    Yes I did, I kind of figured that I would get alot of responses. Asking a hunter what bullet he uses is about the same as asking him what is his favorite truck.

    As if you don't have enough advice... I am 100% sold on the hornady interbonds. Their accuracy is better than the partitions for my guns. They retain a good percentage of their weight but will still expand well at lower velocities well. We have taken elk with them from 30 yards to 500 yards with zero complaints.

    There are many excellent elk bullets. I'd go with one that shoots best in your rifle.

    I'll be using Partitions in just over a month. But I've used Noslers for years, so it was an easy choice for me. Others have used other brands.

    BTW, I keep reading good stuff about Hornadys.

    You betcha! I reload their BTSPs for deer and antelope and go to the Interbond in my 30-06s for elk, as it's all you say and more!

Any feedback would be appreciated.
    I shot my first bull with a .270 WIN, with 160 Grain Partition handloads. Went through both shoulders at 175 yards. I am sold on the Partition.
