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.
Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1
Nightforce is such a solid combo of reticle, available elevation, glass that is good enough to shoot at the longest range you can dial. Nightforce has bullet proof construction that can handle the incidental horse rolling or some other rodeo action. -- bigngreen
The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
