  • What's the preferred grain bullet for a 7mm Rem Mag for Eastern Washington Mule Deer? I prefer Federal Fusion. I used to use 165

    What's the preferred grain bullet for a 7mm Rem Mag for Eastern Washington Mule Deer? I prefer Federal Fusion. I used to use 165 grain but I can't find any, 150 seems to be everywhere or jump up to 175. Any input is greatly appreciated.

    Lived and hunted muleys around Yakima, Selah and Prosser. 150 will drop an average sized Washington Muley. If you hunt elevation deer, say Washington Pass near the Pacific Crest Trail, they tend to be larger and your blood trail will be longer with 150gr. as they won't anchor when vitals are hit.

    Keep lookin' for 165...

      Long slide w optic cut would cool, but for more general, might go Gov model.
      May just start w a Ruger 1911.
