Re: Opinions Please?

Well said. I too have always been a fan of breaking both shoulders instead of behind the shoulder. I have found that it does damage a lot of the meat though. I kind of would rather be sure he doesnt go far so I shoot them there anyway. It's been a couple years since Ive killed anything with my 7mm only because I enjoy my 270wsm so much. But its definitely going to see some field time for practice for this coming season. It's my most accurate gun I own and I'd like to push it out to Longer ranges. If I was able to make due with 140gr accubond out to 550yards with the 270wsm. I know my 160accubonds in 7mm should be able to go a little further. But I do video most of my hunts, so your right on that one. Looks much better when they are DRT

Your 7mm rem mag will drop an animal on the spot just as quick as any you mentioned. Just depends on shot placement.

Different bullets have different affects on terminal ballistics. A slight change from one rifle to another, not so much. Shot placement is the key factored in a bang flop but added security can come from a properly chosen bullet.

Re: Opinions Please?

What do you all think about the 160gr accubond? So far I have only shot paper with that load. I used to use 150smk but prior to that I would shoot factory ammo...federal 165 gr Sierra Gameking. I like the accubond out of my 270wsm I shoot 140gr out of it, love the performance. Would the 160gr be good out of my 7mm? My gun so far on paper absolutely love it. It will out shoot the 22-250s I got and they shoot great!

Are we still talking about the 7mm Remington Magnum. It would appear the information continued to get broader by the latest post.

I have only seen a few Deer and Elk shot with Accubonds. They have performed perfectly every time. The longest was a 470yd shot on a 310 bull with a 300WSM shooting 165's. Double lung, complete pass through, dead 100yds away. I would not hesitate to use a 160 in a 7mm Remington Magnum for Deer and Elk.

The 160 AB is an excellent hunting bullet.
