    I have had nothing but excellence from my 358Win in performance with 225gr bullets at the range and on game. Using 200gr SS NF, 225gr Sierra and Accubond I got very good accuracy. I have been trying to nurse out the same accuracy from the 225gr Accubonds that I was getting with the 225gr Sierra SBT. The reason being is that I am able to get 65 - 80fps faster velocities with the Accubonds in my specific rifle with the same charge of powder. I final found the OAL that gives me the same accuracy with the Accubond as with the Sierra. Both have been very effective on game, but I am so happy to have the Accubond shooting so well and with very fast velocities but with out pressures. I even got the 200gr North Fork SS to shoot exceptionally well. Great morning at the range indeed.
