2950fps and under a 100 yards is what I'm doing.

Dang, what is you load? I push the 139gr SST and Ballistic Tips at 2,800 fps. Varget will give me a little more but not that much, and it didn't group well. Maybe RL17?

At those speeds then the Accubond will be best and with a shoulder shot.

For what it’s worth I used to run 140 ballistic tips out of my 7mm mag @ 3125 FPS to hunt axis deer for years until I went with my 300 RUM. I always aimed for the front shoulder and never had a problem. Of course a bonded bullet will to hold together better but my opinion is most folks over think it. Load some up and send it.

I plan to use my 7mm-08 with either Nosler 140gr Ballistic Tips or Accubonds over 49gr of RL19--with muzzle velocity of average 2840fps. Range will be only 25 to 100 yards.
I'm a little concerned about Ballistic Tips fragmenting at the high velocity of close shots,what's your experience and thoughts?
Keep fps down so bullet will perform at that distanice. RL19 will do
