Funny you should ask...I just started using it this year. Bought a new kimber 7mm-08 and tokk out 3 different boxes of ammo to see which it likes best. The three were Federal Vital Shok 140Grain Nosler Partitions, Remington Corlokt 140Gr express and Hornady Light Magnum 140Grain sp's. The gun most definitley likes the Hornady light mags and shot the tightest groups with them. Interestingly, thye Hornady's are the only 7mm-08 factory loads that are advertised to shoot at 3,000 FPS. I am sold on them and will not change. I sure wasnt impressed with the way the Federals performed and I thought they would be the best. In order, the gun liked the Hornady's, Corlokts and federals
I started using Hornady ammo about 10 years ago and now prefer it over all other brands. In my .30-06 their 150 grain light magnums are perfect for deer and antelope. Their 180 grain light magnums are what I use for elk (when I'm not hunting with my muzzleloader).
Hinge-cutting serves several purposes in regard to improving both whitetail habitat and your hunting experience. There are two main types of hinge cuts including a cut for screening and funnels and a cut for bedding. Hinge cuts for screening and funnels should be done somewhere between the knee and waist to block a deer's vision as well as block a travel path. Hinge cuts for bedding should be done around chest high so that there is room for a deer to bed underneath.
