I have a 7mm RUM that is shooting the 180 grain Berger targets really well. Has anybody out there used this bullet for elk? And how did they perform? I’ll be using H 1000 for my powder. Thanks for the help.
I was shooting the 180 hb and really liked it. when they brought out the 175 Elite hunters, I tried them and didn't change a thing in my load and they were just as accurate and they are good hunting bullets too.
180 Hunting VLDs failed to perform consistently on 3 animals for me from a 7mm STW. I can go into more detail or copy multiple write ups from past threads they didn’t pencil and didn’t kill so my only guess is very rapid expansion. Recovered 2 animals and never got the third.
