using an accubond bullet are you better off aiming at the shoulder or behind it for a lung shot?

Have done both with good results. Which AccuBond and animal?

I’m a shoulder shooter. That bullet will strike like lightning and perform well, IMHO.

Either way will work fine. I only shoot accubonds and TTSX's and love them both.

I have shot deer and antelope with 140 gr 7mm Accubond.
I have shot deer and antelope with 140 gr 7mm ballistic tip.

Ballistic tip makes a bigger hole and makes them fall down faster.

I was under the impression that the .270 110 accubond was designed for the 6.8 Remington SPC that has a max velocity of around 2600 fps? I could be wrong on that but it might be worth looking into


Good bullets properly placed always work, but not everyone knows what good bullets are, or can reliably place them in the field

All the AccuBonds are rated "unlimited" for maximum impact velocity, and 1800 fps as a minimum velocity for expansion. (Well, except the AccuBond Long Range, which is still rated unlimited at the top end, but 1300 fps minimum.)

I had a Sako 270 that didn’t like 130’s, no matter what I tried. It shot 150’s really well. Did you try the 130 Barnes TTSX??

We have had very good results with the 90 gr. Accubond in 6mm Remington rifles and 110 in .25-06, so I would think it would work just as well in the .270.

Mule Deer, do Interbonds perform similar to Accubonds? I use the 129 Interbond 6.5 mm at 2750 fps velociry.

In my experience, Interbonds don't shed quite as much weight, but tend to open a bit wider. If I can get them to shoot in a particular rifle, I prefer them to Accubonds. I've not seen stellar accuracy from either. Both have worked very well on animals though. No complaints at all.

Don’t know about the 110’s but 140’ out of my .270 work well on deer and elk. Oh and coyotes. I’ve not been overly impressed with 90 grain on coyotes out of a .243. They have all gone further than expected and they are NOT fur friendly

I'm a shoulder puncher, and not me, but an old buddy has used the 200gr Accubond in his 300 Win Mag to slay everything all over the world short of the Big 5, I initially worked up the load in his rifle, COL 3.600" with 80gr Retumbo for 3000 fps, he now has learned, and bought his own loading setup, it's a hell of a load, near or far.

I've taken three elk and several mule deer with .30 caliber accubonds. My aiming point is always the mid section of the rib cage. I've never had to fire a second shot.

That's also my general experience with both--but have had better overall luck getting AccuBonds to shoot well.

Also, the wider expansion of Interbonds tends to results in more ending up under the hide on the far side--which is similar to other wide-expanding bondes bullets such as the Norma Oryx and Woodleigh Weldcore. AccuBonds usually result in a wider "mushroom" than Partitions, resulting in a little larger percentage of recovery--but not as high as Interbonds, Oryxes or Weldcores.

Might also comment that bonding does not mean a bullet is magically stronger. A lot depends on the thickness and structure of the jacket, as with any lead-cored bullet. Plus, the most common method of bonding is heating the bullet until the core melts slightly, essentially soldering itself to the jacket. This also tends to anneal the jacket, softening it somewhat as well.

Did you try H4831 and a CCI 200 primer behind those 130 AB's?

I have yet to see a .270 that won't shoot good groups with that combination.
