Update:
I’ve been working with Nosler quite a bit since I received the email that I had pasted on to this thread. Extremely long story short, they agreed to lightly relap the barrel and re-shoot the gun which produced no difference in performance with either the 140gr Accubond or the 142ABLR.

After hearing this and reading up people’s experience with ABLR’s, I decided to give up on that bullet performing well in this rifle at this time. I asked them if they had fired any of their 140gr “Custom Competition” in my rifle beucase I was curious if the accuracy had improved beyond what I had seen with that round in my rifle.

My rep told me that they had not fired that round so I asked them to do so to see if any of the work they’d done had improved the accuracy with that round. They graciously agree to re-shoot it again with that round and on Monday, they sent me then results which I’m very pleased with.

I’ve pasted the ballistic report below and I’ve asked them to ship my rifle back to me which they’ve agreed to do and they’re including using the test ammo that was used. Needless to say, I’m grateful for their efforts to rectify the accuracy issue and I now have the confidence in the rilfle to use it for its intended purposes.

Once I get it back, I’m going to mount my newly purchased Leupold VX-5HD 4-20x52 and take it to the range and see how it does. I’m looking forward to shooting it again and hopefully taking some Deer with it in a few months!

Dang, not too bad. Looks like it’ll serve you well. Looking forward to seeing your range reports.

Not too shabby. Like I said before I have tried the ABLR in a myriad of rifles. Only one shot them well

Took it to the range yesterday after mounting my new Leupold VX5HD and put some rounds through it. Best group was what is pictured below and after subtracting .264, it measures .775 MOA. This group was with the 140gr Accubond so I’m pleased with that.

I’d imagine it’ll only get better as you shoot it as well. Great bullet.

You have every reason to be pleased. Fine riflery.

I love to shoot it and that’s part of the reason why I didn’t just throw my hands up and trade it in on something else. I think I can get it to group tighter when the barrel is a little cooler and it’s not 102° outside with a +3000DA.
