    Used Woodleigh Weldcore and Hornady 175 gn Roundnose both not
    sexy and sleek but both emphatic killers on large game always said
    the tail doesn’t even touch. In both 7mm Mag,7mm-08 and my favourite 7x61.

    Thanks fellas, some good info there but the problem with going heavy like 175gr or over 162gr with the good projectiles is my twist rate is 1-9.5 and stabilizing heavier would be somewhat of a problem, i could stabilize 168gr bergers but they aren't the ones i want i have come across some 154gr Interlocks and some 154gr Interbond, what's your thoughts on them and which one would be your pick for what i want , long piece of string i know but they were cheap

    I like the 154 gr interbonds and have shot a few game with them, none recovered, the interlocks are fine cup and core bullets, and half the price of bonded, they work ok, but if shooting think skinned game I choice the bonded bullet, deer wont matter, except samber up close, but I would shoot cattle, bear's, buffalo, moose with bonded.

    I tried the 175 gr Noslar LRAB in my 7mm Mag which is a Tikka 695 with a standard Tikka T3 barrel, it shoots them pretty good as does the 162 gr ELDX. If you could get a sample pack of them to try it may be worthwhile.

    A 175Gr Nosler Partition is shorter than any of the ELD / VLD type 160gr+ bullets so will stabilize fine in a 9.5 twist barrel

    Perhaps not so good at smokeless speeds though.
    Overkill is still dead.
