A friend of mine is just getting into handloading and he was given 100, 150 gr. Winchester fail safe bullets for his 7mm Rem Mag. I am going to be helping him building his load but I have no idea if these bullets are accurate or not or even if they work well on game. Anyone ever use them?

I had a box of 270 wsm that shot fine, I only remember taking one deer with them before I traded off the rifle.

I think they were designed with tough animals in mind (Africa).

I used to use them in .270. Was a very good bullet for larger game like elk. Took quite a few elk with them and a few deer. I don’t believe it’s produced an longer. Was certainly accurate enough

I also used them in a .270 in the 90's. I took a fair number of elk with them, and they worked very well. I was bummed when Winchester stopped making that loaded ammo.

They penetrate well. They don’t expand well at low impact velocities.

They’re an interesting design. Like a Barnes X up front and a Nosler partition in the back.
