Re: .30 cal bullet for elk.

I'm not exactly of the same opinion as Jeff. I like the accbond's in the 180. I use 71 grains of 4350 with the 180s and get good accuracy and really good velocity. It kills elk dead.

Re: .30 cal bullet for elk.

Here is a report from my entire season last fall. later in the thread there many pics of terminal damage, impact velocities, distances and so on.

Take a look and see if the bullet I used will suit your needs.

Comparing the Berger 210 VLD to the 215 Hybrid
