Re: Whitetail lethal, light accurate 7mm bullets

For any and all 7mm calibers, a good rule of thumb is 1:9 twist, unless you plan on shooting those non-existant 195gr Berger VLD's. In which case you will want a 1:8.5 twist.

Re: Whitetail lethal, light accurate 7mm bullets

ive used the 120bt in about every 7mm up to and including the 7 rem mag and its allways performed well even at mag velocitys. Yes its not a barnes and will expand fast but ive yet to put one in the boileroom of a deer that i didnt package backstraps the next day.

Sounds like the 120's are perfect for a little 7-30 waters. Nice little deer rifle to start with in an encore. Now I have to get a load built and try it.
