What is the best bullet to shoot in a Ruger 7mm mark II . For distances around 500 yds. Hunting whitetail deer. I want accuracy but do not want to lose knockdown power. Any suggestions?

    Phillip, I would say a 7mm with any bullet has plenty of KO for any deer at 500yds. Some may shoot flatter than others and perform better at farther ranges though.

    Just a moose hunters opinion though. Len, Dave and others have the real life based oppinions your probably hoping for.

    The answer to your question depends so much on how you feel a bullet should perform...rapid vs controlled expansion, etc. Probably easier to answer it well if you carefully describe how you want it to perform.

    But, for long ranges of 500 yards or a bit more read my post at:

    I outfitted in New Mexico for seven years and saw the 7mm Rem Mag perform quite nicely on Large Muleys in the 500 yd plus range, with a variety of bullets. If I remember correctly, I believe that most of the hunters were using 150g Nosler Partitions.
