I have reloaded for sometime now and had great results. I was wondering if anyone has messed with the new boned ballistic tip bullets. I bought a box of the Hornady Interbond bullets in 154 grain and a box of 140g Accubonds for my 7mmers. I have worked up some loads for my 280 Rem and they shot as good as the Nosler ballistic tip bullets. My question is how well do they work, at close range and long range. I had a great load for my 7mm Mag with a 150g Nosler Ballistic tip but when I had a shot at 60 yards the bullet didnt perform well at all. I shot the deer just behind the front shoulder and it didnt stop the deer. After 2 hours of tracking I found it and it was still alive. While gutting the deer it was apparent that the bullet never went all the way through and had exploded and made a mess on the inside. That was the last time I used a Ballistic tip on whitetail and now only use them on varmints. I was wondering if these new bullets held up better and preformed like the advertisements claim they will. They are very accurate and flat shooting but I need them to work at shorter ranges. I have the potential to take 200yard shots but also shot ones. Any advise or info would be great.
