to me there a deer bullet and a deer bullet only. i find on the tuffer bigger animals they dont hold together. i use the supreme accu bonds for moose and bear...havent let me down yet....hear alot of guys complaining the ballistic tips not holding together on the heavier game....good luck!!
I personally wonder about the polymer tips my self, ive noticed after coming out of the woods that the tip seems to be slightly turned up from loading out of the magazine and it made me start to wonder if that bullet would create a tumble effect, I havent had the opportunity to really test it out, but it is something i would like to figure out
I shot a couple boxes of these last year and could not get a decent group ( 300 win mag). I don't reload so I spent a lot of time looking for out of the box ammo that would group well at max range (300 plus yards) and found that the Federal Vital Shock ammo performed consistently better then anything else I shot. Bullet was the 180 Accubonds in 300 Win Mag. I found that with my rifle I was able to get regular 4 inch groups at 350 yards every time I went out to practice. With the Winchester Supremes I would be lucky to get 3 inch at 100 yards. I don't use a real bench or anything, just a work table and some sand bags The rifle has a 26"McGowen barrel and is very accurate for a hunting rifle. I'm not sure what caliber your shooting but I would probably not recommend this ammo to a friend.
Also, the Accubonds are the hammer on Elk sized game. I killed a spike at 150 yards last fall and he dropped where he stood. I could not believe how hard he went down.
I never did find the bullet however, not even fragments.
First of all, if you haven't gone winter backpacking, it needs to happen in the near future. It puts a very unique twist on the summer version of the activity. Yes, it's cold but it's nothing that being prepared can't remedy. Beyond it's therapeutic and recreational value, I think it is a very good tool for the big game hunter as well. I don't think that you can spend too much time getting to know the ins and outs of the area that you hunt. And there is no better way to gain experience in...
