Excellent suggestion. I’ve done this myself and it’s a great way to get some extra trigger time without breaking the bank or needing to tweak your hunting load much.I would shoot accubonds in deer season and ballistic tips in the off season. Very similar construction so your practice will be close to your “game load”

I too have switched to the seating depth first strategy.What 1894C said.
I do load development and target shooting with BT’s when the hunting bullet will be AB’s. BT’s are just cheaper. There can be some minor, IMO, PoI shifts with the AB but a few rounds at the range will work out the difference for hunting application.
I have zero experience with the Sierra TGK / Game Changer but everything I’ve read and performance vids I’ve watched give me enough confidence to try it. I’m considering using it for load development in my 264 Win Mag and then comparing the Scirocco II velocity and PoI so I can determine which I like best.
I’ve recently switched my load development protocol to a seating depth first strategy. I dont think there will be a huge difference between these 2 bullets PoI. Flight ballistics and Sg are very similar. There may be some significant difference in terminal ballistics. I just dont know yet
