I've done some tests with Accu-bonds this summer and wasn't overly impressed with them. Scirocco, I found, have better weight retention. Swift A-Frame, oddly enough, has probably the best weight retention among most hunting bullets.
I shoot a Browning ABolt II composite stainless stalker topped with a Bushnell Elite 4200 2.5 x 10 x 40 mm on Weaver see - through mounts with Williams open sights chambered in 7mm Rem. Mag.

I switched from Winchester Supreme Nosler Ballistic Silvertip 150 gr (which also shoot great) At 394 yards, on my particular rifle, I still get 1.625" groups, in which I think is capable of dropping any big game. Although I must tell you, it's not just the rifle but the shooter. I shoot my rifle quite regularly and have built confidence in the rifle and quite comfortable with it.

I've met lots of guys who've been in this same situation. They figure, "heck, how hard can it be?" But, I assure you, if you don't learn to get along with your mount for the week, it's going to be a bumpy, scary, noisy, and life threatening experience.
First, let's start with the horse itself. A horse trained under western style has 4 gears. The walk, trot,...
