Hey guys I have found tons of great advice and learned allot from the forum! Many thanks!!!! I'll have to say that reloading and long range shooting just wouldn't be as fun and thrilling if I didn't have a place like this to gain knowledge and read about fellow hunters and shooters experiences!!! I have 2 close friends that don't know anything about reloading and long range shooting. Both have come to me wanting me to load them a good load for there 7mm rem mags. They will be hunting deer, elk, and beer. I'm not exactly sure what there primary shooting distances will be but I do know that they will be spot at stalking elk. I would like to develope them a good load for shots out to 500 yards. I know that one of them watched a 200 class whitetail for about 15 minutes last year and never shot because it was 500 yards out. Elk and beer hunting is not something that I am very familiar with given the fact that I don't have the money to go on all of these hunts with them. However I can tell you that I would not hesitate to take a 500 yard shot on a deer with my personal 7mm and my loads. The two bullets that I am looking to make them a load out of are 160 grain nosler accubonds or partitions? Which one of these is going to handle the worst case the best (500 yard elk shot)? I just want both of them to make the shot on the trophy of a lifetime and bring it down and back to hang on there wall! Many thanks to all inputs!
