Re: Thoughts on SST\'s(long)

I totally understand, Jeff. I used X's exclusively for many years and liked them a lot. But that was before I got into LR stuff. I just never got the required accuracy from them and wasn't sure they'd make quick kills way out there.

You can't lump all the plastic tipped bullets together anymore. I've been shooting the AccuBond extensively and it really does look like the best of both worlds. It will expand very quickly with minimal resistance and to a lot of damage. And the back half of the bullet has proven indestructable so far, so it will hold together and give good penetration (much like a Partition). I recently tested the 200 and 225 against the 225 Northfork and they all penetrated exactly the same (pics not developed yet [img]images/icons/frown.gif[/img] ). Add to that the accuracy and higher BC's, and well, that pretty well sums up my reasons for not using X's anymore.

I like good information. I'll give Accubonds a go when I get up to speed.
