Re: Favorite bullet weight for a 270 & 7mm
regarding favorite bullets for 7mm:
Don't forget the 162 A-max. I read extensively on this bullet's performance and it is a winner. If you couldn't get the 168 VLD to shoot this is a great alternative. Google the 162 and read hunter's accounts of its killing abilities. According to what I found Hornady used to list it for hunting thin skinned animals.
While it wasn't a long shot by this site's standards, my 7 rem mag shot this bullet very accurately and did a DRT on a coues wt at 409 yds. The animal dropped and didn't even twitch. High double shoulder shot. Meat damage was minimal.
