Re: Which bullet for the 7mmRemMag?
Back when I could only get 80 pounds per box, so I had to order lots of boxes of Hornady blems, the best 7mm bullets I got were the 162 gr SST. The 175 gr soft point and the 154 gr round nose are not as good.
So I have leaned to live with the 162 gr, and I have a couple of my 7mmMags will shoot sub moa, and a couple of my 7mmMag rifles will not.
I have shot allot of Barnes triple shock from a 7mmMag, and they are not as good.
The partition or solid Copper bullet are better for quartering away elk shots with lots of penetration needed.
But the small animals and the broadside animals are better off with thin skinned fast expanding bullets that blow out both lungs right now.
95% of the ruminants I shoot at are presenting me with a broadside shot.
What does it all mean?
