Thanks!

Also, quarry is Sambar deer in Australia. Closest in size to elk, hence me posting here.


Neither, I'd pick Woodleigh's180 grain PPSP over both and for that matter over the Accubonds, locally they're a bit more than half the price of the Accubond.

Woodleigh quality at half price of accubonds? Wow, I"ve not shot Woodleigh but I"ve read enough that would be the route I"d go.

And practice...as 2 of us noted trajectory wise... I dunno if you can get bulk WW or RP bullets but that would be my go to practice bullet IMHO. Or PRVI may make the same too, bulk and cheaper. Maybe even Graf brand if you can get them.

30 cal 180 gr Woodleigh bullets today at midway are .78 cents each.
30cal 180 grain Nosler Accubond bullets today are .65 cents a bullet.

So Woodleighs are more then Accubonds as of today.

That may be the price in the USA but he is in Australia hunting Sambar.
The LGS in $US dollars has Accubonds for $1.11 each; Woodleighs at $0.64 each and Interlocks at $0.41 each
By all means practice with Interlocks but come time to hunt I'd be using Woodleighs
