Re: 7 mag - 180 gr Berger VLD
I'm shooting a Hart 26", #6 contour, 9 twist. I have not shot the 180's, just looking at the MV's of other shooter on the this site. Our whitetails in the southeast about 80- 150 lbs, so I don't think the 7 mag can push the 180 fast enough to expand on deer that size at 1100 yds. More likely it will just pinhole thru the deer. As for the hybrids, they are supposed to be less sensitive to seating depth, thus easier to reload. I can push the 168 fast enough to do the job at long range. Currently shooting the 162 A-max and I have killed 2 deer this season. One at 630 and the other at 657 yds. I can get 6-7 inch groups at 1100 yds with the Amax. Just wanted to try something new.
