    6 mm accubond

    Hey team, wondering if anyone knows where or has any spare accubonds in 6mm around 90grn?. Seems to be all sold out from what I can find

    Shot some nosler factory ammo recently and it went bloody well.

    Cheers

    6mm stuff is even more sparce than 6.5 stuff presently. If you cant find the accubond, the hornady internond is a good alternative.

    2 packs of Nosler 6mm 80g BTV (Ballistic Tip Varmint)

    5 packs of Nosler 6mm 100g Partition and 4 packs 6mm 85g Partition

    10 packs of Sierra 6mm 90g TGK (Game Changer)

    2 packs of Hornady 6mm 87g SP Varmint

    PM if any might be of interest

    Cheers Craig

    Should be fine, they have a long bearing surface and 95 gr is not heavy for calibre, typically it's not until you get to the likes of Berger 105 VLD, 103 gr ELDX or the likes before you will require a 1:8 or faster twist in 6mm.
    Just going to take a look around the next bend...

    Grab a pack or two of those 87gr hornady SP that @doubleshot is offering. Probably the best bang for buck bullet in the 243

    Certainly should, I'm guessing it's a 22" barrel.
