Re: Short and sweet 7mm Mag recipies
I think the 160 accubond is a good choice. I have more terminal ballistics experience with the scirocco 150, but they are more expensive and at least in my rifle they do not shoot as well as the accubonds.
Up to 400 yds you don´t need very hot loads and I would suggest something that makes the bullet leave the muzle at around 2950 ft/s.....this way yiu make sure it works also well at close range ( i think it would anyway even if it were driven faster). I don´t thionk the accubond is too hard, it should open up at close range too.
I´ve got good accuracy with the accuboind at 2940 ft/s out of a factory remington mountain ks.
If he is not going to shoot a lot, and wants to save money, I would not go to a metering system and just buy a hand - not digital- scale.
I posted some pics of recovered sciroccos some time ago; others I have not been able to recover and did well on red deer.
