Accubonds need a bit of a jump to the lands. Start at about 0.050” off and work shorter. They seem to want a running start.

Exact same handload my Uncle Bart worked up for our 1938 made Pre-64 Model 70. 1/2 MOA load. Used 50 grs IMR 4064 with a WW Silvertip 150gr with the same accuracy.

Remember.... they're full time deer......we're part time hunters!

i have two 06's one is an ADL wood stock and the other is an SPS. both are Remington 700's. both rifles are loaded with 54.5 grains of IMR 4350 shooting Hornady 165 SPBT. that load for both rifles have taken deer with no problems. good luck with your rifle.

My Browning A Bolt 2 likes 57.5 grains of H4350 in Hornady brass, CCI BR2 large rifle primers and Sierra 165 gr Game King bullets. I'll cover 3 shots with a nickle with this load at 100 yards and a good many deer have dropped in there tracks to this load. "NOTE" This is getting up towards max. load so start low and work up, I don't recommend or advise anybody to start with this load, it is for my rifle only as yours might be different.

waynzee, i was taught by an old friend that when working a load for a rifle was to take the minimum and maximum loads and start in the middle and work up in 1/2 grain incrimants for larger rifles. i load 5 rounds of each and then head for the range. i use separate targets marked for each load. when i get the group i want thats what i use.

I’ve gone to a much different load development protocol. A search on the Satterlee method or Satterlee ladder would get you the info in a better description than I can produce.

Makes load work much simpler.

A quick glance at the Nosler reloading manual shows that they recommend the following as the most accurate:

57 grains of IMR -4350 which will give 2832 fps with the 165 gr. AccuBond. They suggest an OAL of 3.320"

https://load-data.nosler.com/load-da...6-springfield/

Personally, I use 55 gr of IMR-4350 with 165 grain Ballistic Tips. This is a sub MOA round in my Tikka.
