0.338 SMK or NAB?

I am looking at the 0.338 250 grain SMK or NAB @ 3000 fps.

BC's are very close 0.587 vs 0.575, does anyone have any hunting results with either of these bullets...good or bad? Thanks.

Here is a exit on a Antelope with a 300gr SMK. I'd say good!!
Shot a Elk at 525 yards and had excellent results.

Thanks for that..not much tracking I bet

If the Accubond came in a 300 grain version with a BC very close to the SMK would you still choose the SMK?

If it were me it would come down to the one that shot better...I know thats not much help.

I have never fired either of the 250's but from my past experiences with the Accubonds it is a safe bet considering the differences in BC it could be a toss up.

I would go with (and did) the 300 grain SMK over the AB or 250 SMK much less wind drift with the 300 SMK

Thanks, I wish that I could but I don't have the twist for that one ....

If the new Berger or A-Max come out with a 0.900 BC then I will start a new build with a 1:10 barrel!
