Re: Hunting w/ smk 168\'s 7mm
61g of RL-22 with either the 160g AB or 162g AMAX has givin me great results so far, .5" at 100 yards with both bullets, I got lucky finding a universal load there. They shoot 2900fps. I've played with the top 3 bullets I think are suitable for the 7 RM, 160g AB, 162g amax, and 168g VLD and I personally find the 168g VLD to probly be the best as far as all around goes, being accuracy, and being able to use them on anything from targets, varmints, deer, elk, and bears. The amax is a little light for elk, but would probly still get the job done at LR. The 160g AB doesn't ahve the BC as the 2 other target bullets, but for a "hunting" bullet in the 7 RM from 0-800 yards, would be tough to beat. JMO.
