Re: nosler's lr accubond

I was surprised to see some stocks of Nosler's 30 cal regular Accubonds including some 200 grn Ab's at Sportsman's the other day. There wasn't anything there a few weeks before. Nosler must be getting some orders out...

Re: nosler's lr accubond

well The word is out, that Best of the west will have Nosler as a sponser, and will be shooting the new accu-bond long range! they will be using some on a bear hunt in the next 10 days. they are designed like the regular accu-bond in that they are designed to shed 20% of the weight and the back 3/4 of the bullet has a thicker jacket for deep penatration and a bonded core. so as the berger are a broadside bullet, these will be able to take more quatering away shots and still be able to punch thru the paunch to reach the vitals!

Re: nosler's lr accubond

If the reviews come in good, I would like to try them in my .264 Win Mag & I'm fine with a 129gr bullet since this is just my Deer & Antelope Rifle. I'm a little different but I have had great success with Nosler's BT bullets just bang flop most of the time but I've only pushed it to a little over 500 yds. I practice for longer shots but end up sneaking closer or the Deer just bust out underneath me a few hundred yds, I never planned on shooting beyond 800 yds, just my limit & the 129gr .264 would do anything I would ask of it.

The question is......... Is it appropriate to take shots like this at long range..............i.e. >>> "quatering away shots and still be able to punch thru the paunch to reach the vitals"

To me long range shots at game should be restricted to broadside shot only and that is what a long range projectile should be designed to do.

Well I let a real nice 6 x6 bull elk walk because it was a steep quartering shot it was only 331yds but I would have had to hit just in front of the back leg thru the stomach and into the vitals, I didn't take the shot cause I dont think the Berger would have made it to the vitals, I do remember thinking to myself if I had an accu-bond that would be a dead bull!

Thats a "it's your decision" question. There's few guys on here that I have no doubt can do that with monotonous regularity, but like everybody else a guy should base it on, confidence, and real practice, and lastly equipment.

I like your optimism in the Accubond, I don't share it after using it for years. The Accubond was a major reason I gave Bergers a try and haven't looked back.
