Bullet review
I shot a huge bull elk through both shoulders yesterday at about 150 yards. Half inch entry wound and 3 inch exit out the far shoulder, dropped him on his nose. These are the best bullets ever. This is the 15th big game animal I have taken with these in my 7Mag, similar results with all.

I shot about two boxes at the range and was very impressed with the accuracy. I took my 7MM Mag to WY for an antelope hunt. I shot my antelope at 273 yrds and hit him just behind the left shoulder and the bullet blew up, completely disintegrated. Left an 10" entry wound, no exit. It is garbage. I am taking this gun to Africa in April and will not be taking this InterBond junk.

Shot a bull elk at 185yds twice in the lungs bullet expanded way to quick going in looked like an exit hole no part of the bullet reached the other side of the ribs hit him in a good spot so didnt go far but is to soft for that size game.

Shot a herd bull moose - was with 8 cows - at 25 yds. Had to let pass me by as some of the cows were right in line on the far side, so shot entered behind the rt. shoulder and out in front of the left shoulder - at the shot bull did a 180 to the left and fell, never moved after down. bull wt. 1200# bullet not recovered - but results were great! 3 shots into .561" off the bench!

I used the Horady Interbond 150gr for the first time this season. Prior to hunting season, I was able to shoot 3/4 inch 100yrd groups at the range. During season, I took 2 deer with these loads. One at 165 yards and one at 80 yards. The bullet passed completely through in both cases leaving a 1-inch hole on the far side. On the deer that was shot at 165yrds, the bullet passed through both shoulders and the spine and still was able to exit. An excellent bullet with great accuracy and excellent terminal performance.

Killed a caibou at 388 yds, massive destruction. Great performance on deer. Shoots very accurate in my 7mm STW.

I think this bullet sucks.In my STW the 154 grain 7mm IB was hard to make shoot and when it did hit game the performance was lack luster at best.

I was hunting for Whitetail on 11-9-2006 in East TN. I handloaded the 130gr Interbond with a Federal case, 67 gr of RL-19 with a CCI 250 primer, COL 2.80. I had a nice 8 point that field dressed 155 lbs work his way down a ridge to about 75 yards. I hit in front of the left shoulder angling twords the back of the off side rib cage. The buck dropped at the shot and never moved. I recovered the bullet against the offside ribs. The entire chest cavity was destroyed, the bullet was almost inise out, but still intact in a nice mushroom. The recovered bullet weighed 94 grains, which is not bad considering the bullet impacted at around 3150 FPS. My only gripe about the bullet is the soft, fragile polymer tip gets deformed very easily in the magazine or when chambering.

Recently I was on a sheep hunt to fill my ewe tag. I had bought some factory Hornady ammo in 165gr Interbond for my Rem CDL .300 Win Mag. Out on the range the groups were about 3/4" MOA. Funny though, this same factory load and bullet weight will do about 1.25" to 1.50" in my Rem .300 Alaskan Wilderness Rifle which goes to show that each rifle can be a personality all it's own. I climbed up a steep drainage to a band of about 20 ewes/lambs and one half curl ram. It was a cross canyon sort of shot, not up or down and the range I guesstimated to be about 200, give or take. After nestling the gun into the crook of a short brush/tree I touched off the shot. The ewe faltered and then ran 10 or 15 yds before commencing her long roll down the steep drainage. The shot hit her square in the lungs, absolutely perfect. After I looked later the bullet hit the ribs then deflected up and exited on the top of the offside shoulder. I noticed that both ribs and the shoulder area had more bloodshot than I usually liked but nevertheless the bullet performed very well. Maybe it was a little too tough for light bodied sheep.

Used the Hornady Interbond 180 gr. in a 30/06 in July, 2005 to take a blue wildebeest, black wildebeest, kudu, springbok and white blesbok in South Africa. Excellent performance.
