After terrible results on mule deer this last fall with the 140 Berger I decided to try a different slug. Picked up a box of the 150 IB's this week and am working up loads with a few powders right now.
Thanks for any help, Kirk
I only have experience with the 165 Grain 30 cal interbond on game. We took 3 elk with them from an 06. Out of 5 hits we had 3 pass thrus and the recoverd bullets were 137 and 154 grains with large mushrooms.
I would expect the 150 grain 277 cal interbonds to outpenetrate the 165s I used because the Sectional Density is so much higher with the 277 cal 150 grain
The 165 grain interbond from a Hornady factory load shot MOA on a calm days.
The interbonds should be as accurate as any other bonded core bullet on average but I was really impressed with their terminal performance.
