Therein lies the rub, the search for the mystical bullet that does everything at all ranges ;)
I use ABs as I've had good results from close range to 700ish yds and longer shots would be rare. I have not shot a lot of BTs but the ones I did were at relatively close range and were far too fragile for me to want to hunt big game with.
I guess in an ideal world I'd load up with a good short- to mid-range bullet, but know my dope to drop in a longer range bullet if the opportunity presented itself...
