Re: BallTip or Accubond
I have had an STW since 1994. Shot quite a few whitetail, muledeer and antelope with the 120 Nosler Ballistic Tip. Countless coyotes have also fallen to this combo. About 5 years ago I tried the 120 grain Barnes TTSX with 82.0 grains of IMR4831 and Federal 215 primers. Overall cartridge length 3.60''
This load is super accurate and offers better penetration when the animal does not offer perfect broadside shot. My son shot a bull moose with this gun and the 140 TTSX, 150 yard shot broadside behind the shoulder , complete pass through and the bull trotts away 20 yards or so and tips over. I captured it on video. Anyways my 2 cents. Awesome cartridge!
