I'm going out of state to rifle hunt deer this fall and just ordered a Tikka T3 Lite in 7mm-08. I'll be tree stand hunting in Wisconsin in the timber so most shots will be under 100 yards....probably well under. Of course, the occasional longer shot may present itself across a field. I'll be buying Lapua brass and have several powder choices on hand. I'm really looking for bullet suggestions here. We only shotgun slug hunt and/or muzzleloader hunt here, so the slugs are big and slow. I shot two does last year with a 300gr Harvester out of my muzzleloader and both were DRT. The 7mm-08 is a different game for me and bullet weights seem to range from 120gr to 165ish grain. Right around 140gr or so seems to be the most popular bullet weight for this round. I'd like a bullet that expands reliably and retains as much weight as possible. I prefer complete pass through shots simply for the blood trail if necessary. I've ready that a lot of hunters like the bullets that explode or fragment but don't penetrate the hide on the other side. Perhaps there is logic to this as well with more energy being delivered to the vitals with more massive damage being done? Anyway....the T3 has a 9.5" twist. I think it can handle the bullets up around 160gr ok, but my gut says something around 140-150 is in the wheel house for it. Please tell me what bullets I should consider and your experience with them. Right now I'm leaning heavily towards simple bonded bullets (Scirroco, Interbond, Accubond, etc) but these seem to be the hardest to find.....perhaps for good reason.
