Which bullet would you use? Accubond or TSX

I have two loads that are shooting consistant 1/2 moa better groups for my 284 Win. One uses a 140 gr. Barnes TSX and the other a Nosler Accubond. Each has maintained 1/2 moa out to 400 yards ( as far as I can shoot at the range I have access to).

Which bullet would you use for whitetails ranging from 30 to 500+ yards?

What grain is the AB? Either will be a good choice I have them in 168 TSX and 180 AB for my 300 WM I also use the 140 AB in my 270 and will be used in my 270AM as a close range bullet(out to 500). Two great bullets that will serve you well.

Both are great whitetail bullets the AB might be a little less finiky but your shooting some good groups with both, Id say whichever you like the best!

They are both great hunting bullets. Go with the one that give YOU the most confidence. If that is a wash go with the cheaper one!

Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (where the shot goes, how big the group is, 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.

Cperkins,
Either one will do what you require of it at the ranges listed, if you can do your part. The TSX is a little tougher bullet than the AB. Weight retention is almost 100% for the TSX and probably 75-80% for the AB (not exactly sure). This info can be found on the Nosler site I would imagine.
I used the .25-06 100gr TSX on whitetail a few years ago and they are absolutely dead right there (DRT). I only recovered one bullet. Deer was 200yds running straight away for the woods. I recovered the bullet under the skin in his chest. I cleaned up the bullet and weighed in on my high precision lab balance and it weighed 99.805gr. Perfect mushroom.
Can't say what the AB would have done. I haven't tried them on deer yet. JohnnyK.
