Yeah, but when you get close to 1000yds I don't believe the accubond will have enough velocity to reliably open up. Therefore somehing like a balistic tip will work well.

Drop the Accubomb on them!!! Seen and heard of to many bad things with the 30 cal Bergers to shoot deer close with them.

For all around-all purpose, accubond or sciroccoII. For any situation

I have had great luck with the accubond bullet in my 300RUM! One thing to do, to avoid a messy piece of meat, is make some messy brains. If you can consistantly hit a deer at 1000 yards, then a 2 inch brain at 100 -200 yards should be no problem.

Go with a 210 VLD, 208 A-max or 190 VLD. 400 out shoot shoulder, closer shoot neck. Done deal. Even if it grenades, 3" penetration will kill the deer swiftly with a neck shot, and any of these bullets will have at least pieces penetrating deeper than that. If you plan on throwing in bigger game, the 200gr accubonds has a reputation of dropping large game with good penetration. However you don't here of as many bang-flops with an AB as you do with a Berger or A-max. Pick your poison, any of the above mentioned bullets will really put the hurt on a deer!

Shot placement is key. Never had a deer stand for a minute. Even @ 1058yrds.

My buddy killed a large MD buck at 1180 this year with the 200ab out of the 300rum, Bullet expanded well and fully penatrated. He even packed out the heart with a golf ball sized hole thru it so I could see how well it expanded.
