Re: 7mmWSM : Is it enough?


Yea, I agree they were a great "Wintertime" hunting bullet. For me, in 6.5, I had a 300Weatherby and at 1:9 at 3400fps with the 140's, about 1/2 or less would arrive at the target. Keep in mind most of my hunting with that gun was woodchuckin and crowin, so, in PA, that's pretty much a summertime hobby. Now, for deer, the only year I hunted with the 6.5, it was 70 degrees on opening day at 7:00am. Not too far from summertime. I did get a couple deer later in the next week with them after it snowed and cooled down. I think the lead in those bullets is softer also.

If you want bullets to really "explode", why not chuck em up and drill the hollow points a little. That'll make em come apart.
If you have something that you disassemble and reassemble enough times, sooner or later, you'll have two!
