Re: More 200 gr Accubond results

Brown Dog, The 165 ballistic tips leave a nice quarter size hole when shot through the ribcage as close as 50 yards. I try for a heart/lung shot, so I have not had the experience of hitting the shoulder or spine with my 300Win Mag. I havew hit a deer in the spine 10 years ago with a 30-06 and it blew a hole the size of my head in the deer. I thought I heard that Nosler changed the ballistic tip a couple of years after that incident, but I may be wrong.
If i'm lucky, I'll get to see what the Accubond does on a deer this week.

Both shoulders were pretty much trashed. There was a little left to salvage for burger, but the damage was fairly extensive.

I took another med-small doe yesterday. She was quartering toward me and I shot her just behind the shoulder at less than 50 yds. She took of so darn fast that I thought I'd missed her. Turns out the bullet went clean thru without hitting a bone, exit hole on off side about golf ball sized near back of rib cage. She went about 40 yds. before piling up.

Can you tell me the BC on the newly announced Nosler accubond. It is not on their web site yet. Thanks.

Re: More 200 gr Accubond results

Took 2 more does this evening, both between 200 and 250 yards. The bullet passed clean through the first (smaller) one. The second one was quartering towards me and I shot her through the shoulder and was able to retreive the bullet just under the skin on the off side. What started as a 200 gr. Accubond wound up as a perfecrt little mushroom that weighed 144.8 grs.

Ian M said in his post that Nosler had announced a 180 grain bullet. I assumed he was talking about a new 180 grain accubond bullet and would like to know the BC if this is correct.

Re: More 200 gr Accubond results

this is my blesbok that I shot in Namibia this past spring. I used a Rem700 LSS in .300 WinMag.



Here is the recovered AccuBond. The paper says red hartebeest, but it is from the blesbok.


The bullet entered the left rear leg just below the hip joint, then went through the guts, through the right lung and broke a rib stopping under the skin just behind the right front shoulder. Pretty tough bullets!

I'll be using them for deer on Monday 12/1.

Sorry but I have not received any data on the SD for the newest Nosler Accubonds yet, expect it will be very good as they are long bullets.
