Looking for some ammo advice for my Model 70 in 7mm wsm.
The only round I have ever shot out of it has been the 140 gr. Win ballistic silver tip. Most shots on deer are pass through, but there have been a few that didn't exit. I've never lost a deer, but don't want to leave anything to chance if I don't have to.

Here are a few options I am debating... if you have any other suggestions let me know.

Federal Trophy Bonded 160 gr

Federal Trophy Bonded 140 gr

Winchester Accubond 160 gr

Winchester Accubond 140 gr

Accubond. Whichever weight shoots best out of your rifle.

If your gun will group with them, I cannot imagine any scenario where the 140 grain Accubonds would not satisfy you. I shoot them in my .270 WSM and they are deadly accurate and devastating on deer. Best of luck with your choice.

Accubonds. Buy a box of each weight and see which one groups best.
