The 139gr Hornady Interlock has worked well for me in my 7mm-08 but I just can't get the Accubonds to shoot to my satisfaction. I may have to try 120gr Ballistic Tips.
I prefer shoulder shots,do ya think the 120grBT will do well going thru bone? I'm sure it will but wanna from someone who has used them in the 7-08.

its funny how a 120 grain BT in .284 is thicker jacketed in a 165 gr .308 bullet. What's up with that?

If you can get the Barnes bullets to shoot well for you you can forget about velocity- they don't blow up and the wound channels they create are great. I am a die hard 7 mm shooter and have had nothing but success with the Barnes. I shoot them in my 7 mag, .284 Winchester and my son shoots a 7-08. We use the 150 XS.I recently shot five xs into a hole that measured .440 @ 100 yards out of my .284. Velocity is 2850.

You can get almost 3000 fps out of a barnes 140 gr in the 7-08 as well. Bullets will not blow up even at very close ranges.

I agree with CZ284 on the Barnes bullet. I recently culled a cow horned spike. Shot was 40-50 yards. The Federal with a 140TSX tore of the left atrium (chamber of heart), dropped a lung, and then partial lobe of liver and exited the lower flank with a hole less than the size of a quarter. Looking back at the site the other day, the deer maybe traveled 10 yards.

I will stick with these. I do not want anymore tissue damage than this, but will shoot ballistic tips on coyotes.
