100 Ballistic tip at 3400fps for deer

Heading to kansas this Dec. for whitetail and was thinking of taking my 264 win mag.. i had 5 120gr x bullets loaded to try from awhile back, I tried them and they are all over.. I was thinking of trying 100gr BT. I am not sure if they are to light.. Anybody try them on deer at 3400fps ? .. Thanks

Ballistic tips at that speed may be a problem. I have had BT's in my 25-06 "blow up" on a regular basis. I would suggest trying a 130-140 gr bullet. I killed my sheep, antelope and deer all w/ Berger 140's in my 6.5-06. They are running just over 3000 FPS. 4 shots and 3 animals. 100 to 563 yards.
I hear good things about the Swift Scirocco's. Can be a little finicky to work up loads. Lots of folks like the Accubonds in the .26 caliber. My taxidermist went to Africa this year w/ a 6.5. He tells me he killed 31 animals w/ the AB's including 4 kudu and 4 gemsbuck. All 1 shot kills at 300-600 yards. So he is sold on them. If you go to the BT's use as heavy for caliber as you can get. Good luck on your hunt. Bruce

I'd advise against the 100 Gr BT's at 3400 fps. Best case they make a terrible mess and worst case they blow up and you lose a trophy. The 130 Gr Nos AB and the 129 Gr Horn IB work well for me.

I was worried that the bt's would not hold up..The AB's only come in 140's. I am going to try hornady 130 interbonds .. thanks

Re: 100 Ballistic tip at 3400fps for deer

Just got back from Nebraska and we shot all our deer with Nosler Accubond bullets. MY son and I shot our deer with 140 Accubonds out of 280 Rem rifles. My friend shot his with 130 Accubond out of a 260 Rem.. Another friend shot his with a 130 Accubond out of his 270 Win.. I hand loaded all the rounds that we used. In my opinion the Accubond is one great deer bullet. The 129 Interbond would also work out of your gun, but I would go with a 130 Accubond.


From my experience I would not use the BT at 3400 ft/sec to shot deer. It would make a good varmint bullet!

they make a 140gr ballistip tip, a 130 an 140 gr accubond and hornady makes a 129 and 140 sst...i have 3 264's and love them, i only have personal experience with the 130 accubombs on game animals and it works quite well...but ive had mixed experiences as far as meat damage...sometimes they make a mess and sometimes they dont...i really wanna try the 127gr barnes lrx

Re: 100 Ballistic tip at 3400fps for deer

I ordered the 130 AB and try them.. One thing about the 264 bothers me. In the nosler book you can get 2950fps out of a 270 win with up to 10gr less powder than it takes a 264win to get a 100fps faster. What are the benifits of the 264 ? and why only 100fps with 10grs of powder ? ..Thanks
