Do You Know Your Bullets?

This is one of my favorite hunting bullets? Do you know the manufacturer and type?

    note enough clues for me to figure it out.

  2. Looks like a solid copper Barnes to me. No lead core, so it isn’t an Accubond, SST, Ballistic Tip or Scirocco.

  3. gunwriter says:

    It is a 150 grain, .308 caliber Nosler Accubond.

  4. Mike Wodjenski says:

    I thought they had lead in them, my first thought was barnes.

  5. RG says:

    They do have lead in them. Look closer. You can see the transition from jacket to lead. It’s the way the light hits the bullet in this picture that deceives you. Also note the lead is bonded to the jacket thus the name “AccuBOND”
