Brown Dog & Ian M:

The thing I found very interesting is what you related to and that is the fact that the bonding process kept the core intact and in fact, even on the peeled jacket segments, the bonded lead is visible. Here are two more pics of the same bullet and you can plainly see in the frontal view that everything is intact. I have seen similar jacket only recoveries from BT's in the past also. I have been very impressed with the AccuBonds.

The camera is a Sony DSC-F717 with a Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar lens. It takes great pictures with super res and has features that make taking pictures fun and easy.

Dr. John:
Below is a cross canyon view of one of the areas where we hunt deer and sometimes elk. This side hill view was taken from about 900- 1000 yards. There are several places where the deer sometimes can be spotted in the cliffs at ranges up to 1000-1500 yards. The angles both uphill and downhill can be extreme at times so the ACI comes in handy along with a laser rangefinder.

Ian:
The camera takes images at up to 5+ megs of resolution and the crispness of the images from macro to tele are super. The only problem with the super high res pics are the size which dictates that for posting and e-mail they usually have to be reduced.

Re: Worn out AccuBond

You will find that with the other bonded bullets - obviously the bonding does a great job of retaining bullet weight and mass. Seems the bonding also has some effect on the shape of the frontal mass, some bullets are very flat on front, some more round.
Nosler would be very happy with the bullet performance you have shown us.
Interested to know what camera you are using, the images are very nice.

Re: Worn out AccuBond

That is a mighty fine looking Mark V. I'm waiting for my new Accumark to come in. I ordered it in 257 WBY. I'm thinking the new 110 grain Accubond will be a good place to start.
