Based on gel test footage and some personal testimony from a friend of mine. The Accubond seems to need higher velocity to expand fully, much like the mono-metals. Partitions seem to be more consistent on expansion and still retain good weight.Why?
Nosler's load data for the 30-06 uses a 1:10 barrel for testing the 150 grain bullets. I don't see where you got the 1:12 number, but wherever it is, my guess is it means 1:12, or faster (meaning 1:10 would be fine). I think you're good. My advice: Go with a 165 instead. You won't notice the difference in recoil and drop isn't much worse, but BC is better for longer shots and it would make me more comfortable if critters larger than deer were on the menu. I've never used Partitions, but they're obviously legendary and I can attest that the accubond is one sweet bullet! Good luck!I have a Nosler ammunition specific question, I have seem many threads on twist, but nothing lines up directly to my question. I was all set to switch to a Nosler partitioned or accubond ammo but have put a hold on that because the ballistics page on the site states a twist requirement of 1:12.
I have a Remington 7600 in 30-06 with a 1:10. Id like to sight in with a 150gr. any comments or other round advice?
