Over the counter ammo for 7mm Mag

Just trying to see what some of you are using in your 7mm Mag rifles. I don't reload, so let's not go there at all. Target game is whitetail.

Wishing I was at camp!

For me the Federal Premium Nosler Partitions 160 gr. I've harvested Elk, Mule Deer, Black Bear, and Whitetail with that brand and bullet so there is no reason why I should change!

The short (but possibly more expensive) answer is to try various types of ammo and see what shoots best in your rifle. I don't know of too much mass produced 7mm Mag ammo that isn't capable of killing a whitetail.

Hornady SST 154 Grain
Same hole groups out of my older WB Vanguard Rifle.
Devastating on game.

I'm fortunate that I purchased a Browning with the BOSS System . It'll shoot whatever I feed it . I can't believe that the system never really caught on with other rifle manufacturers .

Why don't you just go to Midways site ,go to ammunition section and look at how people rate all the different brands and so on ?
This is better odds to figure it out than listening what people will tell you on sites !

The best off-the-shelf ammo for whitetails is the cheapest stuff that shoots acceptably well in your rifle.


Whitetails die pretty easily. Not much of any real issues of bullet choice at all.
