I chose the Accubond. I’ve used it in 300WM and 270 WSM on caribou with great results. I have only been reloading for a short time, but I am hoping I can get the same accuracy with my hand loads as I did with factory, or even better for that matter. On game, I’ve never had an animal hit with an Accubond take another step after being shot. I have also carried my .300 WM for bear, both grizzly and black.

Never had a failure with 130gr Nosler BT
I'd be curious to know what game you've tried them on, because I have no experience with the 130gr BTs and very little with the 150gr BTs. I just know what I've heard about them coming apart easily. Always interested to hear first hand knowledge of a specific bullet's performance on game though.

170 Berger has been a hammer for me.. I like any bullet with the 270 but can't complain about the deer and elk I have laid down with a 170 elite hunter.. Although you do need a faster twist barrel.. Hammers are great you can shoot them with your current twist.. Pick something and get sending it down range.

Right now I'm limited by the supply various shops in my area possess, which has thankfully left me with a couple hundred Sierra 115gr Matchkings for killing rocks for practice this spring and a handful of Berger 140s. I also have 50 Cutting Edge 120gr MTHs for putting big game down starting in August if I can't get anything else. I'll likely place an order for the 116gr AHs from Hammer just because I really like how easy they've been for me to get top shelf performance out of in the past with all rifles I've tried them in.
If I had a faster twist 270, I'd definitely be interested in trying that big 170gr EH out on game and some longer rock shots in the hills this summer.

Northern whitetail out to about 350yds and as close as 25yds, a couple bear out to about 200yds, 225lbs or less. Several coyotes but about any center fire works for them if hit right. All my shots are within the vitals I don't go for the head,neck shots. Always have a good short blood trail.
