Re: fur friendly 7mm rem mag load?

I use to shoots the 150 BT is a 7 mag. I promise the BT's will blow big holes in yotes. The poly tips are for expansion, and that is what they do.

Try the Sierra Varminter 100 gr 7mm bullet in front of 64.0 gr H4831.

Yea big like stick your head through the hole in the hide big, they do die fast though lol. If you want to turn a yote inside out like a good varmint round their the way to go

Are you sure we aint related= Asking for advice and then do just what you where told would not work anyway The 150 Noslers are going to make skinning very interesting I dont care how much you slow them down!
Must be a distant relitive though as I would only use them if Partitions where my only other choice. A leadtip would be a much better choice.
Full steam ahead. Please post video and pics of your results though

Re: fur friendly 7mm rem mag load?

ive seen first hand what a 150 grain BT will do to a 150 pound deers skull... i would have taken pics of that. buuuttttt it was a bit of a mess... its brain was missing, its antler went flying 20 yards, an eye was gone, the other eye was hanging outside of its head, and most importantly... IT WAS AWESOME

ive got some 150 BT's already loaded, so i will take one with that. and if i get lucky ill get the other with a 175 grain FMJ.
