7RUM 1/12 help

I have a 7 rum with a 1/12 twist. I'm looking for someone with some experience with this slow twist to help me pick a bullet. I've tried 140 and 160Ab with little luck. The 140 actually gave me a lower coefficient on the JBM stability calculator but shot better. Not great but better.

    Whitetail. I think it is a lower grade shilen if there is such a thing. Hammer forged I believe.

    i shot several head of big game in the 80's with the 120 nosler solid base . including a big mule deer (180S) and a record book antelope. for any whitetail south of sask a 120 baltip should do it just fine.
