Re: 7mm Rem mag
For the bear go with 175 grain SGK loaded with 61 grains of RL-22 which should put you at 2900 ft./s muzzle and 3,269 ft. lbs at 600 yds you will be looking at 76” drop bullet going 1,926 ft/s and 1,442 ft. lbs, this should take care of the teddy. (avoid gut shots) for a bamby 175 grain at 600 yards will do as well, going with lighter bullet will decrease impact energy but you will win few feet on ft./s, both creatures wouldn’t know a difference Jgood luck
Going with 160 grain bullet at 600 yards will make 70” drop speed will decrease from 3,075 ft/s muzzle to 1,914 ft./s and energy will be at 1302 ft. lbs, so 175 grain is a way to go, but if your target within 0-300 yards use 160 grain bullet, +300 yards is the break point where 160 grain will loose energy over 175 grain and +500 yard is where speed will dissipate over 175 grain bullet.
