Each person has there own reason for using a particular bullet/type, so I recomend that everyone
at least try different bullets for there style of shooting.
The first thing that comes to mind is the BCs of the Accubond are not as high as some other bullets.
Also If it is pressed into the wrong service it may not perform as well as other bullets (To slow at
the point of impact)
I have three basic bullet types for my hunting (There is no "Golden Bullet" that will do everything
the best) First I use very tough bullets for tough skinned game at close range (Normally less than
300 yards) and/or with high impact velocities. These are normally the partitions or the A frame.
The next type of bullet are the bonded core or monolithic bullets that provide good consistant
performance from 200 yards to 1000 yards at medium impact velocities. (Like the Accubonds).
And the last type of bullet I use is for extended ranges,lower impact velocities that may be slow
for other bullets to expand and will have the best Ballistic Coefficient needed for long range accuracy
and expansion. (Ballistic tips, match kings,ETC).
So the right bullet for the job is the best choice and I feel that if the Accubond is used for normal
all round hunting it will be very consistant/dependable.
Just the way I choose my bullets.
