    Arrow 7mm Rem Mag - 160 Grain Failsafe

    I just purchased a lifetime supply of Winchester's 7mm, 160 Failsafe bullets for reloading. They are the Lubalox coated bullets. I plan to utilize them for elk, bear, mulies and maybe someday a moose.

    Anyone have any reloading recipes for the 160 Failsafe? I'll be using a Remington, Model 700 BDL, 24" bbl. and a Ruger, Model 77, 24" bbl.

    I would also like to hear of any experiences with the 160 Failsafe in a 7mm Remington Magnum. Keeping in mind these projectiles are intended for larger game, has anyone tried them on whitetail deer?

    Well just find the charge that shoots most accuratly and keep em on hand at all times.

    I don't shoot that caliber but I have killed a few critter with fail safe bullets. They work just fine.

    For the 7mm's I have reloaded for to date, the Failsafes have not produced satisfactory accuracy. If your rifle shoots them well you should have no worries. They have a reputation for resulting in excellent penetration rivaling the Barnes.
