    FYI......Lot of people I think may have not seen that the Nosler Ballistic Tip is not bonded and fully tapered jacket which results in a " ballistic like" explosion at all velocitys......hence when hitting any bone.....she explodes and makes quite the frag pattern and mess.

    Main reason I went all Accubond, all the time.

    Only reason I used then is a friend gave me 500 of them and they grouped pretty well, so I used them for antelope. I gave them away to another "friend". LOL Stick with the ones I've been using for 3o years...Sierra Game Kings!

    Yep...identical story here....I won some in a raffle......ruined a lope one year......gave them away. Its tough to beat the Sierra Game Kings and the price is also good. My Rem 700s just seem to like the Accubonds a little better is all.

    There is not a better 25 caliber bullet than the 117 Sierra Game King. I've shot dozens of deer with it from my Bob at 3100 fps.

    We (wife and I), have used Barnes mono bullets.....since the early 1990’s, though in different cartridge/caliber than yours. We selected one bullet weight, and have used it on all big game, from deer/antelope, up thru and including moose. The “only” changes we made were, as Barnes improved their technology.....we updated as well. To clarify that a bit, I dropped down a bullet weight as Barnes “did not” offer a TTSX in my preferred bullet weight! Almost all were ?one shot kills?, except when placement was bad, and recovered only one bullet. It was the original Barnes X, which had full-lenghted? (end to end) a rag-horn bull elk.....recovered under hide before leaving the elk. One petal was broken off! This was our first kill with a Barnes X, around 1992.....Barnes only since then! They have been used on game from less than 30 yards to over 400 yards, with zero bullet failures....a pretty good testimony for any bullet! memtb

    I shoot the Barnes 100gr TS and TTS out of my 257 Roberts Ruger #1. I'm getting 3,200 fps from its 26 inch barrel. I shot a lot of deer and antelope and even a CA big horn here in WA. they work very well. I probably won't go back to 117 and 120 gr bullets out of that rifle.

    I generally just shoot factory 130 or 150 gr coreloct out of my .270.

    couldn't tell you a thing about the ballistics and couldn't care less. ain't never had an animal hit by a bullet travelling 2000fps tell me it would have preferred 2500fps.

    put the bullet where it needs to go and it will kill any animal on this planet.

    if you can't do this ,don't take the shot.
