7mm-300win thoughts

Hello to all. I posted in a previous post about the 7mm lrm but after talking to a gentleman I'm gonna go with the 7mm-.300win. I'm gonna be shooting the 168gr berger with a 28" Broughton barrel. I would like some others thoughts on this cartridge and yalls likes about it.

Read every single post in this thread and the ones that are linked to it. Should answer any and all questions you have about it.

Anyone own a 7mm 300 Win Mag?

Happy Hunting

If you're only planning on shooting the 168 Berger VLD bullets, then you should just go with a straight 7mm RemMag... Mine pushes them 3,115 MV out of a 26" barrel. That should be more than enough for just about anything.

If you were planning on shooting the 180-class bullets, then I'd say step up to the 7mm-300 WM, 7mm STW, or 7mm LRM.

If you're only gonna shoot 160-class bullets, then I'd say you're only wasting money and time by buying and necking-down 300WM brass. Just go with the regular tried and true 7mm RemMag.

Re: 7mm-300win thoughts

Love mine. 180's at 3120ish from a 27 inch 9 twist tube.
I used a separate throating die so as to be able to have the bullet still in the case neck when it touches the rifling. Helps keep the bullet aligned and let's me chase the lands as the throat erodes and still have lots bullet in the case neck. I thought it may keep the velocity down from having very little free bore and hence higher pressure but it seems to be fine. I use nosler brass and I have found no need to fire form the brass as newly necked down brass shoots the same as once fired.

Built on a trued and sleeved rem 700 bdl allows plenty of room in the mag.

Re: 7mm-300win thoughts

I know I am in the minority here but my favorite 7's are the:

.284 - Throated long for the 180's it's an easy 2975-3000fps gun an has an EXCELLENT case that is proven to be one of the most accurate out there.

7SAUM - Also Throated long 180's can be pushed to 3150 pretty easy and it's just so darn efficient. If you need more than this don't waist your time with a 7 go to a big 30 and end it.

No take into consideration this is just my opinion and I shoot all 28" and longer barrels and shoot everything as a single shot.
