Re: 7mm rem mag help

I have been using hornady 139 grain boatails for years. Absolutely devastating to deer. Sighted in at 1" high at 100 yards.

140 grain Nosler partitions for the last 40 years...you do your job and this bullet will without question always under all conditions do it's...I've never heard of anyone who actually hit the deer have the bullet fail..

120's to 140's are deer poison, shoot much flatter than most guys ability, and give you a clothesline trajectory. Nothing wrong with heavier bullets, just not necessary for whitetails.

Re: 7mm rem mag help

second the 140 grain hornady. 120 grain ballistic tips are also rumored to be good

Re: 7mm rem mag help

I have always shot 145 g speer hot cores over 62 g of IMR 4350, over 3100 fps. Most deer never take a step and shot thru a bear this year, in the bridge of the nose and out the top of the hip, never even kicked once.

Hornady 139 interlock boat tails get's my vote for woods hunting
Used 168 Sierra's for long range hunting.

Re: 7mm rem mag help

Hornady 139gr Interlok flat base bullets and IMR 4831 powder has always worked well for me. 1" high at 100yds.
