Re: Best longrange hunting bullet for 7mm mag?
I've used the 162 A-Max quite a bit on whitetails. Shot from the 7STW & 7WSM they kill like lightening. Near or far, DEAD. Shoulder shots or lungs, DEAD.
The A-Max is inexpensive, easy to find and very accurate in every rifle I have used them in. They also kill game from groundhogs to whitetails with no problem.
For whatever it's worth, the 180 VLD's also kill quickly but I have limited "on game" experience with them.
