Bear with me, if you've seen my other posts you'll know I'm new to the big game hunting world. I'm starting to reload for my 7mm Rem Mag. By that I mean I have the dies, some brass, and some powder. A friend who no longer hunts dropped off two boxes of nosler 140 grain ballistic tip boat tail bullets.
I intend to use this gun for elk and mule deer, and possibly pigs. Big things in other words. Everything I've read on this board and others emphasizes the fact that on large animals you need penetration and a bullet that won't disintegrate upon hitting bone or tissue at high velocities. This to me sounds like Nosler Partition or Winchester Fail Safe territory. Makes perfect sense to me. Posters have written in describing ballistic tips hitting a shoulder blade or a rib and just disintegrating on contact.
So my question basically is what would be a useful hunting application for a 140 grain ballistic tip out of a 7mm? It's overkill for coyotes, and from what I read not designed for big game. So if you had 200 of these, how would you load them and what would you use them on? Thanks for reading.
