Nosler long range accbond. Any kills???

Has anyone shot anything with the new long range accubonds. If so what happened both good and bad. Also any pictures.

Also how are the b.c's working out. Thanks

    My brother shot this coues deer in October. 810 yards. .270 Winchester. 150 grain LRAB. Shoulder and vitals completely destroyed, no exit. BC worked for his calculations.

    There was a report here, but nothing in detail on how the bullet performed: Great Gun, Great Shot Great Guy

    Thanks for the information. It makes me a little worried if at 810 with a 270 Winchester you cannot get through a coes deer. I have heard these bullets are blowing worst than a ballistic tip. A few animals are not enough information to judge. Maybe a few big bull elk and a moose wouldn't hurt.

    I don't suppose you have a photo of the bullet remnants?

    He didn't look for any and I wasn't with him to look myself. Sorry. He has a bull elk hunt next week that he might use this combo on. He hasn't decided yet.

    I could have been more specific too. The shot was quartering away, the bullet enetered about halfway back, destroyed the vitals and broke the off side shoulder. Decent penetration and performance considering.
