    None !

    The Accubond is one of the most dependable/consistant preforming bullets that I have found.

    I agree... will be using the 140 gr on my 270. On ther other hand, why is there so much negativity towards them?

    I have only used the AB's in one rifle. The 110 gr in my 25-06. I killed a whitetail deer last yr with it. Didn't get the expansion I thought that I would. Deer went 250 yards before dying. Talked to a well known guide last week. He feels that the AB's are too "hard" of lead in the core and don't expand like he thinks they should. He see's a lot more animals killed than I do so I respect his opinion.
    On the other hand my taxidermist was in Namibia 3 months ago. He used the 140 AB's in a 6.5 SAUM. He killed 31 animals with it. He told me they were all one shot kills at ranges of 300-600 yards... That included 4 Kudu, 4 Gemsbuck and 3 or 4 Wilderbeast's. So I guess it depends on who you talk to. Bruce
