Partition for me too!
While we're on this subject what needs to happen and it probably never will,is for nosler to add a plastic tip of some type to protect the point of the partition bullet adjusting lead hardness accordingly add some more boat tail and you probably would never need another bullet of any kind which is exactly why they most likely won't do that. Okay imdone wishing good shooting to you all

The nice thing about the LR is some of the heavier offerings. Up to 175 in the 7mm. I like heavy bullets on big game.

The OP stated best bullet between 150 & 400 yds. While the AB & the partition shoot very well in my 6.5's I prefer the the copper mono regardless of brand. The reason is the almost non existent blood shot meat when using the mono. Any bullet with lead , even a partition while performing well in putting down game still splatters lead shards .While this shedding of lead is deadly it can cause considerable loss of meat because of being badly bood shot. We have all seen many pictures on this site of severely blood shot game. For me the meat is the main reason I hunt. In past years before the Barnes copper mono the Nosler Partition was absolutely my preferred bullet for elk but have been using the copper mono since 1994. Never had a failure or reason to switch back. There are times when an angled shot from the front or back can be the only shot presented or let the elk walk. Experienced hunters understand this. In my personal experience this is where the mono shines. Deep penetration thru retain bullet weight & absolute minual blood shoot meat. I realize many are primarily horn hunters & so this is not important . What ever bullet you like is up to the individual & not right or wrong

What is better for hunting elk between 150 and 400 yards, accubond 160 grain vs accubond long range 168 grain? Shooting 7mm rem mag, thanks again!
Do NOT complicate it unnecessarily. From your choices, the elk will NOT know the difference, esp. at 400 yards. Shot placement and the NUT behind the trigger remains the biggest factors.

ABLR shoots great out of my 7. AB shoot great out of my RUM. 175 ABLR and 200 AB. I haven't shot a ton of deer with the LR but I have yet to have one take a step. Average is 317 on deer. Elk with the 200 AB average is 316(cows and bulls). Like FEENIX said, the elk will not know the difference. Shot placement is more important as both bullets will easily make it in the vitals. Both guns and bullets go with me on hunts and I wouldn't second guess myself if I had to use one or the other.
