bullet recommendation for 7wsm

I just had a lightweight 7wsm built with a 10.25 twist barrel. What bullet would you recommend for 50-600 yards? 168gr Berger might be the way I go but what if the rifle won't shoot those? Try a lighter bullet or switch to another brand?

If you can't get the longer/heavier bullets to stabilize try the 140AB. You will get a flat trajectory and the wind drift won't be bad up to 600yds.
I have found them to shoot well also.
Plus they will stay together better for the close range shots

Most of the 160+ long range bullets will probably need a faster twist. I have never used anything but a 1 - 9" on any 7mm build and have never regretted it.
