B.C... Hopefully the same powder charge would make them shoot with the same accuracy, even if I have to re-sight the rifle.

    I bet it would be darn close it you try. I think they have improved the ballistic tip greatly, but the results I've seen from accubonds are good enough I'll never use ballistic tips for big game again.

    mcseal2 I just happened to check the Nosler 7 book and your figures are spot on for the BC's of the Ballistic Tip and the Accubond. Bigsky I too have had great luck as several other poster's here mention using H4831SC in a friends .270 I load for him. I worked up his load using Federal 215 Magnum primers. IMR4350 seemed to work as well working up my load using Federal 210 primers. The H4831SC load came first though and it worked so well I just left it alone.

    Good. I am great at remembering important numbers with real-world backing like ballistics, other than that I suck at math, LOL. I shoot a lot of 6mm, 6.5mm, 270, and 7mm and know the numbers for most of the popular bullets I've experimented with.

    That sounds like a good plan. I have switched to 225 Accubonds in my .358 JDJ, but have a few hundred 115 gr. Ballistic Tips to shoot up before switching the 25/06.
