Remington Premier AccuTip Ammo
.308 Remington Accu Tip
This ammo is very accurate for a factory load. It has replaced the premier ballistic tip ammo that I had used for many years that was had a more rapid expansion but did not retain its mass that is critical for longer range kills. I have taken 7 deer with this ammo in .308 165gr at ranges from 40yds out to 450yds. Every one that was shot from 100+yds never took a step but, the two that were at 40yds and 60yds ran a maximum of 40yds. This is fantastic ammo for longer range on deer but, has limitations for those up close and personal shots. If you use this ammo for deer and plan on hunting larger game the Remington Premier Scirocco in 165gr shoots the some in my 700.

Remington Premier AccuTip
My 9 year old son recently harvested his first ever deer. It was a five point whitetail buck. He shot the buck at a distance of 119 yards, and the (.243) 95 gr. AccuTip hit like a sledgehammer. The shot struck the buck behind the left shoulder quartering away and dropped him instantly, not even a step! When we cleaned the animal, we found the bullet just under the hide behind the right shoulder. It had mushroomed perfectly and retained almost all the bullet weight. A great product, and a great hunt.

Remington Accutip Ammo
I've had great success with this load at the range on paper from 100 to 200+ yards. But when shooting this load on whitetails, my shots have typically been, like most people that hunt deep in the woods, in the neighborhood of 65-75 yards, at most. This bullet doesn't open up fast enough for that distance. The one deer I took at about 110 yards a few years back ran all of 10 yards after it was hit and the Accutip did some serious damage, basically shredding the heart. I would say this is a round for 100+ yards or more....but still very accurate for a factory load.

Disbelief in lost deer
Four deer walked underneath my treestand. After they passed they caught wind of me and at 30 yards I shot one of them square in the sholder with the 150 grain 7mm Rem Mag bullet. I saw the deer jump as the bullet hit and the deer ran off running into some brush and once the brush stopped moving I thought for sure I had a dead deer. To my total disbelief I found "NO" blood and never found the deer after a slam dunk shot.
A few weeks later I shot a deer quartering away at 75 yards with the same bullet and dropped it in its tracks.
