Try any A/bombs yet?

A pard killed three moose and 2 elk in the last couple years with them.  Recovered bullets have been impressive will look for a pic

That rifle is a keeper, and the operator must be doing something right as well.

Of course when you decide on a bullet to hunt the BIG deer with you will have to shoot it again to see how they shoot.  And show us the results.

I want to try the accubonds but can't seem to find any. What are the partitions like.

Paritions are very accurate and perform consisantly.  I'd have to look it up, but if I remember right in our, "water jug tests" they retained around 80% of their weight.  Nice mushroom.  The only bullet we found that retained more weight percentage consitantly was hawks.
Partitions are not cheap, but a very good bullet, IMO.

Never tried the accubonds.
