I only use 100 ballistic tips in my Remington sendero 26 inch 264 with 68.0 grains of RL 22 for deer hunting and are very accurate.

Re: 264 WM bullet choices

I have a 264 Win mag with a 27 3/4" Shilen 9 twist barrel on a Rem 700 action that is a screamer and a tack driver. My deer hunting load that I took 4 deer with this year from 98 to 275 yards with this year consisted of a 130 gr Nosler Accubond, 66.5 grs Retumbo, case was WW reformed 7mm Rem mag, CCI 250 primer. The bullet is loaded 10 thousands off the lands and it averages 3350 fps and will shoot one ragged hole for 3 shots @ 100 yards. All deer were killed with one shot each and all dropped in their tracks. Three had exits about the size of a golf ball but I did recover one bullet from a buck shot a 111 yards that was faceing me with a slight left shoulder angle. Bullet entered the front edge of the left shoulder and destroyed it and made soup out of it's vitals and I found the bullet in the right ham when I was cutting up the meat. It was a textbook mushroom and the weight was 71 grs. I like those Accubonds. My rifle also shoot pretty good with 140 gr bullets. Because of the posibility of close shots as well as long range shots I went with the 130 Accubond because I was worried about bullet blow up with the velocity I get out of that long barrel and I will probably stick with it.
