Re: VLD stopping power VS Accubond/TSX

For absolute terminal performance, I like the Barnes TSX and TTSX bullets. They don't have the higher BC of the A/B or the Berger VLD, but you will hardly notice the difference if 500 to 600 yds. is your max range.

The A/B seems to be a good compromise between accuracy, higher BC and terminal performance. I use this bullet in my 6.5-06. Great "all around" bullet.

For long range hunting (say 700 yds. and beyond), wind often becomes the critical component to deal with in making your shot. In those cases, I give the nod to the Berger VLD and the SMK's with the higher BC's. In my 243, I shoot the 105 gr. VLD. Performance in both accuracy and terminal performance departments has been superb.
