I assigned someone to answer this while I was at shows..
The 35 Whelen BT is still in distribution and will be replaced by AccuBond sometime this fall.
It will be the same bullet in terms of loading.
The difference in bullet contruction can be viewed on the nosler.com website
Expansion velocities can be viewed on our FAQ section

Your gun is the only one that can tell...
The .338-180 grain Ballistic Tip is no longer in production as is the .338-200grain Ballistic Tip. However, the .338-200grain Ballistic Silvertip is still being produced.
The AccuBond will take the place of both in our line.
Please realize the 6.5mm AB is NOT set in stone. The AB just allows us to make some heavier bullets that we normally wouldn't be able to make with the BT.
It is all open for discussion
Thanks for the input
Sorry for the delay.
I would shoot the PT on this one. IF I HAD TO CHOOSE!!!
While I have killed a ton of game with the 25 AB, and a well placed shot would do the job, the PT would have a bit more if a bone got in the way.
THAT IS A TOUGH CALL!!!! No more ones like that.
