Re: Hornady .284" 154gr Interbond Experiences...

Thanks for the added detail and yes it does help. I also have the same weight in the SST, but figured that they might be a touch on the lighter side of construction for this velocity range. Now after reading what you have experienced and with the second shot being what I would more than likely take on a deer, well that pretty much summed it up. Granted these were only two accounts but sometimes it don't need to take a hundred cases to see a trend.

The deer where I would be using these run between 150-200# on the hoof, the last one I took was 178# before we dressed him out. I don't shoot many due to when they go down they had better be going on the wall. Landowners rule and I don't mind doing a LOT of looking before dropping the hammer. It don't cost anything to look.

Well I will give them both a good work out and see if there is any difference in the accuracy. Then which ever one wins out on that round I will give a work on on some hogs.

In my RUM I had to lower my powder charge by 2grs to keep the same accuracy and bring velocity at the same level. SD/ES were better with the IB.

I though the 2gr ajustment was cause by IB being harder then SST (higher pressure)? Not sure about this one but worked that way for this rifle.

I forgot to say on caribou #2, exit hole was 1 1/2'' to 2'' wide.

Let us know your results.
