ammo bankDoes anyone have any experience shooting this grain weight in 30-06?I am wondering how it performs as a varmit round, especially long distance up to 300-500 yrd.

As far as I know those are no longer in production. I shot some years ago but wasn't satified with their accuracy in my .30-06. I wouldn't trust them at over 200 yards and then only on a coyote sized object. The idea was there, but they weren't very popular and that price is WAY up there. :D

I still have a few boxes of them. I remember them not being that great for accuracy. At the price they want for them I might just have to wrap them up and sell them when I retire. By then they ought to be 50 + a box LOL...Walt

25 years ago I only had one rifle, the .30-06, so I had to use the accellerator round and it worked just fine on groundhogs but I never shot more than 220 yards. I was so amazed that I got the ground hogs that I did. No complaints from me. You can still order that round today for something like $22./box of 20.

You can still get them in 30-30 and 30-06 but the .308 win has been droped. I recently had a local gun shop get a couple boxes for me to try out. I tried them in three of my '06s and I got 3 to 4 inch groups with them. The worst part was that the rifle that shot them the best was an auto loader and it wouldn't cycle them. :angry:
My guns are mine, they aren't for sale, and I only give guns to people that I really like. So I guess the government is **** out of luck.

Wow! I was pretty sure they'd stopped making them. :( But you can see why they should stop. It's hard to hit anything with them. :angry:

I recently had a local gun shop get a couple boxes for me to try out.

How long ago was this? I had a guy tell me a few weeks ago that you couldn't buy these in CA anymore because there were no rifling marks left on the bullet to trace with. I didn't think he was telling the truth, but who knows with CA's gun laws... :rolleyes:

I've heard people saying that they weren't available in cali. for that reason for quite some time now. Richard at the gun shop said that's B.S. and got in a bunch of 30-30 and 30-06. I got a box of each a month or two before deer season. He may still have some.
