The best bullet we found for the 7mag was the 140gr Nosler Partition. I think Federal loads it in factory ammo. With 160-175gr bullet we would just shoot pinholes thru game and lost to many. Others were shot with a different cartridge(like 30-06) and that is how we found out about the pinholes and lack of expansion. The 140 PAR have been very successful for deer/pigs and elk.
My 2 Cents

Perfect! Try multiple weights as well. Each will have different harmonics that can change accuracy.
Best of luck and keep us informed please.

I took my 7 SAUM to africa lat year. 160 gr Accubonds took down a lot of game. Used the 7mm RM the year before with the same results. The TTSX is another great bullet. The 168 gr. Bergers also work well on game taking them down with authority. Lots of good bullets. See what your rifle likes. Best of luck. Bruce

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...

Many thanks for re formatting my article for the forum

I served my time in both the bush and during the bush war

I hope it did it justice

Education is where it is at - without it the wild places are history

You - sir - are well placed to make a difference
