Re: Minimum Impact Velocities for Partitions and Accubonds
The 165 partition at 1600 to 1800fps would expand just fine. Remember that the front end is built the same as any conventional bullet so will expand at moderate impact speeds.
I wouldn't use the Accubond simply because at those launching speeds, its tough contruction is just not warranted. Unless you are planing on impact speeds approaching 2800fps or shooting very large game from any angle at closer ranges, that really is "too much" bullet.
I would recommend the SST, BT, MK, or any other conventional hunting bullet. In mid weights for a cal, these types of bullets launched at 2700fps or slower, have had complete success on game for almost 100years.
