Hello, has anyone hunted with this bullet, 7mm 171great ??
Or any match burner ??
what are you shooting it in?? I've shot a few hundred of the 171 barnes matchburners. They have done well for me with mild loads in a 7rem and do well for me in cold weather in my 7rum with a rather mild load with retumbo. I think the bullet is a bit lightly constructed to really push hard from a bigger magnum though. I'm using the 175 hdy interloack at present but working with the 168 berger vld target. I'll shoot the barnes up the next couple of winters.
