The IB is a great hunting bullet. I've used them on everything from Coyotes to 500lbs plus hogs and everything in between.
I've always gotten very consistent controlled expansion with them even on deer at long range.
More often than not I consistently get a 1.5-2" exit wound with great destruction of vitals in the middle.
I've shot them mostly in the 7mm Rem and 7mm STW at pretty high velocities. At lower velocities you might be better off with the Nozler Accubond, or Swift Sirocco.
The Swift has become my go to bullet of choice for the long range work.
The Accubond and Interbond are very similar bullets and I think if you'll look between the two the AB has the better BC, generally about even with the Scirocco's in the same caliber/weight but I prefer the Sirocco on the long range work due to better expansion.
