I am going deer hunting this year and possibly Elk hunting (hopefully), and I would like to know if this bullet will be a good bullet to use for whitetails and Elk (I reload).
Thanks for any help.
Accubonds are good bullets. A buddy of mine uses them quite a bit in his .300 Win Mag, with the 200 grainer. Last year he took antelope and elk with them, this year he plans to use them on mountain goats as well. 160 grain 7mms have good sectional denisty and in the Accubond will work well for you on nearly anything.
I would agree with the others comments. Although I've not hunted yet with the 160's I just started loading them this year and I have them dialed in for my 7mm Rem Mag. Personally I chose to Moly coat them and have seen some beneficial changes in overall performance. Not everyone is a fan of Moly, but for me it's proven effective. Good bullet and not bad accuracy for a hunting load. Good luck!
Winter is tough on whitetails, that is an accepted fact.
You can help the quality of your herd by providing winter plots - that are not necessarily designed as kill plots.
Having what I call green plots - that the deer can browse in when most of the other food is gone, can greatly benefit the deer herd when they need it most.
Come December - at least in our area of the south - most of the mast is gone, all of the crops were long harvested and this green browse can really make the difference for...
