I’m using the 139 interlocks this year and like most bullets, it kills them dead. I don’t have problems with bullets though, never have. Remington ammo is the only ammo I won’t use.

I reload for Pam’s Browning A-Bolt 7mm08
139 gn SST
39.2 gn of Varget powder

I make sure the cases are trimmed correctly and OAL
Is the same.

If she does her part the combination will shoot
1/2 “ MOA.

She shoots them behind the shoulder for a enter/exit hole.
Probably only lost 2 out of the last 50, she admitted to a rushed/bad shot.
When you get to the bottom of it all, arrows, slugs, bullets, placed in the right place, will harvest an animal.

Thanks for the input guys. My buddy has one and said about the same. Says he hasn’t found any that his didn’t like. Shoots them all really well.

My buddy’s wife shot a doe yesterday evening with 120 grain Barnes ttsx it dropped in its tracks but when he got up there to load it up he realized there was a blood trail leading off the hill and there laid another doe! Bullet passed through the first and was just up under the skin on the opposite side of second one! Pretty impressed with the round needlessly to say!

I shoot 139 grain Barnes LRX over 49 grains of Ramshot Big Game in mine but if I was using factory ammunition it would be either 120’or 140 TTSX. Whichever the rifle liked best. Light for caliber is just fine and even better than fine when they retain 95% of their weight after impact.

I'm shooting the Sierra 120 pro hunter in my extreme weather 7mm-08 over 39.5 grains of IMR4064. Haven't got to shoot anything with them yet but hoping they will perform well.
