I use them for deer and I absolutely love 'em.  I've found them to be as accurate as ballistic tips, but hold together far better on big game due to the thicker jacket and bonded core.  I've been able to get them to shoot extremely well in several of my hunting rifles so far.

Provided your rifle likes them, I predict most definitely!

I tried the 180gr. Accubond's with a .300 Win mag and they were accurate out of my rifle.

I never shot any game with them though, so I can't comment on that aspect.

So far, I've shot about 5 deer and 10 feral hogs with Accubonds in various rifles, and I've had the same result each time:  dead animal with small entry hole & exit hole about 3X the size of the entry.  I've shot them out of my 7WSM, 7mm-08, .25-06, and .300 Win mag, and all have shot as well or better with the Accubond than with any other bullet I've tried.  I couldn't ask for more than that!

Nosler's are my preffered hunting bullets, both the NP and Accu. I could not be happier with the performance out of my rifles so far.

I just tried (target only) the Accubond for the first time a few weeks ago.  Accuracy was great in my 30-06, but to be truthful, I have had excellent success with Ballistic Tips.  I have kept records over the last 15 years.  To date I have taken 64 deer with the NBT, in various calibers but mostly 7mm in the 120 and 140gr, and .257 in 100gr.  I had exit wounds on all but 8 of those deer.  That is a pretty darn good success rate with a bullet that some consider too fragile.  For interesting reading on bullet effectiveness, read this link.  It was written by our chief deer biologist who conducted a several year study.  http://www.scilowcountry.org/cedar_knoll_deer_study.htm

i have used the ballistic tips and they make way bigger of a hole on the exit side than i like to see, course i went to nosler's web page and it said they dont recommend using the ballistic tip for hunting on calibers.308 and larger, which i used my .300 winm on mule deer and it wasnt pretty, i know they are very accurate though, i had some ballistic silvertips for my 25 wssm and my 300wsm and for some reason the factory round wouldnt group well enough for my liking so they just got wasted on paper, never shot an animal with either.

I have tried 180gr Accubonds out of my 300WSM and have had better results on game with the Partition.

I've had good success with Ballistic Tips on quite a few deer as well.  Dead is dead and the end result is what counts.  My only issue with the BTs is they tended to destroy more meat than I wanted.  The Accubond virtually duplicates if not improves on the BTs accuracy while not expanding as violently and stays together better.  Admittedly, this probably isn't all that critical on a small whitetail, but I think they work a little better on the feral hogs I frequently hunt.

i dont like it when a bullet hits ribs and blows a hole big enough to throw a football through it, i do agree with you that dead is dead, but i am out there for the food and if i can use a bullet to save some meat, three or four shoulders a year is a lot of wasted meat. if the accubond does stay together like you say then i think i will try them out.

i understand that the tsx performs very well what i am not impressed with is the price, really $30 for 50 bullets, no way, i dont care if they have 100% guarantee on the box, i can buy 2 boxes of factory ammo for that and i dont have to spend anytime at the bench, if they made there price more competitive i would be all over that, also im not so sure that they are the answer for white tail, the way these are built they look like they would go through a deer without any expansion, i want some expansion i dont want ballistic tip expansion but i dont want a .308 hole going in and a .308 hole going out either. and im not saying that the tsx is a bad bullet in any way shape or form, but im not sure they are right for my purposes, i might think about them for black bear but i'm not sold on them for white tail.

i guess if they only make a .50 caliber hole in a deer i could live with that,  i dont have any horses or atv's or guides i pay, but i only work 9-10 months a year not counting deer season, so money is tight at times, so i cant justify me spending 100 after sales tax on 150 bullets when i can buy 600 bullets for that same price, and im not arguing that one bullet is better than another, and i know that the price of copper is crazy right now, but i cant see spending that kind of money on just bullets, i could buy 300 bullets and 3 pounds of powder for $100. if i am feeling really rich some time i will spend the $100 and buy a box of 50 for all three of my favorite deer rifles and try them out.

i've been reading the bullet reviews on reloadersnest.com and so far they have had positive review on the accubond's i didnt see any negative feedback from anybody, so i think i will be three boxes for my three deer rifles and try them out.
