help AMMO 7MM REM MAG

Hİ everyone. l need a answer for my situation. or let me say l need your thoughts on the situation.
l have 3 boxes of 175 grain 7mm rem mag pointed soft points left. l have had really good succsess with this ammo on ibex from ranges to 200-500 meters. now l need to buy more ammo as l dont have much left. but my question is.. l have 5 boxes of 150 grain federal soft points ( POWER-SHOCK ) AND Hİ SHOCK ) thay pretty much the saim thing l think. now l wanna ask if the 150 grain will drop em dead like the 175 grains do when not hit in the vitals. l dont wanna be looking for crippeled animals all day ? or should l go out and buy some more boxes of 175s but the thing with this is l dont wanna waist the 5 boxes of 150s if thay will stop İBEX ( MOUNTAİN GOAT ) in there tracks ?

thanks alot.

    A 150 will dispatch any animal just as fast as a 175 when hit in the vitals. You will not have any problems with the 150's.

    thanks alot for yur reply. so you meen the 150 will drop animals like the 175 when not hit directly at the vital organs but close to them ? as when l miss the vital area but land the bullet close anough with the 175s the animal still goes down as the shock wave of the bullets power bruces the animals lungs or strops the heart or something.

    I agree with Creedmoor. The 150's will do fine. But why change what you have proven that works?

    Why not just sell them and buy more of what works!!!
    Or you could reload and have what works all the time!!

    I completely understand trying to save money. They will work fine as long as you do your part with shot placement.
