    Has anyone killed any game animals with the new Accubond LR bullets? I am sure that there are many who would be interested in getting some real world feedback. If you do, include the cartridge, bullet weight, initial velocity, distance, game animal, shot placement and angle and results. Weight of any recovered bullets would be good too.

    Thanks

    Have a customer who is shooting 264 Win Mag with the 129 gr NABLR. He shot several deer at 385 to 520 yards and the bullets did not expand and penciled through. There was little blood trail one deer dropped in 15 feet the others were off to the races.

    I've got the 150 LRAB shooting good in my 280 AI, but so does the 160 AB I'm kinda leery about the LRAB think I will stick to the 160 AB for an upcoming elk hunt !

    One deer died within 15 feet, but the others ran off, and ALL the bulles "penciled" through? Really? Proof? mtmuley

    I have been waiting to see some results on game from the Accubond LRs before I go hunting. Looks like I will be testing the 168 grain 7mm in a couple of weeks on some elk before I see any real results.

    I am interested in the LRAB, so I'm tagging along. Sorry for being a freeloader and contributing nothing.

    We shot a mature blacktail buck a week ago .using a 300 Norma using the 210 able it shoots it at 2900 fps. The buck was shot at 485 yard through the shoulders laying in its bed. The bull it was retrieved just on the fur on the other side. We retrieved 100 grains of bullet after the kill. We were very impressed with the emerge dispensed it never twitched . And we also have got our rifles to shoot more accurate than with another bullet.

    Looks like he would have concluded that if it "penciled through" at 385 yds. then it certainly would at 520, unless the 520 was first. I mean after a couple of animals I think I would have backed off and reconsidered.

    I was with my buddy when he shot an antelope doe in the hams @ 240 yards. He was using a Tikka 7 RM shooting the 168 ABLR. Bullet did lots of damage and exited. Performance was about equal to the buck I shot @330 yards using a 130gr AB from my .270 win.
