Im a bit out of step. I use 120 grn Nosler BT out of an 18" barrel @ 3k. They are devastating out to the 500 yards I've used them.

I like the 120 bts too. 2800 fps out of a 16 inch barrel. Shot a few reds with this load and as good as anything I've tried.

Nosler 140 BTs all day long. Nothing you can't knock down with them out to 500 yards. If you want something heavier try the new 162 EDL-X projectiles from hornady. I'm doing a load for them at the moment for something to do and they are going alright.

Try the 162 eld match or X guys. Great bc and awesome performance at 7mm velocity.
