Re: 25-06 elk bullet recommendations please

thanks for the replies everyone.

I just got off the phone with Nosler. I wanted to get their advice on a bullet rcommendation from their product line. I asked in particular about the Accubond and the E-Tip. He told me that I needed a Partition. After about 5 mins of speaking with him trying to get him to budge on his opinion, he still thinks I need a Partition over the Accubond or the E-tip.

I don't like just one man's opinion. That's why I am a member of this forum. Just wondered if anyone agrees with this man or if the Accubond is indeed the way to go.

Just to be clear...I don't know any better either way, just wanted to throw everything out on the table.

Also, I got to ask...why wasn't the Barnes TTSX on ya'lls list liltank, bigngreen? Ya'll havent' drank that coolaid yet? I've never used them, but everyone else has them on their list of reccommendations for some reason.

Thanks everyone!

So yall think the Bergers will get the penetration required to reliably take out an elk, huh? I figured the responses would be more like tmax264's. Interesting.

Keep'em coming please!
