Fellow Reloaders,

Hope all is well out is Nosler reloading land and I hope Santa is bringing everyone Venison Backstrap for Christmas dinner!

I have a request for one of Santa's elves who has the quickload program. I would like to please ask for a simulation of 2 powders I am considering for my 260Rem, 129Grn Nosler LRAB load development. The specs are below.

My specs are:
Load: 260 Rem
Bullet: 129Grn Nosler LRAB
Powder: H4350, RL19
Case: Nolser Custom Brass.
Primer: Remington 9.5 LR
Gun: Browning Abolt II
Barrel: 22", 1:10" Twist
OAL: 2.8"

Also, If anyone has any tips on the LRAB bullet. What I have seen so far is a recommendation of 0.1" off the lands to start. I will need to do at least that for my rifle. My Land engagement is at 2.906" and my magazine is a tight 2.810". Was wondering if there are any other tidbits or insights.

Thanks,
Russ

Don't know about the elf business, but this should get you going. I do allow ~0.100 inches off the lands with both the AB and the ABLR. I treat bonded bullets identical to monolithic bullets.
