If you are hand loading, I found the Swift Sciroco 150 to be a great shooting round in 4 different 7mm I've loaded for. The bullet has a great BC and I have dropped elk dead in their tracks out to 550 yards with it. Often at 400 yards, I have hit ribs on one side with a decent size entry wound in and the bullet exited out the far side with a good 1-2" hole. About half the time the bullet went through and through depending upon where the round hit in the ribs and how many bones it encountered. The bullets that I did recover mushroomed nicely and did not fall apart.
Three of the guns liked 67 grains of RL 22, and mine likes 68 grains. Its hot, and shoots 3/4" at 3280 fps out of a 26" brl. The 67 grain loads shoot 3150 out of 26" brls.
My only problem with the reloading is I can't find RL 22 anywhere.
