Jeff,

They were more tears than holes ranging from 1" to just at 2".

Ethan Parke........roped the deer in 1953. Put tags in his ears turned him loose then shot him in 1955. Always liked this pic
The story was told to me by his wife who owned the little motel we stayed at on a deer hunt in Malta Idaho about 17 years ago...... Youll never see that again. Just a cool pic of Idaho deer huntin history

Re: Accubond LR Comparison and G7 BC Test

Excellent work MMERSS! I was not inclined to change my current load using Berger 210's in my 300 WM but based on your test and information provided by others, I will definitely give them a try. While I have not had any issues with killing effect of the Bergers on medium game between 500 and 1000 yards, I have always been somewhat skeptical about performance on larger game. The bullet fragmentation that you show for the AMAX are identical to the kind of fragments that I have recovered on numerous game animals I have shot with the Bergers at the ranges stated above. Given the BC's of the AB appear very close to the Bergers, I wouldn't have too much of a difference, if any to my current ballistics info. Hopefully they produce the same accuracy and ES. Thanks again for sharing this useful information.
