How do accubond wound channels compare to tsx, ttsx, and fusions? Any idea?

In my experience, they are about equal to the TSX, maybe a bit smaller than the TTSX. Barnes likes velocity, and at the upper end they really cause a lot of damage. I would equate a 150 Barnes to a 168 in the .30 cal, for example.

I have no Fusion experience.

I prefer the Accubond to the Barnes or the Fusion myself.

The TTSX is the closest to the Accubond, but still falls short IME.

All are better than the ELD-X from what I've seen.

I’ve had good results with the ELD-X in my .308 what have you seen that made you not like it? I do shoot accubonds and like them also in some other calibers.

I've never personally shot the ELD-X, but one of my hunting buddies uses them in a few different cartridges, the 6.5 CM, .270 Win, and the .30/06 Sprg.

So far out of the 15-18 deer he's shot with them, none have had an exit wound. Several have required follow up shots to finish them off despite good shot placement. I personally have finished off 3 shot in the lung(s) with his 6.5 CM and the 143 gr ELD-X. The placement was good, put had absolutely piss poor penetration and almost non-existent expansion.
