Re: 140 NBT vs 140 Accubond
I used to shoot 140 SGK with excellent accuracy. The problem was, even on broadside shots, I seldom had pass throughs on whitetails. A friend of mine said they seemed to act like the BT's his 7mm shot. EXPLOSIVE!!! I wanted the ability to shoot a deer head on or through the shoulders if that was my only shot opportunity, and I just did not feel comfortable. So I switched to the Accubonds. I have not looked back. These things are just as accurate as my SGKs, and those were accurate.
I should also mention that I shot a decent size doe (2 1/2 yrs old) this fall during a cull hunt. I shot her facing me. The bullet hit just to the inside of her right shoulder and passed all the way through. The bullet exited through the pelvic area!!! She was only about a 100yrds, but I was impressed. This is out of my .280 pushing the bullets at about 3000fps.
They expand good, and I have the penetration, so they're a winner in my book!
