Your welcome.

You'll love the cauterucio's.

My 7stw was shooting the Barnes 140 XLC's all over the place. It shoots the 156 Cauterucio's 1/2 inch.

Re: 7MM 160 HPBT Sierra GameKing

Where can I get a hold of the 156 cauterucio's? I reload for my brothers Rem. M700 Sendero and my Ruger #1 stainless (traded my Win. M70 Laredo for it), both have factory barrels so I'll have to pass on the bullets that require a really quick twist. The LostRiver bullets have a very high B.C. but also have a very high pricetag, so I haven't tried them. The accuracy we got with the 160gr XLC's was about 1 MOA in my old Winchester and maybe a shade better in the Remington. One problem I ran into was that I couldn't load the bullets out very far and still have them fit into the magazine. So we sacrificed accuracy for portability. Happy hunting.

Re: 7MM 160 HPBT Sierra GameKing

You need to try the Barnes TSX I have a 7MM STW in a Rem Sendero. With the 140 TSX's I was shooting 3613fps with a 3 shot group of .294 at 100 yards. I have decided to use the 160 TSX's because I want one bullet for everything and that shoots 3351 fps with a 3 shot group of .734 at 100 yards. You have to try the new Barnes TSX they rock and a friend of mine who shoots a 30/06 used the 150's last year shot 5 deer and a antelope ranges from 50 yards to 400 yards and they all dropped where he shot them. He also shot them into a clay mold cleaned them up and I put them on the scale out of 3 bullets 2 were a 150 grains and 1 was 149 grains that is pretty good cause the bullet was a 150 grain to start with.
