    Hello everyone. A buddy of mine told me I can use his equipment if I buy a die set for my 7mm wsm.
    I'm wanting to do this, but need some bullet advise.
    I'm wanting a accurate bullet with controlled expansion for whitetails. I was thinking Swift Scirocco II's? Im currently shooting Federal Premium Trophy Bonded Tip and really like them. Any suggestions?

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    If you like Swift Sciroccos, then use them. Federal bullets would be fine as well. I can't predict though what bullets will shoot the best in your gun and a lot more goes into an accurate load than just the bullet.

    By the way, I've shot deer with a 204 Ruger, a 222, a 22-250, a 270 Winchester, a 30/06, a 300 Win. Mag., etc. and they all looked the same; dead. My main criteria was accuracy so I ended up with such offerings as 45 grain Hornady Spire Points, 70 grain Speer Semi-Spitzers, 130 gr. Remington Core-Lokts, etc. Do you see any "premium" bullets listed? Not really and they all worked just fine and delivered fine accuracy.

    Grumulkin's correct.

    Each gun is different & the bullet is only one part of reloading.
    There's LOTS of things that can make an accurate or inaccurate round.

    Start slow & work up a load

    Good luck!
