I'm planning an Aoudad hunt and it was suggested that I use a bonded bullet. I will be loading my own ammunition and I'm looking for bullet suggestions for my 300 Win Mag. Something 200+ grains? What load do you use?

Thanks.

I've killed a crap load of them using 7mm 160 AB and partition. Also 140 AB's and partitions. Hit 'em in the right place and any well constructed bullet works fine.

What Jgraider said....exactly.

In a .300 Win I think anything you can stick in the gun will work...

I took my Gold Aoudad with a .257 using factory 100g Norma spitzers. Good luck with your hunt.

I know guys who have killed plenty with 130 grain core lokts from a .270.

Iíve shot two with a .257 wby w/110 grain accubonds and both took multiple hits in the vitals.

My wife shot one dead center in the neck at 50 yards with a 7mm-08 and Hornady SSTís and the aoudad hit the deck, then jumped up and ran into the wild blue yonder, never to be seen again


I would use a 180 grain in a accubond and call it good.


They are tough animals. Break them down with a shoulder shot

I shot 5 aoudad in Jan at the PD hunt with a 6.5 creedmoor 129gr, none made it more than 50 yards. At 200+ grains i am sure you will be fine as long as your accuracy is there. Get prone or at least get some trigger sticks if you are trying to reach out there.

I killed a big ram with my 300 win mag using 168 grain bergers. He was quartered toward me at 200 yards. I put it on the point of the shoulder and it melted him.

In 300wm loading your own ammo I think it would be tough to beat a 175gr Barnes LRX or a 180gr Accubond. Both should give you nice flat shooting velocity and plenty of penetration.

130 gr Accubonds worked well for me. Killed a handful with a 270 back in January from 75 yards to 330 yards. None took more than a step with the first shot, shot at one multiple times but that is another story...

Any stout bullet, bonded or mono will work, just pick your favorite.

I was surprised actually, I had heard they were very tough to kill. Only recovered one accubond, 330 yards, steep uphill shot, recovered under offside hide in the back-strap and it looked like an advertisement bullet.

Killed me with Nosler partion 180 grain bullets out of my 300 Win Mag. Nosler partitions will not let you down.

In a 300 Mag, I donít know how you could go wrong with a 165 or 180 grain Accubond or Partition.


If you want something done, tell a Texan its impossible

A 150gr. or 165gr. Hornady GMX , Nosler Partition, E-Tip, or Accubond will do.

They are not bulletproof. I killed mine with a 154gr. Sierra BTSP.

I run the 215 Berger VLD-H in mine at 2910 fps. A friend of mine runs the same load and has killed a few at over 300 yards with the same bullet. But like others have said a good quality bullet with a decent BC for long shots should have no problem.
The 210gr VLD's are great as well.
