I loaded up some 140g Accubonds with 69.5g of Retumbo and a 215 primer for deer hunting.

They came out about 3100fps and grouped well with a low ES. I am going hunting so I will know how they perform soon.

I heard the accubonds worked good in this caliber. Anyone else have any experiences with them?

Re: 270 wsm load data?

The 140 Accubond is one of the best bullets in the 270 WSM for general to mid range hunting, I've ran out about 800 or so of them with a few elk and deer kills as well. I've never had one stay in an animal, even elk they've blown through them leaving a trail of carnage in their wake. I did find one in the dirt behind a deer I smoke but that was the only one I've recovered.

Re: 270 wsm load data?



I shot this buck at about 90 yards with the load I listed above. After the first shot he was still standing and I moved a few yards toward him expecting him to go down any second. He started trotting off so I let him have it. Out of four rounds I let off total I had three in a group about 3.5" in the heart lung area. The entrance holes were about the size of nickel or slightly larger and the exit holes made a 2" group and were dime sized holes. The heart and lungs were liquified. My 4th shot was let off right when he was dropping and went over. He was dead about 30 yards from the first shot.

I am pleased with the accuracy and BC of the 140 Accubond but am not overly impressed by the expansion shown by them. I usually use a 130g Hornady Interbond and I believe the exit holes would have been much bigger.

This deer was dead at the first shot and wasn't going to go far but a bigger hole would have been nice. It had three exit holes in the lower chest area and there was not a large blood trail.

I shot a deer later with the Sierra 140g HPBT with the same load otherwise and I left a 4" hole on exit although it does not have a comparable BC.

I took a couple pics of the holes but they aren't that good. I will add them later.
