Anyone have Accubond LR results on game yet?

Has anyone killed any game animals with the new Accubond LR bullets? I am sure that there are many who would be interested in getting some real world feedback. If you do, include the cartridge, bullet weight, initial velocity, distance, game animal, shot placement and angle and results. Weight of any recovered bullets would be good too.

Thanks

Dan

Have a customer who is shooting 264 Win Mag with the 129 gr NABLR. He shot several deer at 385 to 520 yards and the bullets did not expand and penciled through. There was little blood trail one deer dropped in 15 feet the others were off to the races.

I've got the 150 LRAB shooting good in my 280 AI, but so does the 160 AB I'm kinda leery about the LRAB think I will stick to the 160 AB for an upcoming elk hunt !

I have been waiting to see some results on game from the Accubond LRs before I go hunting. Looks like I will be testing the 168 grain 7mm in a couple of weeks on some elk before I see any real results.
