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!
All of us, at one time or another have gone on a hunting trip and had what we call “Blue Bird” weather. Warm evenings and almost hot days. We hunt in our t-shirts and enjoy the sunshine. We are way up in the mountains and have a whole week to hunt. How could it get any better?
That is, until we score on that big buck or bull. We work to get it out of the field and skinned as quickly as possible to cool it down. But try as we might, we just can’t get...
