Just wondering which ammo would be best for this gun,its the770 rem.
Currently using 180grain power-points,this will be the first year using this gun. Just want to see what ya'lls opinions are. Thanks!

I used the Federal Powershok in 7mm Mag. They dropped everything I shot with them. You can get them at the Dickson Walmart for $17.97 a box I believe. Same for the 7mm and 300 win mag. You can't beat them for the money. They come loaded with Speer bullets. 300mag are probably 180gr.

Yeah I thought the 180s were probably a bit overkill \:\) no pun intended
They came with the gun,will probably go to the150s

Some of the premeir bullets are pushing $60 a box.if I was elk hunting sure but deer are not that hard to kill with just about any centerfire.the smaller caliburs need premium but horsepower works also lol

I shot 180gr corelock and and never had a deer take a step. The enter and exit hole wasnt that bad unless the buller clips a limb and goes to tumbling then its one ugly hole
