i just got a new x-bolt 7mm wsm and would like some recommendations as to what loads i should reload for it for hunting elk, i plan on using a 160 grain bullet in accubond, and tsx, but will also be trying 154 grain interbond, as well as 150 grain e-tip and ttsx. i have never reloaded but my father has and he already has all the equip, all i neet to do is get the brass, bullets, and die set.

Any of the bullets you've listed would be fine for elk.  It's just a matter of what shoots well out or your gun.  I've always used Winchester brass and RCBS dies, but whatever brand is available will work.

All the bullets listed should work fine for elk, have fun reloading. Be careful, reloading can become very addictive. Big Smile

I like Barnes bullets and they should work well. They are long for their weight, so you need to watch  what powders you use. I try to avoid powders that have to be compressed a lot. I use Reloader 22 powder and that works well. Barnes bullets like clean barrels to shoot well. Good luck.Smile

I am going to try imr4350 with win brass and primers since my dad already has that stuff, i am pretty sure that will work fine since i have seen people recommend it, now all i got to do is get my rcbs dies, brass and bullets from ups and i will be off and loading.

Barnes have performed well on elk for me.  Don't overlook the Berger VLD Hunting series, they are easy to get to shoot, have high BCs, and good terminal ballistics.
