Need suggestions for 7mm bullet

I currently use a 140 gr Nos BT in my 7mm wsm (Win. Coyote). I have had good success hunting whitetails ranging from 300 to 700 yards.
I would like to try a heavier bullet with a higher bc. I am looking for a bullet that may be a little better suited than the 140 gr bt, for these ranges. Would like to know more about smk and amax bullets. Any ideas would be appreciated.

Thanks
BH

I have been very happy with the 168 SMK's out of two different 7 Rem mags.

Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (where the shot goes, how big the group is, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.

162g amax is my vote-the published b.c. for the 168smk is .488,the b.c. for the 140nbt is .485.do the math,the 140gnbt wins considering the speeds it can be pushed at,but the amax conquers all[lol-on deer anyways],my-2-dave
