I have have made no attempt to hide my dislike for non controlled expansion bullets up close, but at 700yds and beyond you really don't have a choice.
You sure as hell do not want to shoot a Barnes or Accubond out of their respective expansion range or you can be guaranteed a pin hole.
As suggested by Jeff, broadside shot selection basically assures instant death even if the bullets goes off like a bomb...It just doesn't have to penetrate far at all.
For this thinking I am a 100% buyer.
The new Accubond promises to expand down to 1300fps...so there is hope yet for us controlled expansion types!
Also Kirby Allen did some long range experiments with the 265TTSX out of his 338AX. IIRC he said the BC was significantly higher than quoted at the elevated 338 Lapua improved velocities.
Anybody remember anything about that?
I have 20 boxes of those things...
