The LRABs should be in the "for consideration" category. I've had extremely good success with Berger bullets and itís tough for me to look elsewhere. The LRAB would be my choice as of now for elk hunting in the 50 to 900 yard range with a 30 cal. Reasons for considering the change would be the possible short range shot or a hit on the big shoulder bone. I've shot deer before under the 400 yard mark with non controlled expansion bullets. The deer only moved straight down with rib shots. Those bullets are deadly and throw fragments everywhere. There were small chunks of copper and lead all the way up into the backstraps. I've also had good success with AccuBonds using them in my earlier years while elk hunting (600 yards max) before moving to the Bergers. The last box plus of LR 210ís will be loaded for a hunting buddy for his September sheep hunt. Heís an AccuBond fan and will like the new LR line.

Re: Accubond LR Comparison and G7 BC Test

I have 2 boxes to test from my Dads 30/375 S.I. ( should run the 210s at about 2950-3000 fps) and will be used, as you said, for 0-1000 yard elk hunting. After that the 338 Lapua will get the call. Thanks for the effort you put into testing, it is really appreciated.

Re: Accubond LR Comparison and G7 BC Test

Awesome thread!

Thanks for doing the tests and sharing the information.

I love the 140 AB in my two Sendero 7mm STWs and they are very accurate/deadly on whitetails. I am looking forward to shooting them (150 gr. for whitetails and 168/175 gr. for anything bigger) when they become available very soon.

Well worth the extra coin IMHO for heavier game. The original ACCUBOND and Barnes bullets have held up the best on Alaska/Yukon bulls.
That just makes sence in my small brains!

Re: Accubond LR Comparison and G7 BC Test

Very informative and valuable info! This is a lot closer to the b.c. most of us thought it would be. Still, if terminal performance is good, it may be a good option......Rich
