I am using IMR 7828 with the accubond lr 150gr and get around 2800fps. I have used the accubond before in 140 and its great but I want to use the 150 for my cow elk hunt this year. What should I limit my range to and do you think It would penetrate the shoulder at say 400yds? Or should I try a different bullet oe try to get 2900 fps? Should I limit the shots to less than 400yds? Btw the Accubond 150 gr LR has a BC of .625.
Thanks for your thoughts and advice.
My experience with "All" Accubonds has been great. They Have performed well in 6.8 spc,7/08.7 WSM, 300 RUM, 338 RCM, 338 RUMs, and from 110 to 250 grain bullet weights.
The 150 .277 should be a winner on elk in my opinion if you stay under 400 yards to keep the
energy at or above 1500 ft/lbs.
