CraigC, 90 gn Accubonds doing 3450fps.
This seems to get the problem of fouling more. Greg tried heap of bullet makes,† †ABs had the least copper fouling occurring,
105 gn Berger hybrids didnít have this problem, but bit fragile at close range, going to use them for longer shots. They seem to group very well, as do the ABs

I had fouling problems in my 7mm saum with Hornady interbonds with groups opening up after 4-5 shots until I tried the old school Sierra gamekings, much better groups and better kills as well.

Nice work TH, with so much of the ranges being 1080'd near wellington, certainly thins the areas out. Good you still getting amongst them!
