Can anyone fill me in on the main purpose of this bullet? I'm considering it in my .270 Win. Since it's an AccuBond, we have to assume that it's a hunting bullet (and not a varmint bullet), but the 110-grain weight in .277 diameter seems light for any species of big game, with its low sectional density of .205. Anyone here with experience with this bullet and/or can shed some light on this particular bullet?

That's interesting, 345kv. I wonder whether this bullet was developed more with an eye to the 6.8 SPC cartridge than to the more powerful .270s. According to QuickLoad, I could expect 3300 fps from the 22.5" barrel on my .270 Win. Will this light bullet hold up at shorter distances with the high impact velocity or come apart?

I believe the AccuBond of that weight will work on whitetail deer sized game with the extra speed. It has a tougher jacket than the Ballistic Tips. I would stay off heavy bone. You have a good point there on it being on the light side.

I don't know how they will work at higher speeds. But the box is labled 6.8 not 270 and they do have a cannelure for crimping.

Yeah, that's a good observation. The label might imply that they are intended for the lower velocities of the 6.8 SPC.

Ah, I just noticed the labeling on Midway just now, it says 6.8mm for the 110 grain, it could be made for the 6.8mm then. I saw that the 130 grain AccuBond box says .270

They were developed for the 6.8 SPC.
With the bonded core, you should have no problem on deer-sized game. I wouldn't be afraid to use it on deer.
The AB has proven to be a consistent performer for me over the past 20 years on a wide variety of big game (antelope to bison), and has also proven to be one of the easiest bullets to work up good loads in and provide great accuracy. I have used them in calibers .257 to .375.

I was actually going to work up a load for them for longer distance whitetails (400-500 yards) out of my 270 Wby.
I never did try it before selling the rifle. I was working up a load with the TTSX 110 gr bullet and was getting close to 3900 fps and 1" groups just under max load, out of a 28" barrel.

As already mentioned, the 110 gr AB was designed for the 6.8 SPC. It would certainly work in the 270 Win but the 130 gr AB would be a gem.

I have been trying to work up a load for this bullet to try on whitetails. Only found 1 box and have a load that will work. Not the best group but adequate. Hope to give it a tryout this year. This is in a Rem 700 22in barrel. Dan.
