    The only thing that I think makes a difference from the regular Nosler Accubond would be the moly coating……..which I’m not really a fan of, I just see that as a cheezy way to squeeze more velocity out of the same or very similar bullet……….Still got the lead core to separate and stuff………now if they made a ballistic tip with the attributes of the partition………..that would make me go Hmmmmmmmm [/quote:3f71lxbi]

    The AccuBond is supposed to be the best of both the BT and Partition, I thought. Anyway the coating on the WIN stuff isnt really moly, whatever it is its a step up from Moly. Atleast the ones I played with, in a Shilen there was no residue or copper just good old carbon fouling. [=}=][/quote:3f71lxbi]

    Actually, the Accubond is just where they bonded the lead and copper when making the bullet, the Partition has the chamber in the base of the bullet to help keep the weight retention after the hit.

    Sorry, I use the term Moly Coating pretty generically……….I consider any coating on a bullet a moly coating for lack of better terms…….I know, pretty generalized………. :oops:

    And Matt, what kind of bullet were you shooting out of the .223? I’ve shot deer with a .223 using regular soft points which worked fine and less blood shot than with my .06 :-B

    I was shooting 55 gr. FMJ (Military stuff, cheap and plentiful) out of my stainless Mini-14. I don’t own a decent bolt action in .223 and when you see a herd of goats, shooting the Mini-14 is a lot of fun! I tried reloading with 55 gr. PSP but got more meat damage and wasn’t as accurate. I have a modified Mini-14 with heavy barrel that shoots 62 gr. HP great but when you have to walk up and down a mountain side chasing goats, you learn to appreciate a lighter rifle.

    Sorry for the :hijacked Back to Alan, wish I could afford to buy Weatherby’s. I have a Browning A-bolt in .270 and .300 WSM (haven’t shot this one yet….too busy with my XT :D ).

    If you think that 7mm mag is to big for your area , better pass on the .270 WSM it is made off a .404 jeffery’s case and probably has more powder capacity than the 7mm, just a thought [=}=]

    I got junior his first huntin rifle, the Barrett is a fine rifle, however I’m not convinced it will bring down a Mature Whitetail.

    270 short mag.

    I just bought one. very flat shooting w/ plenty of power. I have a Remington 700 stainless, I dont think u can go wrong w/ a 270. I have a 300 win mag in a Remington also, great gun but a little too much bang for whitetails. 8D

    For deer hunting, it really won’t matter.

    Both are very good deer calibers.

    I have a .270 Browning A-bolt. It’s the best shooting gun I’ve ever had. :thumbup

    I got one of these chambered in a .44 for an ex-girlfriend from when I was a teenager-

    Last I heard from her she thought it was a really cute toy.

    Seriously, a .270 is ahrdly any different at all from a 7MM. Step out of the loop and go for a 6MM or a .243. Awesome deer guns when matched with the right cartridge and very easy for the kids to handle.

    .308 over the .270………. but not by a lot for deer. For bigger game the .308 wins hands down IMO, however if you want to “hammer” deer go with a 45-70. It will take everything on the planet with the right loads.
    Check this ammo out………. :D :shock: 8D http://www.garrettcartridges.com/products.asp
