Favorite Bullet

In my 7-08 and 300WSM, I load the Hornady Accu Bond, deadly accurate and does great on deer and bears

I have 2 favorite bullets, neither of which I shoot anymore. First is a 7mm, 140 grain Sierra GameKing. I used to put one in my 7X57. Great in 7mm-08, maybe the most perfect deer killer in a good, handy rifle.

The other is the .308 Speer Grand Slam in 180 grains.

Dave Peltzal has a few different favorites. I'd go with what he says as a recommendation, but I haven't shot those, besides the Nosler Partition. The 140 gr Sierra is very accurate, stays together in my experience and doesn't cost a lot. It's all you need and more for any white tail.
The Grand Slam is probably out-classed by a Swift what-ever. (See Dave Peltzel) but a lot of people from Montana like it and the Nosler Partition in a 30-06 and 300 Win for elk. A lot of guys out there, the bread-and-butter hunters that actually hunt elk every year, they don't screw with new stuff when they know what works. They can't afford new rifles, powder and bullets all the time.

100gr SGK out of my .250 Savage. 50gr Sako Gamehead out of my 222. The latter is such a accurate load in my gun. I have been using it on whitetails for many many years.

16 years and counting. Welcome to the life of a Buffalo Bills fan!

Over the years, I have used all brands, except the premium mega buck bullets. Overall I buy Noslers now more than any other brand.

Favorite Bullet

I reload for multiple calibers, and hunt with multiple calibers. I have tried Barnes, Hornady and Nosler. I use Nosler Accubonds in my rifles and Hornady in my pistols. I have had poor results with the Barnes bullets so I gave up on them. My habit is to take out the front shoulder when I shoot and the Barnes have poor results when I place this type of shot.

I thought Nosler made the Accubond?

My favorite is the Barnes X, Triple Shock.

You are correct. Nosler Accubond and Hornady Interbond.

I'm a Nosler and Hornady man mostly. V-max bullets are probably some of my favorites from 17HMR through all my .22 cal rifles that I reload for.

My big game rifles generally get Nosler Ballistic Tips or Accubonds
