I just purchased some 180 grain Nosler Accubonds for a .300 WSM and would like to know if anyone else loads them and hunts with them. I have been using the Ballistic Tips and they group very well, but the fragmentation at close distance shots are too much. I am not worried about loading bullets that are cutting holes at 300 yards, just something that will ethically harvest the animals that I pursue from close range shots(75 yards) to long range shots(300 yards) with the least amount of ruined meat. The ballistic tips seem to no matter if it's a lung shot, heart shot, or front shoulder shot fragment into other parts and sometimes blood shot into the back straps. Do Nosler Accubonds stay together/mushroom or fragment upon contact with ribs/bone?
