This is the 7 max, running 170's and a 7.5 twist. The 7 mag is using the 151's and an 8.5 twist. Sorry for the confusion ha ha
Have you tried anything in the 170 class in cup-and-core in the Max for comparison velocities?

Nobody has said anything about these for a while, you're all still out hunting perhaps, but I'm curious if anyone had any further successes or failures with the Cayugas? I have a 7mag and thinking about trying them, I have a 9 twist, so I might be stuck with 151s but I'd sure love to run the 170s. Stability calculator shows marginally stable to almost comfortably stable for 170s, comfortably stable for varying conditions for the 151s.

My daughter shot her Mule deer doe at 200 yards with them out of her 25 wssm using the 117gr. Very impressive.

Good. Describe the terminal performance please. Impact location? Fast kill?
She hit her in the front shoulder it had a little bit bigger than a quarter size hole going in and two exist holes coming out the other side. Each just a little bit bigger. The deer tried to run but ended up rolling down the hill and that was all she wrote for it. Really impressed by there not being very much blood shot. She shot an antelope at 345 yards one year with the 115gr Berger's and the whole side of the animal was nothing but blood shot.

Good job. Sounds like it acts similar to the Hammers..?
