Re: bullet for 7mm08
120 grain bullets are perfect out of the 7mm-08, I've been using ballistic tips the past few years, though I want to try Barnes TTSX's. The 120 grain Ballistic Tips actually have a thicker jacket on them than other hunting weight BT's, so they are perfect for deer.
If I had to pick one hunting load, it'd be 43-44 grain of RL15 and a 120 grain TTSX. Otherwise I'd probably go with RL19 and a 140 grain Accubond or Partition.
