What bullet in 7mmRM for big game in short/long range
My plan was to use Berger Hunting VLD 7mm/168grs in my new hunting rifle (Blaser R93 Proffesional), but that bullet is hard to get in Norway at this time. So i need to look at another bullet. And i'm thinking of Nosler Accubond 160grs. My hunting for this caliber are going to be:
Moose up to 650ponds inside 200meter (230yrd)
Red deer up to 350pounds inside 500meter (550yrd)
Black Bear for the first time in BC/Canada in june-2010.
My first hunt for this new rifle and bullet are going to be in Scotland after Roe buck in may-2010.
My main longrange rifle is a Sauer SSG3000 cal.6,5-284, in this rifle i use Hornady A-max 140grs @ 2950fps with great succes out to 700yrd +/-, but it's to heavy for stalking all day. Thats the reason for my new hunting rifle.
Anybody have another suggestions on bullet choice? I need one with high BC and precision, and i can not think of another bullet that will fit... And i have been reading alot of youre comments of the Accubond.
