Re: Accubonds VS VLD's
Yes and no. First off you need to chrony that ammo with your rifle. Each rifle is unique, thus don't rely on published MV. Next off The accubonds are effective below the published 1800 fps. Those numbers are based off test that are not always accurate for field conditions. Expansion will occur below that velocity especially if you hit bone (shoulder blade, spine, etc...).
Even at only 2800 fps you can get a thousand yards out of an accubond. On a side note if you really want to get the most out of your ammo and rifle you NEED to handload. Quality handloads can really make a rifle.
