Shooters pro shop has some as over-runs. Just a wee bit of savings.
I've been using them as my 7mm STW mag load for spook and shoot as my long range 162gn A maxs are too fragile for anything up close to be 100% confident of a humane kill.
They seem pretty tough and lung shot red deer tend to wander off alittle before they fall over.
I have recovered one 160gr Accubond from a smaller sika hind i shot on the run at 20 yards, took out about 7 ribs and stopped in her hip bone.
I use to use the 140gr Accubonds in a 7 rem mag and they put the animals down quicker.
