    Has anyone tried the Hornady 7 mm 162 HPBT match bullet on game?

    No but if its anything like their a-max or sst then dont do it. Get a bullet that will hold together better. They are waaaay too soft.

    Not a game bullet. Great for coyotes though if you want to see them explode.

    Stick with the 162gr Interlock or SST.

    The interlock will give you similar terminal performance to the Nosler Partition but with better accuracy and the SST will give you similar performance to the Nosler BT but not as explosive.
