I've killed 2 antelope with the 160 gr Accubond and I would highly NOT recommend it. It made a nice little hole going in and a nice little hole going out. One of the bucks took a round just forward of the left flank, and the bullet traveled all the way forward and came out just in front of the right front shoulder. Tiny little exit wound. The SMK, on the other hand, makes big bloody exit wounds in antelope.

In my experience the SMK's do the same thing on deer-- even 300+ pound Mulies.
