The 150 is not a long range bullet.
Nor is it an elk bullet. 180 minimum 200+ is better

I agree with Mike. The accubond would be my last choice for an elk bullet...particularly at close range where the accubond has the tendency to detonate much like a hunting ballistic tip, SST, etc. will do. Different bullet and atleast 50 grains heavier.
