For that specific quarry or any other for that matter I'd go with the Accubond, or even the HPSP Interlock. Either bullet will perform well farther than the 600 yds you mentioned.
I've shot some XBTs but for reasons I can't remember I went back to the Accubonds.

Just my 2 cents.
I may be the slowest guy on the mountain . . . . but . . . . I'm on the mountain!

I would say the ACCUBOND because I have yet to get the MRX bullets to shoot decent or hear of any one getting good accuracy, not even decent. ACCUBONDS will kill just as dead and actually hit what youre aiming at.

Just my 0.02
Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (how bad your last shot was, how big the group is going to be, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.

i'm with Meichele, i've never heard anyone talk favorable about the mrx bullets. on the other hand i don't think i've ever heard anyone say anything bad about the accubonds. blacktails are pretty small. a ballistic tip would probably work well.

My vote goes for the accubond.- <usually very accurate, and great terminal ballistics in general.-

I have no experience with the MRX bullets,but the TSX or very accurate every bit as accurate as the AccuBond or the SMKs in my experience with them........
range it,check the wind, dial in correction, aim and only one shot
