Default Nosler Custom cartridges with the Accubond bullet.

Hi. Anyone have much experience with Nosler cartridges with the Accubond bullet? I'm considering trying them out with my 6.5x55.

I have found that the accubond bullet doesn't expand much on game. It kind of pencils through. Very accurate though.

well it is designed for controlled expansion and what 70% weight retention?

I think federal tends to load accubonds hotter than the nosler loads.

I use accubonds in an '06. Small sample size of 6 but all have penetrated completely with impressive wound channels and exit holes about the size of a quarter. Ranges were from 60 - 250 yards with 5 being broadsize and one quartering toward me. The bullet on the quartering shot hit her (doe) just in front of the right shoulder and exited about 6 inches in front of the left hind qtr. Accuracy is superb.
