Sierra Gameking vs. Nosler Accubond

I am working up a load for this years deer season in my Rem 700 270 wsm. I am loading Sierra 140 gr Gamekings with H4831 shooting at 3100fps. I have never used Nosler Accubonds and am wanting opinions on which would be better. Shooting whitetail and muleys out to 500 yrs.

Re: Sierra Gameking vs. Nosler Accubond

I have shot hundreds of WT deer. Used to do crop damage control. The Sierra bullets are just as good as any bullet and better than some for WT deer. If your Sierra is shooting accurately and you have already done the load work then why change? Actually the Sierra will work better at long range than the Accubond as for expansion. The Accubond is a bonded bullet with a little thicker rear part of the jacket than the ballistic tip. In performance it flies like a Ballistic Tip but acts like a Partition on impact. They cost over twice as much as the Sierras though. Just my two cents worth.

I've used Game King's on elk with great results. The lead tip deforms a little in the mag box during recoil but they still fly good.

Which ever group better at that range off your rifle, however, my personal preference is the NAB.

You might also want to consider the 165gr Matrix VLDs. Good luck!

Hope you mean lead tip Gamekings. I have used these with success on deer and coyotes but I like Hornaday sst's better. They fly flatter at longer range.

The hollowpoint Gamekings just pencil through.

I like the Nosler AB's for elk. They penetrate better. But then LT Gamekings have never failed to kill...it just took several shots.

Re: Sierra Gameking vs. Nosler Accubond

I personally load 140 Accubonds in my 270WSM, & hunt to 600+ for Deer, & Bear, & if conditions allow, Elk to 500-600 yds. But in all fairness I've never had any experience with Sierra bullets of any kind.
