I am going to use my Light Colt in 7mm Remington Mag for deer hunting in PWS this fall. I will be loading my own rounds, and was wondering what would be a good bullet weight for deer. The charts go from 120 gr to 175 gr. Lyman recommends 160-175 gr for bigger game, naming elk in particular.
I'm relatively new to reloading, and not the most ballistically informed, so was thinking that a lighter bullet/higher velocity would be more appropriate. Am I on the right track?
Thanks for your input.
