I have a Remington 700 in 7mm Rem Mag that I have been loading 150 gr Ballistic Tips at 3050 fps for about 20 years. I average harvesting 3-7 Whitetails a season with them, and for the most part, am very pleased with them. I have tower stands on power lines, huge clear-cuts and big agriculture fields. I never know when a deer is going to walk out at 30 yards or 500 yards. I've had numerous BT disintegrate at the 30-70 yard range, but still killed the deer. I've also experienced pass through at 400 yards with a clean kill. So after saying all that, I'll get to the main purpose of this post. I have just acquired a Remington Gen 1 Sendero in 7mm Rem Mag. I want to load for it and it will probably be the rifle I use in these tower stands in the future. My dilemma is, I don't want to load 150 gr BT (red tip) in this rifle because there is no doubt I would eventually get the bullets mixed up with the ones loaded for my other 7 mag. This Sendero has a longer barrel than my other 7 mag, so powder type/charge and seating depth will probably be different also. I really wanted to load the AccuBond (white tip) for the Sendero, but they don't make a 150 gr in it. I think shooting a 140 gr in a 7 Mag is defeating the purpose of shooting a magnum to begin with. I don't want to step up to the 160 gr AB because velocity suffers a little and recoil would increase. This leaves me the choice of AccuBond Long Range 150 grain. It has a gray tip so I would never get them mixed up with my other 7 mag bullets and its 150 gr like I want. Now, Nosler says there is no advantage to using the ABLR shooting less than 500 yards. I’ve read a lot of post in various forums where people claim the ABLR is a fragile bullet and would explode worse than the BT at close ranges. I want to load these 150 gr ABLR in my Sendero but am concerned of bullet performance at 30-200 yards, where I frequently get shots. The ABLR is a bonded bullet unlike the BT, so I would like to think that the ABLR would still be a decent bullet in the wide range of distances that I shoot Whitetails. I have also read that these ABLR like a lot of jump, with some people seating them .075" to .125" away from the rifling. I currently seat my BT at .030" and get sub MOA accuracy with them. I read somewhere that John Porter is suppose to be an "expert" on these ABLR but I can't find of a way to communicate with him. Do any of you have a lot of actual game taking experience with these bullets, if so I would love to hear your opinions or experiences with these ABLR bullets. Thanks for your time.
