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!
One of the things I struggle with when afield is keeping my rifle clean and in good working order. Small amounts of dust and dirt collect moisture; moisture can freeze rendering your action immovable when you need it most. I have seen this happen on multiple occasions, and over time, I’ve learned the cause and how to prevent this from happening.
The first thing that you need to avoid before going afield is leaving excess oil on the gun. Oil will trap dirt and sand in all the wrong places....
