Re: Recovered 208 A-Max... from LR Black Bear kill
I wouldn't be too hard on the performance of the 208 amax. I recovered a 180 gr NAB from an antelope I shot this year at about 400 yards. The accubond looks very similar to the picture of your Amax with the exception that the small amount of lead remaining was still attached to the jacket. The accubond appeared to blow up on the hide of the antelope making an 8 inch hole in the hide before penetrating to the off side where the bullet was recovered. The good thing was that it was an instant kill. The bad thing is that the bullet integrity isn't up to what I would expect from a premium bonded bullet.
