if you can find them, use them. They are flat out my favorite hunting bullet. I use Partitions to work up loads and then check a couple rounds with BBCs at 300. They expand wide, don’t lose any weight really and just hammer elk.
I’ve got a pile of them for 30, 7mm, 270, 338 and they are excellent hunting bullets. The 160 and 175’s are really super in a fast 7mm.
Very impressive expansion. Hawk bullets often look like that, too. From the notes that came with the bullets, it appears that these wouldn't work too well in a 280 Remington with 1-in-9" twist. I don't know if they ever made 140- or 150-grain BBC's in 7mm diameter, but that probably would have been more appropriate for my rifle. It's probably a pipe dream to think I'd ever find any, though. Thanks all the same for the pictures.
