    7mm projectiles

    Hey team does anyone have any 150gr nosler BTs/140-162 soft points? Looking at some loads to try that might be more suitable up close in the bush than a 162eldm. Cheers

    Ive used 150gr Sierra gamekings as a shorter range load in my 7mm SAUM. They shoot and kill well.

    What cartridge are you using? 130 Barnes or similar might be the go?
    Experience. What you get just after you needed it.

    Seriously mate, you can't go wrong with the 150 SGK or 150 NBT. I've shot deer from 15 yards with both right out to 750 with the 150 nbt from a 22" 284. Either bullet will work mint.

    In my 17" 284 bushpig I just use the 162 Amax for e everything near or far. At only 2700 fps at the muzzle it's not too fast close up, and still sacks em several hundred yards out.

    Like @GWH - I solely use the Amax now, but I had a really great run using the 140gr BT. Never tried the 150gr version.

    Your 17" 284 impresses me. You could shoot a hell of a long way with a 162 Amax at 2700. Pretty cool for such a short rifle.
