7 mm/.284 Caliber (.284) 160 gr. HPBT
The 160 grain #1925 Hollow Point Boat Tail is a true magnum bullet, being somewhat "tougher" than the #1920 for deeper penetration. Contrary to a usual assumption, this hollow point bullet is not particularly fragile. The nose opening is closed slightly to help retard initial upset, but even expansion is assured by four skives cut into the jacket. Of course, there is no exposed lead to be deformed in the magazine. The result is an excellent bullet for many big game applications.
The 160 grain #1925 bullet is far too "hard" for hunting with a handgun. This bullet can be used in all 7mm cartridges for silhouettes and target shooting.
The #1925 was introduced in 1988.

|I have found this bullet to deliver superior performance in three different 7mm Weatherby Magnum rifles. Three-shot groups in the 0.40s are routine with the Accumark, and the sporters both average about 3/4ths of an inch. Weatherby uses a 10-inch twist for its 7mm, which somewhat limits bullet choices compared to faster twists. Initially, I expected considerably more drop because of the relatively modest b.c. On paper and in the field at extended ranges, that doesn't seem to happen. There's entirely too much blather about ballistic coefficient these days. Stay moderate for best all-around performance. This bullet is a winner!|
