My answer to this is. The only reason is to make the 7 RM look good. There is no other reason.

The accubond gets my vote, although I am a bit biased as I haven't shot the TSX. Got lucky and and found a load that was impressive enough not to change. I use 140 AB in my STW and could not be happier. Longest whitetail to date w/ that round is 520 yds. Stuck on opposite shoulder and recovery weight was 112 grs. I am pushing them 3300 fps out of the STW.

By reading other posts, it doesn't sound like you will go wrong with either, hope I made your decision harder, LOL...

TSX are very accurate in my guns, as this 425 yard 3 shot group will attest

They terminal performance of the TSX is also excelent as the picture of thie Zebra heart will attest... 338 Federal 210 TSx

range it,check the wind, dial in correction, aim and only one shot

I just shot an average sized 5 point bull elk at just over 500 yards with a 140 nosler ab from my 7mm Rem. It ran 35 yards and dropped. The bullet penetrated the fron shoulder and blew up inside. I've liked the nosler ab's...

Shoot whatever you like they'll both perform well...I'm a big TSX guy so I'm partial and will say shoot TSX, but the Accubonds shoot really well too!
Good shooting jwp, TSX's do perform...

Thanks for all the replys. My dad has a 280 rem that really liked the TSX and not the accubond. I loaded the TSX for him and loaded the Accubonds in my 284. I figure that we can try both this year and see how we like the results of each. I might even load up a few of the TSX and try them as well since they hit exactly .5 inch below the accubonds @ 100 yards.
I just know enough about long range shooting to kno that I dont know sh*t about long range shooting!

Re: Which bullet would you use? Accubond or TSX

For me it's an easy choice TSX all the way. If I'm planning on eating what I shoot definatly the Barnes. They kill great but don't blood shock the meat. What is inside the wound channel is destroyed and what is outside of the 1-4" dia. Wound channel is good eating.
So far, all wound channels are directly proportional to the diameter and speed of the X bullet and the hardness of the animal.
