    How about all the reloaders out there, whats your favorite caliber and bullet combo for whitetail?

    My reloading book is up at my hunting camp, so I can't give you the exact amount of RL-15 powder in my 7mm-08 load, but it's pushing a 120 gr. Barnes TTSX, Rem. brass and Win. primer.

      Pineywoods, how do the TTSX bullets do on deer? I have been thinking of trying them I use nosler Accubonds now.

        You would have a hard time making me switch back to anything else. They open quickly, make a large wound channel and a fine exit wound to track those deer that don't drop right there. No lead fragments in the burger, either. They are worth the extra expense.

          I stoped re-loading a long time ago, I use Hornady
          139gr/SST/LM...in my 7mm/08.Rem M/7 Compc 18"Bbl
          the deer in my Food plot are 80yd out,when hit thay drop like a Bag full of 10#Hammers..Factory Ammo goes Bang every time for that HUNT(BUCK) of a life time. Re-loading is fun for a range gun,JMO re-loads have No place in the Deer Woods!

            150 grain Hornady SST reloads in my 30-06 or a 120 grain Sierra for my 264 Win Mag. Treestand, in over 30 years I have never had a reload fail me and I have never shot a deer with a factory load.

              I have no idea why you feel that re-loads have no place in the Deer Woods. My 165 gr. Sierra boat tails have worked everytime on elk.

                  I have never had a re-load fail me once, and i have shot plenty of them. I have however had a factory load fail.
