AccuBond® and AccuBond® Long Range share similar names and the same bonding technology, yet they are in fact two very different bullets designed for different applications.
The standard AccuBond® is designed to be a highly-accurate big game hunting bullet suitable for use on a wide variety of game. The AccuBond® Long Range is designed with the same purpose in mind, but we completely re-designed the AccuBond® Long Range to optimize Ballistic Coefficient and allow the bullet to expand over a much broader range of impact velocities than the original AccuBond®. Where the AccuBond® is designed to reliably expand at a minimum impact velocity of 1800 fps, the AccuBond® Long Range is designed to expand at a minimum impact velocity of 1300 fps. This allows the AccuBond® Long Range bullets to provide effective game-taking performance at ranges beyond which the AccuBond® would no longer reliably expand. It is important to note that the advantages of the AccuBond® Long Range don’t begin to play a role until the range begins to exceed 500 yards or impact velocity drops below 1800fps.
For applications where shots will range from zero to 400-500 yards, the AccuBond® is an excellent choice, but for applications where shot distances are beyond 500 yards, the higher Ballistic Coefficient and the enhanced expansion characteristics of the AccuBond® Long Range offer significant advantages.
