    When you are talking elk @ LR Nosler doesn't make a bullet in the necessary caliber that will compare with Berger's offering in that same caliber.

    I seem to remember a ballistics test on here showing the Nosler ABLR to have an inflated BC. And the Bergers were dead-on with what they advertise.

    I have had great luck with the regular Accubonds on deer in both .257 and 7mm calibers. I have also had excellent success with the 7mm Berger 168 VLD's on deer, too. I had not used them for hunting before this year, but they performed better than I had ever expected. I will be using them from now on, in my 7mm RemMag for inside of 500 yard whitetail hunting. For 500+ I have a 7mmSTW that pushes the Berger 180 Hybrids @ 3000 fps. That's some BAD medicine for anything in North America...
