The ABLR is a very soft bullet. Long range is the only place you can use them. Real long range. I cannot understand why no one can make a one size fits all. Federal with the TLR does it but nosler seems challenged. Maybe so they can sell more bullets. If I were you I would order a box of the federal edge TLR and see if your gun likes them. Solid shanked bonded. The only experience I have with the ABLR is the 150 in a 7. Standard 280 at 3000. A little whitetail spike at 200 yards. Rib shot and did not get to the ribs on the far side. REALLY? I will never use another. I assumed that in the little 7,s such as an 08 or a 280 it would be good. I was very disappointed. Even the standard accubond is too soft as far as I am concerned. If you insist on using nosler use the 160 partition. That my friend is a real killer.
