Which 7MM for long range hunting?

I watch that best of the west and am hooked. I know I want to use a 168 berger, but which 7mm do I get.

Thanks

Remington 700 in 7mm RUM. Yes, of course I have one!

Re: Which 7MM for long range hunting?

For us to give you a fair assessment, we need a little more info. Are you thinking about a 6 lb rifle? 8lb? 11 lb? 14 lb?

What is the range you want to shoot? 500 yds? 800 yds? 1500 yds?

My first belted mag was a 7mm Rem Mag. I have found this rifle to be very easy to load for.

Dont they use a standard 7mm rem mag on that show? I really enjoy that show.

I just purchased a 7mm ultra mag. I have been thinking the same thing. I think I am going to send mine to Jim at Center Shot and make it a better 7mm Ultra Mag. If I get mine built up I am going to keep it a sporter style for shooting 500 yards or less. It will be my Northern WI and MN hunting gun. For hunting in the woods and some clear cuts. I have a 2.5-10x42 Swaro to put on it.

What are you going to do? Long range? Woodland hunting?

You need to understand good marketing, good film editing, and quite a few other things before you let BS on a TV show influence your opinion. I am trying to help you. Go get more information before you make a decision.

If needed I want to be able to shoot an elk at 750 yards. ( most likely never will)

Basically I want it to work like they do on TV.

Thanks
