I recently opened a box of 338 225 grain AccuBond bullets and was shocked to see half of the points broken/corroded off of the bullets. I contacted customer service and talked to Mike and he is sending me a new box. Thumbs up with Nosler Customer Service. He told me my box was about 15 years old. I have other boxes that are just as old in 6mm, 277, 7mm & 308 without this issue. I was curious if anyone else has had this issue with the Accubonds. It appears that perhaps the bonding agent eats away the tip material and starts to corrode the bullet over a period of years, or it could be what the bullets are cleaned with. I have three questions: 1. Anybody else experience this issue? 2. Can I hunt with these "Hollowbonds" and expect them to expand? 3. Is this an old issue already remedied or is it something we can expect over time with all the AccuBond bullets?
