    I have been working up loads for my Remington Milspec M700 5R in .300 WM and have found the Hornady GMX bullets to be quite accurate along with the Bergers.
    I am trying to decide on a good bullet to use for elk and mule deer this October that will do the job with good placement.
    I have shot some good groups with Nosler Accubonds and have tried both 165 gr. and 180 gr. The GMX that i have been shooting the last few days are 150 and 165 gr.
    The reports and other threads I have read about the Accubonds tout them to being good performers, but I have yet to see any reports on GMX. Does anyone have information on the effectiveness of these bullets on large game?

    Hornady answered the question with very limited expansion. I will not go any further with them.

    I'm using tried & true Accubonds on my elk hunt. An elk hunt is too important to be experimenting with unknown bullet performance.

    I think I will have to agree with stalkingbear. I will be shooting test loads with Accubonds next week.
