Sierra's are kind of old school but usually will shoot as good or better than anything else, and the price is certainly right. However if you want a bullet that stays together, it's not the one.

(Same could be said for long range Accubonds)

Another Nosler AB fan here. They have been flawless for me on deer and elk.

My first choice is the Accubond.  Flies really well and performance on game from close to long range has been right down, right now!  The Hornady GMX would be my second choice as a couple buddies have had great success with them on elk.

Accubonds are my favorite bullet.

i kinda think i narrowed down my search to  nosler either partition or accubond  or sierra tipped game kings
Two of the three you're looking at do what you're wanting, one doesn't. Don't ever plan on going from an Interlock to another cup and core bullet that has a plastic tip and seeing more weight retention. In an 06 you could go to a 180gr Interlock and see more weight retention just from the fact that the bullet will be going slower at ranges that make most cup and core bullets to come apart. Between Accubonds and Partitions go with what you're rifle likes more. I've abused Accubonds at ranges/velocities where the Interlocks ability to stay together has become questionable for me, and the Accubonds have held together. Partitions at the same velocities ranges have a tendency to blow the nose off so weight retention ends up close to %60.

After writing all that, I'd try 180gr Interlocks first then go towards Accubonds or Partitions.

A lead sled is the devi's rifle rest; they do terrible things to stocks, scopes, rings and bases. :twocents:

A lead sled forces the rifle to a stop much quicker than your shoulder does.  Would never use one with a good rifle.
