7MM WSM for Moose Hunting

7mm WSM for Moose
What bullet weight/type do you recommend for 7MM WSM for moose? I will be reloading.
I would recommend using a 130 grain weight bullet for your WSM.
130's usually shoot well from any 7mm, magnum or not and are very accurate too.
As for bullet types there are many to choose from, but as of late I am leaning towards a solid copper bullet like a Barnes TSX or Barnes TTSX.
The difference between the two is the polymer tip. The TSX is a hollow point and the TTSX has a polymer tip, similar to the Partition Balistic tip.
You might want to try both types and see which one performs best from your rifle.
I have gone away from recommending any bullets with lead in them anymore. Why?
The main reason is health.
We are wanting to harvest moose (and other game) so we can eat natural meat. Untainted with chemicals and unhealthy matter.
Any bullet with lead content will fragment. Even if it is microscopic in size. We will ingest those bits of lead.
And we all know about lead poisoning.
Realistically though, do we need to fear lead poisoning from ingesting a few lead fragments?
But, I have chosen not to, and therefore I recommend not to have any chance of having them in my food.Now that being said
, up until now I have had very good success using Nosler partions bullets.
