7mm mag match grade hunting round?

I am new to reloading, and this site. I am looking for a good round for reloading a 7mm mag. Currently I shoot Winchester supreme nosler balistic tip factory rounds. I'm looking for a match grade bullet for reloading, that is good for hunting. I'm not sure if there is a good match grade for 7mm that will suffice for dropping deer. Any help? Thanks all, Tony.

    Check out Berger bullets, they are extremely accurate and good quality bullets. Also, the Nosler Accubonds are very accurate and perform flawlessly, too.

    For my 7RM's I shoot Berger 168's and 180's. Also Nosler Accubond 160's.

    Thank you Mudrunner, while looking into rounds, I read sierra said not to use hunting, didn't know if they where the only ones that say it?

    As mudrunner stated go load some 180 or 168 Bergers and place them well. I doubt you will be disappointed . They are indeed premium killing bullets.

    the 168 and 140 bergers are awesome for hunting. also the 140 accubond. all three are very accurate. i use either norma or nosler brass .

    The Berger 168 VLD hunting bullet is awesome. They don't mind jumping in most rifles.

    Bergers are the standard, but I love the Hornady Amax. I shoot them in my .308, .260, 300 wm and 7mm mag. I have killed long distance elk and antelope with the 300 and some close deer and elk also. The bullet performs well. I have never shot one with my 7mm (162 gr) but I am sure it will work very well. They perform similar to the Berger. A friend shot an antelope at 650 with my .260 using a 140 amax and it did plenty of damage. Just another option...
