Re: Best Bullet
It is honestly hard not to buy several types of bullets. Each barrel is different. What one identical rifle may like, your rifle may not. My advice is start with the bullet you want, the one you think best suites your needs. Buy 100. Work with those 100. If you find a good load then concider yourself lucky! If not, try another weight. Unfortunatly there is no clear cut answer here because barrels are so unpredictable. For example I have a barrel that is the "right" caliber and the "right" twist for the 200 ACCUBONDS. In theory, this bullet should really shine in my barrel. Guess what? It is the bullet my rifle likes the least of any. Start with what you want and go from there. There is always a price to be paid in the relentless pursuit of LR shooting/hunting.
If I were in your shoes and with the info you ahe supplied, I would try the barnes TSX or TTSX bullets. If those dont work, I would try the ACCUBONDS next. If those dont work I would try a more traditional bullet such as the sierra game king or hornaday btsp's.
If you ever decide to up your yardage past 500 I would look very hard at the 162 AMAX by hornaday.

My answer to this is. The only reason is to make the 7 RM look good. There is no other reason.
