    Im looking for feedback from anybody with experience with this combo as far as expansion and penetration. I just picked up a cooper 54 excalibur and am looking for an all around bullet for deer/black bear for here in PA. Shots on bear are typically with 100 yards bit some farms we hunt for deer can stretch out to 300-400 yards.

    First time out to the range the other day with this rifle it shot 120 grain sierra sp and h4350 at about 1/2 moa even during break in which is great and im sure the sierra is a great deer bullet but maybe a little soft for bear and is the reason why im looking at the accubond.

    Place either the 130 AB or 127 LRX on top of an appropriate charge of H4350 or Varget and not a bear or buck in PA will stand long.

    I used the 127 LRX on a Montana mulie @ 500 yds last October and a large cow elk in January from 450 yds; this from my little 6.5x47 Lapua.
