Thanks jeffbird. Would I be better off to go with the 140g BT with lower bc, go to the 150g BT, or 140g AB at 700y?(same BC)(deer at 200 pounds or less)

Harv,
I defer to others with more experience, but the prevailing majority opinion seems to prefer Accubonds over the Ballistic Tips. While there is lots of focus on the board on the longrange terminal effects, sometimes the deer are up close and the majority opinion appears to be that the BT's are not as strong for the velocities you might have up close.

Re: Accubond at 1700 f/s

Thanks again. I think I'll give them a try. My shots are usually under 700y (500ish yards is the longest shot on game so far) but have been shooting the gong at 750y quite well. Just wanted to be sure the bullet would do its job if the long shot showes up. Have to see if I can get them to shoot in my gun.
