Here´s some pics of a deer hunt last week.I wont bother everyone with the details, so to make a long story short, I spotted this guy and prepared for the shot with my factory rem mountain rifle in 7 rm cal.
Bullet was an accubond 160 leaving the muzzle at some 2910 ft/s ( got a pretty short 23 " barrel). Distance was 360 yds, aimed for the shoulder and took the shot. The deer stiffened but did not move.. I was pretty sure I´d hit it but just in case took a second shot, and he just went down.
On arriving to the deer it was clear that the first shot was spot on, went in through the right shoulder destroying the bone, went through the other side leaving a not too big exit wound.
Second shot went through the rib cage and also exited. It had been clearly unncecessary.
This deer weighed over 300 lbs. so I am now absolutely confident in the accubond... I had been using the 162 amax for smaller game during the last year but was not sure it would work on a shot like thbis,. My impression is that the amax bullet would have just exploded upon impact on tbhe shoulder.
Here´s the effect of the firs shot ( skin lifted for the pic, entrance hole was caliber size and barely visible)
Here´s the first shot exit
Here´s the second shot exit:
