well its not that i cant go to a store and buy them, i just gotta drive 90mi to do it, but the last time i was in that town they have three bigger name stores and none of them had the 6.5 accubond in stock and i ordered them through m-i-d-w-a-y and now they dont even have any, and noslers own site it out they dont even have any 2nds. i think they do so many runs a year is what the deal is.

There's a lot of Accubonds out there for the taking, just no 6.5's. Either the sales aren't there for a production run or the caliber just plain sucksDevil

They do the different calibers and weights on production runs, must not be the demand for the 6.5 or maybe there was too much and they haven't geared back up to resupply. Figures as soon as I'm going to want some 130's they dry up. I'm sure someone has em'....tried sinclair?

i think its the opposite guys i think there is a huge demand for them and not enough production, i talked to a salesman the other day and he said he has sold 10 guns in 264 cal in the last three days and he said if i would have told him that 3 weeks ago he would have bet against me. the .260 and the 6.5x55 are a stronger sale than one realizes i think

competitor has every 6.5 Nosler in stock except the 130 accubond with no b/o allowed probably because the new Nosler Barnes TTSX copy will be replacing it.

SORRY CHARLIE!!!!!!!!!!! No TTSX will be replacing the Nosler, It CAN'T unless Barnes drops their pride based price factor, and decides to actually TRY and compete.

I agree the barns will not take over the AB's, The TTSX,TSX'S shoot like crap for just about everyone i know.

Yeah,I haven't tryed any yet but they say when loading them the powder needs to be dropped way way down due to the bullet ogive and the drag it has thru the tube.

Initial accuracy tests of the e tip were nothing to brag about. basically it's a TTSX with conventional bullet jacket material, some lead inside and barnes style grooves. penetration was almost as good as the TTSX. loading data is nothing special and their caliber to length ratio is no problem as, with Barnes, you can use a lighter bullet to get the same killing power.
anyone who cant get a TTSX or TSX to shoot well is not reading the instructions supplied in every box. having shot them in everything from a NIB 300 WSM to an 1886 Winchester Extra light made in 1913 and every caliber from .224 to .460, I can assure you that they shoot as well as any controlled expansion hunting bullet and better than a lot. no, you don't "need" them to kill a 100 pound whitetail, a plain old unbonded soft point will do it very well. however, if you are "cross species" hunting, say deer, elk & moose, especially with a sub 30 caliber rifle, they do give you the assurance of reliable penetration and bone breaking matched by only a few other premium bullets (nosler partition, A frame, woodleigh)
if you subscribe to African Hunter (published in Africa) you can see that almost all PHs endorse the TSX and Barnes solids as excellent choices. it comes down to what works for you, there is no "right & wrong" but the barnes can be counted on to do the job.
