Hello all. I'm new to THR and am hoping someone can help me out. I am looking for a source of 7x57 RN FMJ 173gr bullets to load. Hey, they were good enough for Bell and Corbett, they are good enough for me. Any ideas?

Don't know of anyone who sells a ultra heavy FMJ component bullet but that would be fun.

Any 7 mm bullet will work and 175 gr. are available although I don't load them that heavy myself.

A 140 gr. Nosler Partition in front of 50 gr. of IMR 4350 served me well for over 30 years including a 2 week plains game hunt in Africa.

It's a curiosity/nostalgia thing. I would never use them on game, just fun. I will be taking my Ruger #1 in 7x57 to Africa in July and Nosler Partitions are on the menu.

Sierra used to make a 170gr RN. I found a box several years ago gathering dust on a shop shelf with a 15yr old price.... ($7). They came home with me.

They shoot excellent through my 7mm08.

Like others posted, most of the blunt/heavy bullets are gone. I'd just load up some 175gr of the cheapest variety you can find.

You can even run some of the cast bullets to ~2,200fps w/o leading, so, you might look there.
