Switch to Accubonds

I had the same problem with my 7Rm and the same bullet. I was shooting the Winchester supreme ammo. It shoot .5 moa but I got tierd of the Blood shoot game. I found I was throwing atleast a front shoulder away with a perfect behind the shoulder shot. The combined technology bullet is bassically a coated Balistic tip.

I switched the 160 Accubonds and have been extremely pleased. I will have to say I finaly saw one fail last week on a deer though. Me and my brother stumbled on a nice 3 point at 50yrds with a 7RUM. IT was messy!

Hope this helps, But I have switched my brother and dad to Accubonds and out of 7 deer killed with them, They all but one have preformed perfectly!

By the way they shoot as good as the Balistic tips.

Fifty yards at 7RUM velocity? Probably performs like a varmint bullet at that range and velocity.

Wow, it sure is extreme for a 150 at 2,950. I mean, it has good weight for caliber & not an extreme velocity. I do know that a friend hunting with us in WY earlier this week shot a Antelope Buck in the near shoulder & it was extreme, but it did penetrate, this was a 270WSM & 130BST.
