Tell me about them. The good, the bad, and the ugly. For elk and mule deer. Thanks
the good!! they work very very well always open and always penetrate
the bad!! they can be hard to find
the ugly!! they can be hard to find
Great bullet in 338. ESP for 338-06 and 338 RCM speeds.
The good.......exceptionally accurate, so much so that they were (still are) my bullet of choice when I started shooting F-class Open. I am using them again this season. Have yet to develop a load with the 210gr RDF I just received.
They penetrate like no other bullet, small hole in and 99% of the time they exit and leave a small exit hole just larger than cal size
The bad......they aren't sold everywhere or in the cal you need.
The ugly......none, I think they look sleek just sitting there
Good all around bullet, I have killed a few elk with them.
The bad-not the best BC and they won’t expand at low fps which really makes them a medium range bullet. I would have concerns with them at under 2200ish fps. One of the elk I shot was at 525 and the bullet passed through and had minimal expansion based on the wound channel.
Min expansion for me. They killed but I like to see the Energy stop inside or have a exit hole larger than the bullet
Easy to find an accurate load for and excellent terminal performance when fired from my 300RUM or 30 Nosler. For non-magnum cartridges I'd rather use a lighter Accubond.
It is always fun attempting to find bigger and better but the 200 AB for my 300s just seems to be hard to beat. Never have experienced bad or ugly. Good old boring confidence bullet.
I would agree with everything that has been said so far except for one thing. I experience massive exit wounds at all distances. I agree they are at there best in magnum calibers and very accurate bullet
i'd love to get my hands on some!
I shoot a .270win and can always find 150gr. Grice's gun shop up in Clearfield, PA usually has them, as does Midway and Brownell's. Don't know if the 200gr are harder to find. I've been happy with the Accubonds. So much so that when I found them I bought 10 boxes.
They were very accurate in my .300wm, but I could not get velocity I wanted. Went with 200 gr Nosler Partition - great velocity but gave up some accuracy.
I've used the 180 & 200 accubond in my 300wsm for many years for moose and elk, had great performance and only one blew up and still dropped the moose in his tracks !
