    what hunt would you pick in a 7stw for elk hunting I know some will say the hybrid isn’t a hunting bullet but they work great in other calibers. Also what are some pet loads for you guys and gals. I’ll work up to any info give just trying to make a decision on what bullet to start with and a good velocity and good accuracy

    The 160 gr bullets are kinda perfect for this caliber. That being said, I've got the 162 & 175 gr ELDX bullets shooting great in my rifle.
    For the 162 gr, I'm using 78.8gr of H1000
    For the 175 gr, it's 73.6gr of Retumbo
    Both shoot under 0.5 moa

    A 180 Hybrid out of a 7LRM took the bull in my avatar at a tad over 650 yards. Worked for me
