Default Favourite game bullet in the 7MM magnums?

Those of you running 7mm magnums of any flavour to hunt with. What is your favourite bullet and weight?

I flip flop every few years between the partition and accubond.

I really like the 160gr accubond in my 7mm mag. Very accurate and has always performed on game.

140gr TTSX, although my current 7mmstw prefers the 150gr TTSX.

Mine likes the 120gr TTSX. Nice velocity and flat shooting. Deer sized game.

Thinking I need a load for moose, 160gr Accubond or partition might get the nod.

160 NP has been my go to for years. Testing some 162 eldx over the summer based on how the 143's shot in my CM.

150 gr TTSX seem to be good medicine, they group better than 160s with my 7 rm.

The Hornady 162 ELD-X. 7 RM and 7 WSM. The accuracy is superb and everything dies.

Your 120gr TTSX load would do fine on moose.

My old Rem 700 ( you know it's a lefty, Chuck) loves the old Nosler solid base 162 gr but sadly these have not been available forever and I am down to my last box...
It shoots the 160 AB very well. Both have been deadly on larger game.

A more fragile bullet may give faster kills on deer size or smaller game.

I have not tried Barnes in this caliber but would expect 140 TTSX to be outstanding.

I really like the 160gr Federal Trophy Tip. However Accubond has always been in a tie.

140 TTSX shot very well and has accounted for several Elk and Deer in 280AI, 7X61 Sharpe and Hart ; 7MM Rem Mag and 7MM Weatherby Mags I owned. Penetration, accuracy and terminal performance were outstanding.

I just recently purchased my first 7mm magnum so I donít have any expirience with magnums.

My experience has been with 280ís both rem and aiís. The 140gr Barnes ttsx bullets performed good out to about 350yds then started to turn into pencil pokers. On deer out to 500yds the ballistic silvertips were absolute poison, Iíve only shot one elk with them and 2 moose and ithey had the same effect. Most of my bigger game like moose and elk I used either 140gr accubonds or 150gr long range accubonds.

Having a bit more powder capacity with the magnums Iíd imagine the performance range of the ttsx would stretch out another 100yds or so. Iíve got some Berger 168gr Hunting VLD bullets Iím hoping will prove to be killers because they sure are good at paper punching.
