Had a bunch of150 Hotcors, 150 Grandslams and 130 Speer Hp, made a few of each and away we go. Got the Hp's going at 3k, but not ideal for big deer or Tahr I think, might give the 125 Accubonds a try if I can find any.
    Did you managed to secure any 125g Accubonds @257weatherby?

    I secured the last 2 boxes from Gunworks. Happy to split them with you.......probably good for me as that will then make me get off my butt and get this 168gr A-Max tested and going.

    Cheers
