    Whats a good 7mm bullet

    Am just starting to think about developing a load for my 7x65R. Does any body have any recomendations as to a good all round 7mm bullet in the 150 to 160gn weight. I would also like something that is generally readily available.

    I have heard good things about the Swift Scirroco bullets and the Nosler partition.

    Many thanks

    This answer won't be popular with the high tech fanatics but a superb bullet in the 7x57 and the 280 had been a plain Speer 145 grain SP Flat base. It worked well on elk from the 7x57. They are inexpensive and accurate. JMHO, of course...~Muir

    Hi Heym , Have you tried 162 grain A max, does a cracking job. Steve.

    Another vote for the inexpensive Speer SP. Use them in my 7x57r, and the combination of a relatively heavy bullet and moderate velocity seems to hit like the hammer of Thor!

    The other end of the scale from Wapiti - but the Roe just drop on the spot!

    I love my Drilling you know!

    However, the Barnes TSX has truly wonderful performance over a wide variety of range and velocity - if it shoots in your rifle that would be my premium recommendation. The high levels of retained weight would allow you to run a lighter bullet with a flatter trajectory- the controlled expansion creates adequate wound channels, without tending to detonate the stomach with hydrostatic trauma.

    I use a 7mm Remington Magnum and use three bullets depending on the species. I use 150g Sierra Gameking for all our deer in the uk, Nosler Partition/Accubond in 160g for African Animals, however for top accuracy the Gamekings are the business and all you need in this country.

    Hope this helps

    Im with you guy's on the Gamekings.

    I use them in my .25 - 7mm and 30cal and have never had any problems
