I have killed deer with my 7-30 and want to know if I could use it on bigger game with a 140 grain bullet out to 150 yards or so.

7-30 for Caribu

With the 140gr. bullet, you should have no problems at all. That bullet can be loaded up to over 2200fps. and well over 1500ft.lbs of energy. Even at 150yds., it will still retain close to 2000fps. and over 1200ft.lbs. of energy. Sighted in at 100 yards, bullet drop should be around 2-2 1/2 inches at 150 yards. Just remember, hit'em where they live. Put one of these bullets through the boiler room, and all you have to do is figure out which wall to hang the rack on. Good luck. If you have never hunted Caribu befor, take lots of film. The scenery up there is beyond discription.
