Re: Long range performance of ballistic tip and accubond bullets
If I'm shooting a 7mag, (and I'll probably get gnawed upon for this) I would never choose a ballistic tip bullet for game animals. I've talked several guys into reducing bullet weight & going with 140gr corelokt, sgk, Nos Part. etc. and they've never been happier. If you're going for elk, you'll want a heavier bullet, but Whitetail aint that tough. The 140gr kills fast and with less damage. I've used both corelokts and sgk's, & every Whitetail I've shot.. just drops in their tracks. Might try ballistic tips for varmints one day, but I doubt it. What I'm using is working and working well.
