I've shot a decent number of animals from 200 to 700 yards with the 200AB, I have no complaints. The one elk I shot with them was the longest range animal and took 3 in the lungs and took 5 minutes to fall over, but the post mortem indicated that it was not for lack of expansion of the bullet. Plenty of damage I just didn't break the bone structure. Three deer shot in the 500-600 yard range, incredible damage. Animals 400 yards and under, I can't imagine what more you could expect from any bullet.

It's one of the few bullets I trust across the full range of distances. But I don't try to push the 300WM past 800 yards on game either.

Here is what 3 exit holes look like using 200 grain AB's on a Shirus Moose at 474 yards look like. Have shot several elk between 50 and 250 yards with them and the 200 g Accubonds performed perfectly every time. I would feel better with a Berger at 700 plus yards though.

Any elk is a good elk!
