What is the best bullet to shoot in a Ruger 7mm mark II . For distances around 500 yds. Hunting whitetail deer. I want accuracy but do not want to lose knockdown power. Any suggestions?

Phillip, I would say a 7mm with any bullet has plenty of KO for any deer at 500yds. Some may shoot flatter than others and perform better at farther ranges though.

Just a moose hunters opinion though. Len, Dave and others have the real life based oppinions your probably hoping for.

I outfitted in New Mexico for seven years and saw the 7mm Rem Mag perform quite nicely on Large Muleys in the 500 yd plus range, with a variety of bullets. If I remember correctly, I believe that most of the hunters were using 150g Nosler Partitions.

Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1

The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
