Re: 7mm-08 bullet for mule deer & black bear

Your current load obviously works well for you I wouldn't change a thing, but go ahead and experiment with other bullets and see if you find something you like. you'll still have a load that you know works well.
Keep in mind the animals we shoot for food and display are not bullet proof. Contrary to popular belief, they bleed and die just like they did a hundred years ago. Being competent with a given rifle is far more important than impressive ballistics and poor shootability. High velocity misses never put a steak in the freezer.
