Re: 7mm Cutting Edge Bullets

I also loaded them to the recommended length. Load development was fast in my factory browning lrh. We have shot a mule deer at 507 and an antelope at 475 this year, and the bullets performed well. Both bullets passed trough leaving round 1.5 inch holes for exit wounds. The bullet broke the off shoulder on the mule deer. I think I will continue to use these bullets for elk, and find a load with the bergers for deer and antelope. I like the bang flop berger effect out of my 6.5.

Re: 7mm Cutting Edge Bullets

How about their fowling? Do they copper foul any more or less than bergers?

Re: 7mm Cutting Edge Bullets

My 7mag has a Mcgowen barrel. I get hardly any fowling at all from either bullet. I have only shot 40 or so of the CEs, I cleaned with Tetra after 30 shots and had hardly any copper at all. These CEs are spendy so I don't think I'll ever fire more than 10 or so a year now that its dialed. I'll probably use Bergers for deer and antelope in the future but this year I'll test the CEs on everything.

Re: 7mm Cutting Edge Bullets

Another update: Shot a buck antelope last weekend with the cutting edge 160. Not long range, but had a straight on chest shot at 200 yards and decided this would be a good opportunity to test these bullets. Shot angle was downhill slightly. Hit him center of chest, bullet made a mess and exited out his stomach then went completely through his hind leg about five inches above his knee. Due to warm weather I took him to a meat processor before skinning. So I don't have a full report. All I know is at least part of that bullet went most of the way length wise through that antelope exited and went through some more bone and exited again.
Elk season starts tomorrow and I can't wait to do some further testing!

Re: 7mm Cutting Edge Bullets

For the price, they should not only kill your elk, they should skin it and pack it back to camp. Cut the firewood and make sure your whiskey glass is never empty.

Re: 7mm Cutting Edge Bullets

I know this is an older post but any updates ? I shoot 160 accubonds in 7mm Allen mag and was considering using these bullets. Use the 225 CE in my 338 lapua and they work amazing.
Thanks
