That is the reason I pack the 338/35's.. They have a solid affect on stuff!

I launched a few 260 ABs at our 800 yard gong for the heck of it this last weekend. Got pretty dang close (within a foot or two) for just holding elevation and letting it rip. Recovered a few from the drit. MOST IMPRESSIVE!!! I'll get pics up tonight.

Nice, spin that dial Jake! I think your Leupy might have enough in it to get out there!

Here they are 211gr. and 216gr. Widest point is a .65". A 160 AB in-between them for comparison.
Pretty impressive if you ask me.

Cool. I hope it works out well at the range and in the field for you. Even though I have a mess of other bullets for the .375 (several hundred) I have no problem buying these Nosler 260's. They're a real good bullet for my uses with this rifle.

Clearly, the AccuBond worked as designed. Great confidence builder to see the pictures, Guy.

Same bullet, from that 2013 bear hunt. 218 grains, .73" wide.

Now, if I could just find more of these 260 gr .375" Accubonds. They're scarce!

That looks very good, I still think the 260 gr AB is one of the best all around bullets in the 375 H&H and Ruger, I liked what they did on grizzly and black bear when I still had the 375 Ruger.

That's a pretty serious hole. Hope you can find more of them, I will keep my eyes out for you Guy.. Probably wouldn't hurt to stash a few on my shelf in case I ever find a wayward 375 needing a home in the future. :mrgreen:

My 378 Bee loves them also. with 106 gr of H4350 it is smoking at 3150 fps. Accuracy is great also.

I'd really like it if you ended up with my Model 70 someday Scotty. But, I need to take it to Africa first! :grin:

Fotis & Gerry - I agree - for my purposes I think it's a terrific bullet. Accurate and performs very well on game.

BTW - my Alaskan outfitter, Lyle Becker, was using handloaded 260 gr Accubonds in his 375 H&H last spring. He's got a very battered Rem 700 that he's improved a bit.

No flies on the venerable 375 H&H

Don’t count the 260gr Partition out while waiting for a few Accubonds. I started my load development with the Partitions because Accubonds couldn’t be found. Interestingly enough, I was able to get the Partitions to shoot into 1.5” at 300 yds when fired from my 375 Ruger.
Kind of makes the Accubond unnecessary.

That is some mighty fine accuracy! (y)

The 260 gr Partition gives up a lot of BC, but... accuracy like that is mighty impressive. Lately I've been shooting 270 gr Hornady RNSP bullets, and have been impressed with them out to 300 yards as well.
