Gonna try 140gr. Accubonds too but Tim said they'll run about 200fps slower. It's going to be hard to give up that 200fps when the shot could be 400 yards.

Whoa there,

Run the numbers... if you're wanting to shoot at 400 yards, you will be no worse off with the 140 AB versus the 120 BT. Besides that, if you get a closer shot (say under 150 or so), you'll not have to worry about the bullet failing.

At 400 yards with a 200 yard zero and 10mph crosswind:

The 120BT will drop 14 inches at 3500 fps with 10.2 inches drift

The 140AB will drop 15.2 inches at 3300fps with 9.3 inches drift

The 150BT will drop 15.7 inches at 3250fps with 9.3 inches drift

(Assuming noslers printed bc's are correct)

Beyond 400 yards, the heavier bullets with the higher BC's will really begin to shine even more. AND, you'll probably be able to get closer to 3350fps with the 140's.

I love the 140 AB's out of my 7mag at 3175 fps almost as much as I loved the old 150 BT's out of it.
