accubond point of impact

My son was stationed in colorado springs so I'm putting a long range kit together for him. He will be shooting a 30 hart witch pushes a 180gr ballistic tip at 3350fps. I want to send him 50 rounds loaded with accubonds for elk and bear and 50 ballistic tip for deer and antelope. My question to you fine folks is will the point of impact be the same from ballistic tip to accubond. Thanks

Re: accubond point of impact

why would you load 2 differenct bullets when your first choice will work for all 4 just fine? at that velocity a ballistic tip might blow up. each rifle is different so poi might change, i know that one of my rifles hated accubonds but loved ballistic tips and they were loaded exactly the same.

The answer is it could. I do not disagree with your 2 bullet choices, however, why bother? Just load the accubond and be done with it. He can use it for everything.

Re: accubond point of impact

Thanks for the reply. I never had an issue on deer size game with ballistic tips but was concerned the accubonds would not expand properly on lighter game. and I definately don't want to use ballistic tips on larger tougher game. Thought someone on here may have played around with them.

Re: accubond point of impact

btips are great. I've never had a problem with them either. The AB should perform just fine on all game.

Re: accubond point of impact

The acccubond will perform perfectly on deer and antelope. My 7mm STW shoots the 160 accubond sub 1/2 MOA so why bother with ballistic tips. At the velocity you mentioned I would be way more worried about the ballistic tips.

Accubonds drop them in their track.

Re: accubond point of impact

Just load the Accubond. I use it in my 264 Win mag 130 gr at 3350 fps on deer and even up as close as 50 yards it expands great but stays together and exits and kills them in their tracks. One thing that I found in my rifle is that they fly flatter than their numbers say they should. I sight in 3" high at 100 yards and at 300 yards I am still 2" high. The numbers say that I should be dead on at 300 yards. There is something to say about a fast moving great expanding bullet. The first deer I ever shot with the 264 mag and 130 AB was a buck at just shy of 300 yards in a green soy bean field. He was slightly quartering toward me. I put the cross hairs on the center of his right shoulder and squeezed the trigger and before the gun got to the top if it's slight recoil I heard the bullet POP. When the gun settled down from the recoil all I could see was an empty soy bean field. It took me an hour to find that deer in that green soy bean field. It dropped him in his tracks with his legs folded up under him and he never even kicked. The soy beans just covered him right up. Bullet entered the right shoulder and exited between the last two ribs with a quarter size hole.
