What bullets for big deer out to 500 yards?

I finally drew a buck tag for unit 21 in colorado, I dont plan on taking a 500 yard shot, but Id like to be prepared if I have to. I shoot a 7mm rem mag with a 24 inch barrel. I do load my own bullets so Id like to know what you guys are using. I am a shoulder shooter also, so I need something that breaks bones. I have looked and looked on here for this same question, I have found close, but not exactly what Im looking for.
Thanks for you looking

my gun likes the 160 grain Accubond and i think that is the bullet to use.

168 or 180grain Berger VLDs will get the job done.
