Default Hornady 120 grain SP 7mm-08

I was thinking in trying the 120 grain SP bullet from Hornady in my 7mm-08
The reloading book states this round is for small game I can't see any reason why it wont work on deer .The bullet has a good B.C. and should reduce recoil compared to the 140 grain bullet

The bullet is a lightly contructed bullet designed for extra fast expansion on varmints...

Sure, it will kill a deer with a perfect shot, but it also might blow up and cause a superficial wound with a shoulder shot, and it certainly would be tough on eatin' meat...

Nothing wrong with using 120 grain bullets in the 7 MM 08for deer, but why not use a well constructed bullet designed for deer sized game in that caliber, like the Nosler ballistic tip or the Barnes TSX..??.. My 7mm08 Mountain rifle loves the Barnes 120 TSX, and I have been very happy with the performance on game...A buddy of mine has used the 120 Ballistic tip for years with similar good results..

Those are Nosler ballistic tips,not Hornady bullets.
