Re: Which Nosler bullet?

Nosler Partitions have never let me down but to be truthful I have yet to use there Accubonds the partitions work to perfection

I have used Partitions in 338,308,284 and 257 from pronghorn to brown bear they the std I judge others by

Re: Which Nosler bullet?

totally depends upon the game, range, and cartridge. Partitions are made to open quick and shed weight fast (seriously lack the penetration of the Accubond)

Shooting partition for black bear in a 243 at close range isn't going to be good. Shooting a Partion in a 308 for elk/moose/grizzly isn't going to be good as a cor-lok at any range..

Re: Which Nosler bullet?

Yep, 60% gave up the meds here in the home. And of any given weight bullet (the solid part of the partition) will NEVER penetrate like a 100% of a non-partition bullet.

Friend shot a big Canadian Black bear at 80 yards three times with a 180 partition from his 300 weatherby. He was furious as the bear didn't fall down and he lost the hide to bugs by the recovery time. He couldn't believe that the partitions had not penetrated. But the bullet did exactly what it was meant to do. I got him to the Nosler site and he then understood. the partition wasn't bad, just his bad choice of the wrong bullet for the job.

Re: Which Nosler bullet?

Depends on where the 3 shots hit doesn't it? 3 to the rump and it doesn't matter what bullet construction you have, it's not going to be effective. right?

Re: Which Nosler bullet?

No bad choices here. I've used Accubonds and partitions on deer with instant stops. I'm loading 180 gr partitions (.30-06) for an upcoming bear hunt in Canada, but I'm sure 180 gr Accubonds would do just as well.

Pick whichever one you like or your rifle likes.

Re: Which Nosler bullet?

I voted for the Accubonds because I use them more often. Havving said that they are designed to perform like a Partition. What I like about them is they are more aerodynamic. Either one will definately outperform a corlokt!
