    Had what i would call a failure many years back with the 150 gr BT before they beefed the jackets up. Have used various Noslar bullets since and all have worked well. The 180 gr BT in the 300 WM and 30 06 are fine performers on game.

    All other animals seem to go straight through,

    Looking forward to try these out on some animals. With the range closed here atm is hard to get any data worked up.
    These worked well in my SAUM on red deer, again don't have the flash harry BC but they worked. I had a bad run with the 143ELDx on animals at ranges less than 100 m.
    SAUM is now relagated to Gongs only so BC is king and Bullet performance on the target not so important

    I have started using the 155 Gn nosler custom in .308 for target shooting. supposed to be good for the "short" ranges out to 800 yds but then lose perfomance to the likes of berger at 1000yds.
    Time will tell, our range only goes to 600 so it wil be a great practice round.

    In my .260 I tried 125 partitions and also their BT, I just couldnt get them to group. No matter what I tried I couldnt get under 1.75 MOA
    Went to the 120 Amax and drove it to high speed ....it kills well

    Used the 150 partiton in my .270's and it was always a great killer and good accuracy. Been through 3 .270's they all liked them!

    I wouldn't use 7mm 150grn BT on anything big from my experience. Gone old school to 160grn sierra game kings. Heaps cheaper, accurate and consistent kills on big and small deer etc.

    I thought that from the beginning.. But since using them I've had no complaints.

    what I find sad/hilarious/contrary about this thinking.....is often same people saying it will use an ELD-X ELD-M AMax in same role

    any and all of them will work just fine n dandy when you take time to understand the strengths n weaknesses of projectile design....which pretty much sums up game shooting full stop.

    Not my best effort but a yearling from the other day. The good old Texas heart shot. Entered above the tail. Cleaved the spine snapping it eventually. Once entering the gut area made jelly of everything through the chest cavity. Didn’t even damage the back straps. 140 gn BT

    If they don't work out on your CM @Reindeer PM me and I'll take them off your hands
