Received my ammo and went out to the range. Grouped less than one minute of angle out of my pre-64 Winchester in .264 Winchester magnum. Now that\'s impressive performance out of a fifty year old rifle! The recoil was less than shooting the Winchester 140 gr. Power Point loads. I wonder if this 130 gr. Accubond load would work as a good elk load??? I will probably have to wait until next year to test on elk as I didn\'t draw an elk tag this year. If anyone uses on elk or bear, please let me know how the Accubond performs. The bullet should perform great on deer, antelope, and probably work as well on bear. Elk and moose will be another story, but if the bullet holds together, they should work on elk/moose also. - E. M.
Since the ammunition available for .264 Win. Mag. is highly restricted to one manufacture who at one time produced two size grains of bullets (100 & 140) but currently only 140 grains, it will be nice to have a diferent brand in 130 grains. The .264 Winchester Mag. is a great flat shooting, reach out and touch bullet that got a reputation for having bad recoil when it first became available and scared a bunch of girliemen from even trying. It is great for taking game such as mountain goats among others. As for the recoil, if you know how to hold a rifle when you fire there should be no problem. This would make a great sniper round for he military. Handloading up to 160 grains makes a nice shooting round also using the right bullets/powder. I'm looking forward to trying this new Nosler ammo out! Will report back when I have given it a proper workout hunting. Target was nice & tight for groups out to 100 yds as should be expected! - G. W.
