berger and a 7mm rem mag

I have just upgraded to a 7mm rem mag from a 264 winmag.1
I was looking for a bullet with a good BC that will get me out there!
Have looked at A-Max and the VLD's and I think its a toss up between the two.
I shot out to 6/700yds with the 264 and would love to do the same if not a bit further with the 7mm rem mag.
what bullets would you choose?

regards
griff

Re: berger and a 7mm rem mag

Take your pick, I don't think you or the animals will notice a lot of difference.

I used to use the 162 a-max and have had a good run on the animals out to 638 yds. They were easy to get to shoot and performed extremely well, out of about 8 animals only 2 bullets didn't exit.

Unfortunately the 162 a-max is impossible to get in New Zealand at the moment.

I have switched to 168 bergers. They were easy to get to shoot 0.5" group at 100 yds. I haven't shot an animal with them yet but have shot them out to 700 yds with good accuracy.

Stu.
