Re: Sierra Gameking vs. Nosler Accubond

I've killed with both and it doesn't really matter which you let fly. They'll both hold about 60% of their weight and they'll both go through most anything you wack with 'em. Shoot what your pipe likes with these two and don't worry. My longest kill is with a 140 grain 7mm sierra fb at 700 yards + offhand on a mule deer, so I am a bit partial to the little green box.

Re: Sierra Gameking vs. Nosler Accubond

I use the 140ghpbt Sierra and they work great but if loaded to higher velocity and used at close range they may fragment after penetrating which is ok. At the speed you are using them at they would be fine.

The 140g Accubonds I used made pencil holes and weren't worth using. I made a 3 shot group in the ribcage of a whitetail buck and the exit holes were not much bigger than the entrance.

I like the 140g Interbond, they are more likely to expand than the accubond and stay in one piece pretty good.

Re: Sierra Gameking vs. Nosler Accubond

We haven't had any trouble with the sierra's breaking up on deer, but the shots aren't usually close and we don't try to find bone. I did put one seirra 7mm 140 grain pro-hunter through a deer's hip socket running at 300yards(forward raking shot) shot from a 7mag at 3200 fps launch velocity though. It held 60% but was rather mangled.

I shot a deer head on with a 140hpbt at 3250fps, about 50 yards. There were shards of jacket in the tenderlions.

Re: Sierra Gameking vs. Nosler Accubond

logan,

looking forward to comparing notes later in the season....

I am loading 140 gr accubonds over H4831sc at 3,120 fps (270 win).

last year was shooting 130 gr accubonds at 3,200 fps and all 5 whiteils shot between 350 and 485 yards dropped in their tracks, as did two hogs at closer ranges. coyotes shot at closer distance ran some....

no experience loading other bullets except Barnes XXX, which did "pencil through" at mid to long range...
