7MM Mag factory ammo recommendation for elk
I am posting this for a friend that has a Weatherby Accumark in 7MM Mag - not sure of the barrel length (24"?) or twist (1:9.5"?) but he is now using a HSM 180gr Berger VLD grouping ~1.00" at 100 yards. Prior to that he was using 160gr NABs (IIRC), same or close to the Berger grouping.
I offered to load for him if he buys the dies (I have a 7MM STW dies but not the 7MM Mag dies) and whatever bullet he wants but he insist staying with factory ammo. Anyways, not sure where he read it but apparently he is convinced that a 168gr will group better. HSM has 168grainers.
Shots will be all under 500 yards, most likely 200-250 yards. Looking forward for any information to pass to him. Thank you in advance for your support and understanding.
