    Have been really wanting to get my hands on some of these, would like to try and get a load developed for this fall's hunting season. It seems though that Midway is just teasing me pushing back their release date. Now shows not in stock till early-mid September. I haven't been able to get to my local-ish stores that carry reloading supplies and was wondering if these had been hitting store shelves before Larry and the rest of the on-line retailers could get their hands on them...

    I was in my local Sportsman's Warehouse yesterday and saw some of the new LR Accubond's on the shelf. I've got a lot on my plate right now, and I'm not really interested in working up any new loads at the moment, so I didn't look that closely, but I'm pretty sure they were 30 caliber. So yes, it looks like they are starting to show up.

    "...Midway is just teasing..." More likely to be Nosler. Midway has no control over release dates. They're just a retailer. A 190 won't do anything a 180 won't do anyway. Mind you, I know a guy who won our DCRA(same idea as NRA shooting) Sniper competition with a custom built .300 Win Mag and 190 grain match bullets. 1,000 yards shooting.

    I reckon they would be perfect for the 30-06. Maybe 2750fps. Should carry the mail well.

    My local Sportsman's Warehouse had 270 and 7mm on the shelf today. Didn't see any 30-cal. I noticed they were actually quite a bit cheaper than the regular AB's, so the 270's came home with me. Still don't know when I'm going to have the time to work up any new loads yet. But, I'll fit it in somewhere.
