Re: Good bullets?

Peraonaly, I would not use the 178 AMAX on elk. Most here wont either. The 180 ACCUBOND is a very good accurate well constructed option.
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.

Re: Good bullets?

I like the 180gr. ballistic tip, and the 180 and 200gr. accubond. never tried the amax but love them out of an 7mmstw.
I dont know who ever came up with the imaganary word of "Over Gunned"

I also use the 190SMK and 178 A-Max. The 208 A-Max in on the "try it" list this spring.

i used the 200gr AB's out of my 300wm on game for the first time this past fall with excellent results. one 200lb+ mulie took a high boiler room hit that passed clean through him at 470yds. minimal meat damage. another (a whitetail buck maybe 190lb..ish) took a hit straight on (facing me) at under 100yds that failed to exit...entered heart high and traveled 3/4 the length of his body coming to rest at the hip socket. bullet weighed 154gr when recovered. i was really surprised at the amount of meat that wasnt damaged with this shot.

i have been getting the best results as far as accuracy in the 2900 realm...i can post the load data if you would like.

accuracy has been excellent. a few three shot strings from the bench at 100yds have been darn near one holers [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]. also, accuracy out to 500yds has maintained moa...if i do my part [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]....and the wind DOSNT do its part [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]

Re: Good bullets? 200 AB Loads

Could you post your load data for the 200AB or send me a PM with the load data included? I'll be trying this bullet in my 300WM soon. Thanks.
