I want to shoot heavies with high BC in this barrel, so what do you all recommend apart from Berger’s? They are just too difficult to get here in the quantities I require.
I was thinking ABLR, but have zero experience in 7mm and STW velocities.

What say you?

Cheers.
ABLR all day. That bullet shoots, and anchored deer. Just sort them when you open the box.

Yep, ran the barrel in with 150gr BT’s and have settled on 168gr ABLR’s.
The 175gr ABLR’s I ordered have still not arrived.
Doesn’t matter, we are still in Stage 4 restrictions, can’t get out to shoot now indefinitely, doesn’t look like we’ll be out of Stage 4 before Christmas.
Totally ruined my 50th birthday, which is what this rifle was for!

Cheers.

What is your rate of twist? You may be on the edge with the 175. If it's a 9.25. Maybe not . I had trouble with 168lrx. But it's a LOOOONG bullet!

Yeah, twist is 9.25, but I don’t intend running mono’s.
This is my first, and most likely last, 7mm. Just never been a fan to be honest.
Just like the 6mm calibre, it does nothing for me.

Cheers.
