I just got a new Browning X-bolt 7mm WSM, and i am wanting some opinions on what factory loads i should get for it to hunt elk in north eastern Oregon. most of the good quality loaded ammo i can find are 160 grain and 1 at 150 grain.

I dont think Barnes makes a 7mm WSM factory load anyway. I would buy a few different boxes and see what shoots best from your rifle.

No, but Federal loads the 160gr TSX and Cor Bon loads the 140 TSX in factory 7 WSM ammo.
