Re: What Bullet for 7mm RUM?
Around here, my average shot is normally 200-250. I have, however, had shots as close as 10 yards, and shots as far as 800. I am looking for a bullet that will perform well in all situations. I like the SMK's for long-range, but I feel that the construction isn't tough enough at close range for reliable performance. The only downside I see with the TSX is the BC. It is something like .400 for a 160gr bullet, if memory serves me right. Not bad for short range, but a long range bullet it is not. To answer your question, I typically will try to take a shoulder shot on the bucks around here, especially when the range gets stretchy. So a bullet that will take this abuse is needed. Let me know what you guys think.
