    I've whacked a whole lot of deer, one elk and one moose with the Speer 160 @ a nudge over 3k from my seven mag and more deer at around 2500 from 7x57 and 2700 from a couple of 284's. Yeah, I like it a lot, but game hate it. You're in fat city, I think.

    Yes I am BrownBear and for more reasons than having a lot of my favorite hunting bullet for my 7mm08 but the fact this Nosler M48 is a real for sure shooter. Here are two 20 round groups with the 120gr BT and the 150gr BT

    Here is a 20 shot group with 120gr Ballistic tips

    I love my M48..it looks like you're set with yours.

    Not much you won't be able to do with that.

    Yes, I believe you are right about that. The 160gr really works well on game. The 160gr Speer dropped a buck this year at 145yds right in his tracks, he actually leaned and fell backwards after being hit with this load and laid there dead.

    I was above him so there was a slight angle downward
