Very good input on the Nosler Accubond, thanks guys. I have looked at the E Tip bullet and I think it looks real good, but I don't handload, and the only E Tip load I have found is the Winchester loaded with a 150 grain one for my .308, not a heavy enough bullet for me.

The largest thing I have killed with a 180 gr Accubond out of a 308 is a 300+ pound boar, and it was a 100 yard shoulder shot and a complete pass through.

a 150 gr. bullet in a .308 is more than enough ..IF you do your part

I handload and have used Hornady SST's, Barnes TSX, Ballistic Tips and Accubonds. The Nosler Accubonds have been the best I've used so far from ranges as close as 20 yards (where most bullets will "blow up" at high velocity) to as far away as 400 plus. I shot a large doe this year ranged at 413 and passed through after completely destroying the internals. I feel its the best all around bullet at least for my needs. CJ

Agree with Heinz...308 - 150 grain is big enough..actually it's probably the best option for the 308.
We have used accubonds out of a 25-06 (110 gr) and a 270 (140 gr) for several elk in the last 4 years with excellent results.

I dropped a cow elk at 200 yards with a 180 grain Barnes TSX out of a 30-06. The animal went down instantly with the bullet entering the chest just behind the left front leg, traveling below the spine and was recovered among the intestines. Recovery weight of the bullet was 172 grains.

the question was !!!!!!

bullets for my .308. I was just wanting some input on their performance when trying to smash through heavy shoulders of elk and larger animals than deer.

.308 caliber ..not 3006 or 7 mm or 300mag ...lets not stray away from the question that was asked ...

Since the .308 and the 30-06 both shoot the same diameter bullets at comparative speeds the bullets will have similar performance out to their ballistic point blank ranges.

I wasn't trying to tell you a story about my 30-06, I was trying to let you know how well a .308 diameter 180 grain Barnes TSX held together out of a 30 caliber rifle when hitting an elk.
