I was hoping someone here could explain to me the difference between the Interbond and the SST Interlock bullets.

Thanks in advance.

Interbond has a bonded core, SST doesn't but has an interlocking ring inside like their Interlock bullet, except with the plastic tip to initiate expansion.

Thanks guys.  I can confirm after shooting on the range this morning that balistically they are essentially equivalent, at least out of my 30-06

Pyro -

I was referring to such things as group size, zero, etc.

yeah i knew what you were talking about, all i was saying it that once you hit two animals with the two bullets you will be able to see a difference real quick

I started shooting Horaday 150 Grain SST with H414 power. What I found out hunting this year the bullets would not expand upon impact. The bullets were passing right though. I shot one deer at 235 yards (used range finder) hit her and she went down. When I got there, there wasn't any blood what so every. couple of days later shot another deer 60 yards, good hit. Again no blood.
 
Anyone else had problems like this with these bullets?

let me ask you one smart assed question if i may, at what point did the bullet fail in the death of the deer you shot?? if they die on spot does there need to be blood all over the place?? its not like a deer that dies on spot runs away and you need blood to track, i will say that this would bother me though i like a blood trail to follow after a good lung/heart shot.so yes i can see why you are concerned though, switch bullets, try the nosler accubond or a sierra pro hunter

Im with pyro.  I used the SST in 150gr in my 308.  Shot 4 deer, recovered 4 deer. (2 head shots, 2 body shots).  Like allen said, not much by way of damage, but I didn't have to track any of them anywhere.  Unlike my barnes thread! Confused  I took pyro's advice and got the accubond because I wanted something closer to 168gr and the results are even better. Go with the accubond.  Or the ballistic tip if you want something out of a horror movie!

so you liked the performance of the accubond then??
i shot a doe in the spine with mine and of course it dropped like a ton of bricks, if my 300wsm and my .280 didnt shoot sierra prohunter so i might shoot them in those rifles as well, im not a fan of the ballistic tip, as long as you dont try to break a should your ok, rib shots i think you would be okay, but unless you wanna throw a lot of shoulder meat away dont shoot the shoulder.

I did.  I got about a .50" group of 3 at 100yds.  I don't own a micrometer, but that's what the Mk1 eyeball said it was.  Shot a little 6 point right behind the shoulder and it was all over save the skinning.  Had a friend give me a box of 168gr ballistic silvertips to try, and shot a doe at about 200 behind the shoulder.  wound up scrapping the front half.  I'll be sticking w/ the accubonds for now.  I also picked up some gamekings, but haven't shot them yet.

Accubond is a GREAT deer bullet!  I've shot enough deer and hogs with it in various calibers now that I'm confident in both its accuracy and terminal performance.  Nothing I've shot with it so far has taken more than a few steps before going down, though as with all bullets, shot placement is not quite everything, but almost.  All rifles I've tried AB's in have grouped as well or better with it than any other hunting bullet I've tried as long as I select an appropriate weight.  It wouldn't be my first choice for elk, but for everything below elk, I have total confidence in this bullet.

I with you guys on the accubonds and innerbonds, both are quite sturdy with good penetration and quick results. The nosler accubond gives me better accuracy however so it gets the nod. Actually they shoot like match bullets for accuracy, if there is a bullet to pull me away from paritions its accubonds. They will get tried on moose at some point I'm sure.

I shot a pretty large buck this season, he got real close and I was pretty high above him, when he was finally in an opening I shot him down right into the large part of the shoulder bone. Broke the shoulder, turned the near lung to jelly, through the diaphragm and thru the stomach angling towards the back. Went through about 25" or more of deer after breaking a pretty big bone knuckle. Last year into a shoulder broadside and both lungs into the far side shoulder. Both well over 200# northern deer. I would shoot a moose with no hesitation with the accubond. Plus its deadly accurate in my rifle, the paritions were always 1-1 1/2" while the accubonds are 1/2" or better.

nosler doesnt make a bullet that doesnt shoot, but i will agree with you that the bt and ab both outshoot the part, but i still think that the part would hold up better
