bullets have a tapered jacket and a bonded core.
Considered from another angle, the CoreLokt bullet goes subsonic at 900 yards, while the ABLR
stays supersonic clear out to 1,350 yards--exactly half again as far.
For the utmost accuracy, Nosler recommends using the G7 BC when calculating trajectories with the ABLR
bullet line," provided a company news release.
(103) For definitions and examples, as well as a consideration of 'bundling' cases in the US and Europe, see--Ian Wylie, 'When is bundling illegal in Australia under S46 of 47 of the Trade Practices Act 1974 (Cth)?', (2005) 33 ABLR
can be difficult to tune and tends to have lower-than-advertised real-world BCs.
The wind was so slight and the ABLR
bullet so slippery (.561 ballistic coefficient) that I held zero wind.

Long 175-grain 7mm bullets like the ABLR
can really beat the wind--if they have the velocity they need backing them up.
I haven't had a chance to try Nosler's AccuBond Long Range (ABLR
) in my rifle yet, but it may be a viable option because of its bonded-core construction.
Loaded with the 129-grain AccuBond Long Range (ABLR
) bullet, the .26 Nosier produces more energy at 400 yards than the .260 Remington does at the muzzle.
