I have a Remington Sendero in 7mm ultra. I have been shooting 140 gr partitions. Looking for a bullet with a better ballistic coefficient. I have had 168 gr. Bergers ordered from cabalas for over 1 mo. So would like suggestions on bullets I can actually find. Anyone else still having problems finding reloading components? I also could use some H1000. Where do you guys buy your supplies from?gun)

I would take a look at the 160gr accubond or hornady 162gr sst. Both are great bullets but there is lots of choices. Good Luck!

I emailed wildcat. Nice guy, even offered to send me a sample of his bullets. However, he didn't think a 1 in 9.5 rate of twist (sendero rate of twist) would stabilize the 200 gr bullet. Like wise Berger doesn't recommend their 180 gr in less than a 9 rate of twist. I think I will give the 160gr accubond a try. Thanks

For 1200yrds you would really benefit to use the 162grn A-max. It will open at a lower velocity than the Accu-bond and at that distance will work as a normal bullet and not a Grenade.

Try the 180 Bergers, they will stabilize. We have shot them in a 10 twist 280 Akley and they are a super accurate long range bullet.

I wouldn't recommend the Accu at 1200 yds. They will not expand at that velocity! I shot an elk at 1025 with one in my 300 ultra and might as well have used a solid. Also you can get a higher B.C. in other better choices IMO........Rich
