Hello I just purchased a beautiful remington 7600 that I intend to use as my everywere deer rifle. Now I need to settle on a hunting bullet that will shoot within point of aim out to 200 yds and yet offer good terminal performance.
So far all I've shot are some remington 200gr rn bullets over 57 grains of bl-c(2) a very good load for making 10' fireballs in low light.

Anyway what bullets and loads have worked for you guys and what kind of accuracy are ya'll gettin.

That bullet is designed for the little .35 Remington and will be too soft for max loads in the Whelen. The round nosed shape will also hurt long range performance. Better to use the Remington 200-grain pointed CoreLokt, the Hornady 200 spire point, the Speer 220 fp, etc. These bullets will perform better an any range and are well suited to use on deer and black bear.

My M7600 is in .338-06 and I get 1.5 moa for five-shot groups with hunting loads. Accuracy loads will do a bit better. All are ample for a big game hunting rifle.
