Re: What's everyones thought of using the 7mm 168gr or 175gr sierra matchking on deer

ok so since i've settled on the bergers i have another question.

i've always used bullets that have a crimping groove. as we all know bergers dont have a groove. so should i leave these un-crimped or seat them with a light crimp?

my concern with leaving them uncrimped is that they could end up sliding in the case due to recoil or hitting the magazine box.

    You'll be fine without crimping them. I don't drimp even if there is a crimp groove or cannelure. If it worries you about the remaining rounds in the mag, make sure you rotate them when you reload the mag.
