I am currently just getting into reloading, but jumping in with both feet. I currently am using factory Nosler 140 accubonds which have served my CA ridgeline well on deer to this point and are 1/2 MOA @ 100 in my rifle. I have always thought the AB to be pretty good for all around work from short woods ranges to 500 yards. I hold them with scirocco's to be one of my favorites. After very deayed killing on a properly placed short range shot this year on a blacktail, I have begun to look elsewhere. Ordered up a set of redding dies and some US869 to get started. I have been looking at bullet selection for quite sometime but am on the fence. The 140 HVLD's sure look good BC wise, but will they do what they need to at short range with that much velocity. I have heard a few issues with the ELDx at .26 Nosler velocities at short range as well. Are the TTSX to stout? have no experience with them. I would like good all around load suited for close range blacktail hunts to 700-yard mule deer hunts. I see a lot of feedback on the creedmoor forums, but not much about the Nosler specifically. So all with much more experience than myself, please chime in. Thanks in advance.
