I have a Remington 700 7mm rem mag, and 7mm-08, and I've always fired Remington Core-Lokt ammunition from both. Plenty of hunting success and accuracy on long range targets. Anyone out there have the same rifles, and experimented with any other ammo, that they really like? Just curious. I hunt primarily with the 7 mag. Also wondering... Has anyone tried the Core-Lokt "Whitetail Pro" ammo? What's the difference from the standard CL rounds?
I have had my Rem 700 7MM Mag for 38 years (since I was 10!) and when using factory loads have used 140 grain Corelokts with awesome results. When I was in my teens we shot the Remington 125 grain factory loads and loved them...can't find them since those days. Loaded some 139 grain Hornadys last year...will report the results...hopefully!
I mostly handload but when going to factory ammo for whitetail size game, I have started using the Federal Fusion ammo. I have found it to shoot very accurately across many calibers including the 7 mag and 7-08 (both of which mine are Rem 700's and the couple deer I have shot were instant kills with it. Fusion ammo is very well priced as well.
