7 mag vs 7x64

Greetings from Scandinavia, Denmark!
- and thanks for an interesting and educating site.

Im thinking of buying a 7 mag or 7x64(preferably the last mentionned). Could anybody please enlighten me: whats the practical difference between the two?(its mainly going to be used for deer and wild boar).

Thanks and greetings from Flemming, Denmark

hi valhalla
7x64 great round,good mag capacity,no belted cases
vhitavouri manual has listed load for 160 g nos partition at 2900fps, not far behind the rem mag, ive been shooting mine for 3 years now truly excellent round i run a swift scirroco 150g at 2950 fps kills very efficiantly!

Hi Scirrocco,
and thanks for sharing your knowledge.
When getting my 7x64 next week Ill try the load you mentioned. Could you spare the time telling me whats the recoil like in the 7x64(some years ago I used to shoot the "7 mag" having no problems with the recoil)?

Again: thanks for your time and effort.

Flemming

Re: 7 mag vs 7x64

hi valhalla
recoil can be sharpish ,though not quite as bad as a 7 mag.
the load i use is ,,rws cases ,58 grains vit n160,fed 210m primers, i just seat my bullets level with the bottom of the case neck, my rifle is freebored which i think is standard with 7x64 my rifle is a sako very accurate.
what rifle are you buying?
i shoot a lot of fallow deer ,roe deer ,muntjac and use it for boar also would not change it .
if i can help you any more pm me
regards scirroco

Re: 7 mag vs 7x64

Greetings again, Scirocco!
Once again: thank you.
Ill be changing only the barrel, since I own a Sauer 200(changing barrel is very easily done). My second caliber(barrel) is 30.06 - also a superb caliber, but a little too big for roe deer, which by the way is the typical deer I hunt.
In a two weeks time Im going to Sweden for the opening season to shoot roe buck(well at least I hope so!) with my new and before metioned caliber - 7x64.

What, where and when will you be hunting?

Kind regards
Flemming
