Stick with the 145, the 168 will not like that slow twist. 145 is plenty for Elk.The reason I started this thread is that although I really loved the 168 LRX and it’s BC, I’ve read in the 7Stw thread that it won’t be stabilized in less than an 8 twist bbl. Mine is a 10 twist Memtb, I agree with your comments.Maybe I should try to find a handful of 168s and try them. Every rifle is different!! If unsuccessful, I know the 145 LRX is fine. Thanks for all the help folks!!
I used the 140 TTSX out of a 7mm Rem Mag. I brought home my first bull with it. My original plan was to go with a heavier bullet but my local gun shop was all out. Turned out to be just fine. As always said, shot placement is more important that bullet weight. Go for it.
Thanks again guys. I truly appreciate the great advice. Hespco, I tell my friends who will come on this hunt that it’s FAR more important to be able to hit an 8” circle quickly from any ragged rest ( or offhand) than to be able to shoot 0.5” groups from a bench! Thanks again all!!!
