The best factory 7mm RemMag ammo I found (before I started handloading) was Nosler Custom Ammo 7mm Remington Mag 160 Grain AccuBond Spitzer Box of
but this Nosler Trophy Grade Ammo 7mm Remington Mag 160 Grain AccuBond Box of
will work just fine, too.
I am not a fan of the 140 or 150gr bullets for the magnum 7mm calibers, although there are lots of guys out there who have excellent luck with them. I do shoot 140's out of my 7mm-08, but as for my magnum 7mm's, I have always shot 160's (11 years) with no issues, and no reason to stop.
Your gun might prefer the 140's, you just never know.
One of the main reasons I got into handloading was b/c I couldn't buy the ammo I wanted for my 7Mag for a reasonable price. I wanted 160gr Accubonds factory loaded, and at the time Nosler was the only company doing so, and back then it was still about $60.00 a box of 20. Not to mention that my .257 Wby and 7mm STW ammo had also peaked at $80 a box of 20. Then Federal quit loading my STW ammo with 160 Accubonds...... So, that left me with no other alternative......And handloading has been the single best thing I've ever done for my shooting.
