here to praise the 2506 and 110 accubond

just this last week i got my mule deer in idaho it was just 3 point with 20" spread. rifle used was my 2506 ruger pushing h4350 and 110 accubonds at rought 31-3200.

at 200 plus the combo slammed the deer on a steep mtn slope the deer on impact flipped over backwords landed on tree 10yds belkow it.

it was quite the site to see it go from a broad side shot with it looking uphill to going over backwards and landing without a kick.

i had hoped to recover the accubond but as luck would have it had had enterd and exit through off side shouler blade. the wound channel was devestaing.; and on impact the bullet took some muscle and splaterd blood all over the snow.

upon feild dressing i found not a single bullet fragment just broken bone and mangled lungs pretty much everything was wiped out with the one shot.

this i think is the load im looking for last years 100gr nosler bt was effictive and also was a one shot kill but this years accubond was quite amazeing. at alittle longer range and bigger deer it exited while the 100gr bt didnt at closer range.

Thumbs up

Congrats Evan: I found the same results with my .280 in Africa. Kudu, Black Wildebeast, Gemsbok etc., all fell to the 160 grain Accubond. I only recovered two bullets and they were impressive with excellent expansion. I truly was surprised as was my PH. Good hunting, grayghost

Hello Evan,

Congrats! I also took a 3x3 this year at 357yds (lazed) with my 25-06 IMR 4350 with the 100gr Nos B/T One shot drop thru and thru. "ginsued" the heart and lungs, and took em out the exit hole.

Peace
Talon

didnt kill mtn dogs this last year but the year before i couldnt count them. they came to my cries like crazy.


ive also takn deer with the 100gr nos bt with similar results as the acubond only the blue tips seem to pretty much desingrate inside the deer. the acubond exited. i even used 165gr 308 bt in my 3006 and it came apart. killed the deer dead in tracks though.

i think when in doubt shoot the acubond.

i havent yet tried the 115 blue tip in my 2506. ive used it shootin rock chucks and realy like the bullet. it shoots very well on paper and bucks the wind.

lately ive been shooting 115 berger vlds out of my 2506. i should have been packn that load when i was deer hunting but i got weird itch and loaded 53gr triple shocks in the 220 and that bullet did the trick retaining 100 percent of its weight even at an impact velocity of about 3000fps.

tater

i never did make it to steal mtn, my wife is 8 months pregnant right now so i had to stay close to home. i only went out 4 times and got my little buck.

maybe next season we can hook up and head up to trinities or steal mtn.


Evan
