Re: don't know what to think.
Earlier I suggested using the Accubond or the Ballistic tip. I had a good reason for doing so.
With your problem, It tells me that It is a bullet failure because the right bullet for the game the animal, and the distance
was not ideal.
"There Is No Golden Bullet" that will do everything perfect under all conditions and distance.
I shoot many different bullets in a wide range of calibers because what works well in one doesn't
in another and in many cases performance in all categories dictates a certain bullet that exhibits
a tendency to do everything well at the distance I intend to use it.
In Some rifles I have had to go with two different bullets because of there performance at different
distance. Example; I have a 7STW with a very long barrel that can push a 140 grain bullet to 3700
ft/sec with great accuracy . The problem is that under 400 yards I have to use bonded bullets or the old tried and true
partition to keep them from cutting a dear in half. But at distance over 7 or 800 yards they just punch a hole through
the deer and they run off so I use the ballistic tip and they perform very well because the velocity is down to there best performance level.
In smaller calibers bullet selection is very important and requires experimenting.
The bigger calibers are not as finicky and shot placement is more important.
I recommend that you try every brand, type and weight that should perform on the game at the
distance you intend to use them and then you will find out what a good round the 2506 is.
