I'm a little skeptical how well these will hold together when trying to penetrate an elk shoulder if they are advertised to open down to 1300 fps. I know my only experience with an Accubond on a cow elk resulted in the bullet coming apart when it hit the lower spine just behind the rib cage and leaving about a 3" exit hole. I don't plan for shoulder shots, but if it's the only thing I've got, it's nice to know the bullet is up to it and I'm not sure the LRAB is going to be any better than the Berger in that category.
Bottom line for my way of thinking, the 215/230 Bergers have a big BC advantage, and as Jeff showed us last year, the 215 was a very effective killing bullet. I think I'll be sticking with the Bergers or maybe the 200 gr CEB.
