    Default Speer Mag Tips

    Anyone have any experience with these bullets? I was given a box of 7mm 175gr. and am working up some loads for my 7mmRM. So far, the Tikka is liking 61.5 gr. of RL22, not crazy fast, but solid. I have never hunted with the Mag Tips, but they look like they would make a good Moose round.

    I think the Speer MT is a lil bit tougher than the Hot Cor. And, they have a protected point.

    The problem is, they've been discontinued, so don't wast'em.

    I have some 160 gr MT 7mm bullets. I use them for my 280 Rem Hunting load, but never bagged anything with them.

    I've loaded them, the 160s, in my 7mm RM, too, but never hunted with them.

    I'm no expert, of course, but I would consider the 175s in a 7 Mag to be a good choice for Moose.

    Perform just like the 175 Speer grand slam ........the mag tip was discontinued because it was cheaper than Grand Slams and performed the same.
