I’ve shot a couple hundred deer with Nosler BTs, using the 130 gr version in the 270 and the 120 gr version in the 260. It’s a devastating bullet, and it is messy. I just shoot them in the lungs and avoid the best edible parts. They always die. No exception. The way I see it, after all those deer and many many hogs, there is just no reason to switch to Accubonds or anything else. As for folks wanting high BC bullets for deer, inside 400 yards a higher ballistic coefficient gains you nothing. But if that’s your excuse for shooting a long skinny match bullet at deer, well, it is your decision.

If I were to quit using Ballistic Tips, I’d switch to Sierra Gamekings. My bullet choice for the 223 is the 65 gr Gameking, and I have been amazed at how that little bullet puts down the pigs. If Sierra offered a 120 gr Boattail Gameking for my 260, I’d buy some and try them out.
