    what is your favorite bullet to deer hunt with. In terms of reloading what bullet? I have been shooting a Nosler Accubond and like them a lot

    I like those Accubonds very much. I don't hand load cause I don't shoot much anymore. I buy a box every 2-3 years and it does me fine.

    Don't overlook the Sierra Pro-Hunter flatbased bullets, either! Some rifles like the flat-based bullets better (mine do!)

    Usually the only bullets i load are noslers, I am going to try the hornady interbonds next year. Has anybody used these or the nosler E-tip?

    My favorite load so far in my 7mm STW is 75 gr of IMR 7828, 140 gr accubond

    Both of the 7mm Mags I had liked 'em, too! Darn good-shooting bullets. The Sendero gobbled 'em up like candy.

    Cast....whether bullet or round ball. As macon said..."if it ain't broke, don't fix it".

    I've shot a bunch of Sierra and Hornady bullets over the years and have yet to find anything to complain about for deer size game. A few Speer and Nosler bullets get mixed in here and there and as of late some Barnes TSX bullets are in a few recipes. I haven't shot anything with a factory load in many years but the Core-Lokt and Power Point always performed well. Put a decent bullet in the right place and deer aren't that hard to kill.

    hornady SST i love hornady bullets. i have shot the seirra out of about every gun i own bu have not had any luck with them for some reason shot a small deer with them last year at 200 yards and did not even brake the off side ribs, let alone go all the way throw the deer.

    hmmmmmmmmmm sixkiller never heard nothing bad about a sierra like that, i usually hear stories like that when people are talkn about hornady bullets, sounds like someone fouled up loading that bullet
