remington 260gr accutip

Postby Jdkg2010 » Wed Jan 09, 2019 11:25 pm

has anyone used the Remington 260gr accutip during a hunting extravaganza, if so how did it perform. i am getting excellent results accuracy wise from the ammunition but the projectile looks similar the the Remington golden sabers. we all know the golden sabers have a bad habit of jacket core separation and bad weight retention. any information would be greatly appreciated.

I never even heard of them. Who has them for sale? I'm kind of intrigued.

They've been around for a while: Exhibit A :roll:

In Theory, there is no difference between theory and practice. In Practice, there is.

Just to add my experience, even though similar experiences are probably brought up in Hoot's thread.
The Remington ammo leaves a lot to be desired in just about every way. Never took game with them, but heard of them having inconsistent performance. I bought some a few years back, ended up with 5 or 6 different lots, only one had acceptable accuracy (go figure I only had one box from that lot). The rest were horrible. Biggest issues were case mouth taper, OAL, and bullet tension. I stopped shooting them after a few boxes, and sat on them. When I got into reloading, I decided to play with them. I took one lot I had a couple boxes of that shot ok, sorted them out into groups, then adjusted OAL's and crimp's. They grouped much better, but still not great. Ended up selling the rest off.

I really like them. Same bullet they use in 20 gauge premier ammo. I do like hornady better so far. I'll do a on game comparison in Nov. On YouTube I watched guys using same projectile in a 20 ga. on deer @300 yards. I can get the same speeds with a lot less barrell in the bushmaster

When I first got my 450 American the Remington bullet is all they had at the time and I wanted to sight the gun in the next day so bought them . Shot 2 deer with that round with no pass through , but the entry hole was the size of a silver dollar and lots of blood. Switched to Hornady this year and the deer I shot didn't far and had good blood , but I've been hearing some bad results with the Hornady. I'm undecided on the two rounds

I tried the Remmys in my AR when they first came out but I couldn't keep them under 3" where as the Hornady 250 were 1 1/4" all day long. I'm just not a FTX fan based on past performance.
