With that much powder behind it, stick with the heavy bullets.

I highly recommend the 140 grain bullets in the 26. The best shooting bullet I have found is the 140 Accubond. The 143 ELD-X has also done well.

The 129 LR AB, and all LR AB bullets, have a much softer lead inside the bullet. It's so soft, if I am not careful during bullet seating, the seating stem of the die will mar the bullet and leave a ring around the bullet. For a big magnum like the 26, I would not recommend this bullet.

Also, forget about shooting any Berger in the 26. I tried most of them, and had poor results with them also, which surprised me.

If you need some match grade 26 ammo loaded right, let me know!

Appreciate the info Chad! Ended up ordering some 140 Accubond's last night. I'll let you know on the match ammo!
