This topic has likely been covered but I'm new to the site and can not find it. Please humor me. Your help would be greatly appresiated.

I prefer balistic tips for whitetails so I bought some 7x65R Norma Strike Tip 160GR for my Sauer combo. Its a 50's gun. Best "groups" at 100 yards were 6". Shot some Sellier & Bellot and three shot groups are maximum of an inch. On this gun I realize I'm likely religated to the S&B.

Picked up a Kriegoff 7x57 / 22 Hornet last week. I tried Nosler 140 AccuBond in the 7x57. It groups right at an inch; however, its 10" high and 5" right. Thats an easy fix.....BUT.....the Hornet is deadly acurate at 100 yards. My concern is that if I ran S&B thru it as is (with no adjustments) it might also be balls on.

Have you all been having these types of issues with the more modern ammunition?

My drilling 7x57R really likes the PPV 139 gr SP, S&B 173's double the size of the group which would still be adequate.

My BRNO combo gun 12ga/5.6x52R much prefers 55gr Buffalo Arms .228 bullets over the S&B 70gr again about half the size group.
