Re: 7mm-08 bullets/loads

How far is your furthest expected shots on this bear hunt? That's a major factor in bullet selection. For bears your going to want penetration. If it were me I'd go with a Barnes bullet. I've never tried the LRX lineup but now I'll have to give it a go.

120g Barnes Vortex has been poison for both deer and hogs out of our two 7-08's.
