Bullet review
 
I used this bullet for several years for deer because it shot so well in my Rem 760. Last year I hit a medium sized mule deer in the upper humerus (deltoid process for you anatomists) at about 200 yds and it failed to penetrate into the chest to put him down. It took two more rounds to stop him. At that point I decided that I needed a heavier bullet so I went to the 180gr Accu-Bond. The last 3 deer I shot in the shoulders with the Accubond went DRT (down right there).

Dropped a 125 lb pronghorn buck @ 280yds with a 100gr bt in Black Hills Gold 3200fps factory load in New Mexico. Impact under rt shoulder broke upper front leg and destroyed both upper lungs. No exit wound. Surprisingly, goat moved 10-15 yds before folding and was still alive but down and fading fast when I got up to him. Finished the job with speer 87gr hand load @ close range. Lungs were jelly. Goat age est was 2-3 years old. Note: I am astounded with the stories of overgunned hunting for deer, antelope and varments. Why not use a bazooa??

Used the 70gr and 80gr 6mm BTs in my 240 Laser (6mm X 280 with shoulder moved forward .250 and changed to 40 degrees)with a 1-7 twist barrel. At 4,100 fps the 70gr BT would hold together, is very accurate and explosive on a yote out to 500, just leaving parts closer in. The gun was built to shoot ground squirrels with and is a red mister of the first order.

345, 220, 195 yards full penetration of elk, and at 6' full-very full- penetration of black bear, 15 deer that I never had to track. Coyotes go backwards in time, and accuracy is better than 1 moa in my 270 and 300 win mag. 165gr in 308, 140 in 270. You can keep the all copper drill bits. This is the serious bullet.

I have been using 100 gr. BT for years in a Ruger 77 and a Rem. 700 on Pronghorns and Whitetails. I have never had any kind of bullet failure at any distance. On a recent Pronghorn hunt, it accounted for 2 bucks, both with destroyed lungs and good sized exit wounds.

I currently shoot 165g Nosler ballistic tips in my 300 win mag. I use that load for deer and never chased a deer, they ALL drop dead in there tracks even with an accidental gut shot! Ive killed 6 deer with this load 10-150 yards. My load- win virgin brass, 72g 4831, 165 nosler ballistic tip bullets 3200fps = 0.5 inch groups.

Ruger MK II VT in 308, 165 grain ballistic tip, shooting 4 inches or less @ 350 yards. 7mm WSM 140 grain one shot kill whitetail doe 35 yards, massive lung damage and bleeding. Excellent accuracy for me and a dependeable killer on deer and smaller if not shooting into bone (shoulder). Very deadly in my 22-250 AI explosive results on varmints.

I wrote a review where I was not overly keen on the green tipped 30 cal. for my 30-06. I have since gone back to BT for deer with my 7MM Mag. - much cheaper,just as accurate in my gun and a lot less walking after dead deer that want to run until they run out of blood (when shot with TSX). I would still recommend TSX for Moose and Elk where your looking for deep penetration but for deer this is my "go-to-bullet".

I really want to like this bullet and it is VERY accurate and cheap, but it is very inconsistent on game. I have had zero expansion with 150 grain .30 bullets on whitetails. I have also had explosive expansion on the same game with same shot placement and same bullet. I have used 180 grain .30 bullets that are supposed to be rated for Elk on a 200lb hog and it did not give me a pass through on a broad side shot. I know there are a lot of people out there that swear by this bullet, but Iím convinced that it is just a matter of time before they have a bad experience with them.
