The accubond I used out of my cz550, I used Remington Brass , win mag primers and 72 grains RL 15 . My rifle seemed to like that powder with the 260. Bit over 2750 fps with it.
I recovered a few over the years, all beautiful mushrooms with good retained weight.
Nice thread rum runner ! I have a bunch of imr 4831, imr 4350 and some RL17 i will try.

I took a beauty Belgium Browning...

One of them looks very much like an Aframe, with the bulge . These 500 grain partitions apparently have heavier jackets and the...
I have a bunch of Barnes 450 TSX , and some 500 and 450 grain swift I am looking forward to loading up.
