All,

I'm looking for projectile advice for the above rifle.

Thanks in advance!

Midway is selling factory seconds right now, so you should be able to get a supply.

I'm in Australia and am doing custom loads. :)

Trust me, if I can bring a suitcase of brass back with me on my next trip I will!

Assuming Sierra bullets are available in your part of the world choose these. The 130 gr. MK for chickens and pigs. The 150 gr. MK for turkeys. And the 168 gr. MK for rams. Why the 150 instead of the 130 for turkeys ? Half the wind drift of the lighter bullet. I load all three to approximately 2550-2625 FPS MV.

Bob is the goo roo when it comes to the 7-08. Too bad he doesn't shoot a good 6.5mm. ^#(^

So true. The magic info that Bob put in here is the velocity. It seems that seirra's and even lapua's will go poof on impact if you get them screaming down range. You need to transfer that energy to the targets so that they fall over!
