    Actually, that's not quite correct. The jacket for the 120 gr. BT is the same as the 140 gr. BT, just trimmed back to be the proper length for the 120 gr. bullet. It's only thicker for that reason. Section a 120 gr. bullet and a140 gr. bullet and you can see they're the same except for length. So, yes they're the same yet they're not the same.

    Our forefathers did not politely protest the British.They did not vote them out of office, nor did they impeach the king,march on the capitol or ask permission for their rights. ----------------They just shot them.

    120 gr nosler BT with a heavy dose of varget is a sure killer out of my remington model 700 in 7mm08.

    140 gr Sierra Gameking over 44gr IMR4350 shoots very consistent .2-.3 (3 shot [email protected] 100) in my x7. 1" entrance 2" exit and blood trails that are EASILY seen. 2550 fps 18" barrel. 48 gr is also very accurate & about 2850 fps in my gun. It is a compressed load.

    Although I’ve had excellent performance from the Sierra and Nosler bullets, and IMR4350, several years ago I bought a significant quantity of Hornady 139gr BTSP Interlock blems. Over 47.0gr of Reloader17 I get 3,000fps an$ as good of accuracy as Rifle is capable of.
    However, the rifles favored load is a 150gr bullet over 45.0gr of H4350 or Reloader17 for 2,800+FPS.
    Ive had both 120gr and 150gr Nosler Bt’s separate and fail to penetrate. But, deer do die quickly.
    In GOD we trust: all others are "suspects"!
