Be careful of moccasins if pine trees are around. Moccasins have smooth leather soles & act like skis on pine needles. You will spend time getting up off the ground! Trust me I've been there. They are quiet & comfortable though!
You got that right!!! Been there myself.

I LOVE my 7x57 its an Interarms MkX. It like the heavy bullets better. I have used the Sellior&Bellot 173gr factory ammo. Ive also used the Hornady 154gr soft-points with great success. Whitetail just collapse like you unplugged them. Fartherest "walk" was 10yds.

I've experimented with bullets from 139 Hornady 150 Gr RP CoreLoc and 175 gr Hornady RN. Something about that long bullet with all that lead on the nose just instills confidence. Ruger No.1A

Shot dozens of deer the the 7x57 and the 7x57ai, never lost one and none made it more then 30 yards, most are drt. I used to really like the 140 Sierra pro hunter but they got to pricy for my liking. So now on the hunt for a do all adorable bullet, thinking the 145 Speer will do I've always liked speers.

this year I may experiment, I have 175 noslor partitions and hornady 175 round nose loaded up. Same charged nothing to warm, think it's 42.0 imr 4350. Maybe around 2350-2400 fps have to see. Was surprised in my m77 ruger they shot to the same point of aim, even out to 300 I was smacking steel and there was no difference. One guy at the range was surprised how hard it seemed they were hitting the gongs.

those are two pretty different bullets and like to see what they different.

192 x 175gr RN Hornady to be used hunting range 200meter and closer
150 x 175gr Claw bonded bullets specials thanks to @Tally Ho Hunting Safaris for donating them to me thanks a bunch Stuart.
200 x S&B cases

So the Police just needs to do their work eventually and will get the 7x57 fired up.
