Re: 7mm Rem Mag

Actually I excelled at all aspects of academia on quite an excellerated level. I have no comprehension problems, I can assure you.

However, just for a little fun demonstration, I went back and edited my post so you can see what I was referring to.

You are saying that he has a choice. He chooses A. You think he should choose B. He chooses A, which he feels is best for him, and you do not agree with his choice. Which means, you think he has made the wrong choice...Correct? Ergo, you feel like you knew what was best for him.

Shall I continue with examples?

He made his choice!!! If you sir want to ramble about other calibers( calibers that I personally think are great) then that's your right! But don't try an (1)put words in my mouth(2)push or bully others into accepting what you think is right(3)just because the OP chose another caliber to his liking doesn't meen that its not the best round up to the yardage that he is gonna use it for!! Just because he made a differant choice other than yours, doesn't meen he's wrong!! Bottom Line!!!! Quit Pushing Yourself On Others!!!
You Sir, also have a reading comprehension problem. I am pushing my self on no one. The OP made a choice and I respect it as I have already said. It just wasn't within the parameters of the OP's question which mentioned nothing about recoil and muzzle brakes. If he feels he's better off without a muzzle brake for whatever reason, fine.

Good day

Guess everybody has a reading comprehension problem, according to you! I guess that's what people like you say to those that don't agree with you!! Kinda like a little boy in the sand box, if people don't play by your rules or have a differant opinion, then you want to kick sand, holler, an take your toys an go home! If someone makes a differant choice,so be it! The OP is askin for advice, not what You think he should have!

Show me one place where I said "what he should have", just one.

Like I said, reading comprehension

Re: 7mm Rem Mag

I'm just a NW FL boy with webbed toes. There is nothing in the SE USA that I can't quickly dispatch with a well placed shot from my 243.

I don't know the OP but if he is truley and seriously asking this question in earnest....NEITHER will be adequate for ALL N American big game animals.

He asked a question with only two possible answers; 7RM or 300WM. How come none of the famous LR folks on here didn't point out that there are so many variables that at times not even the 300 RUM would be adequate in the hands of skilled shooters.

For example, let's shoot a prarie goat at 1000 yards standing in a 10,000 acre "spot". He definately isn't a danger to you whether you completely miss or wound him and juss piss him off. Even if he came at you in a dead run how many shots could you get off at him before you could end his rabid charge? Probably about as many with a braked 338 Lapua as an unbraked 243. So in this instance, calibler is of very little significance.

Now, let's go caribou hunting up in Alaska. I've just dropped the new world record caribou with my 7RM and after much chest thumping my guide and I and 14 pack horses and 2 camera men are on our way to claim ,my new trophy and once again prove that the 7RM is more than adequate out to 1000 yards. Some where, any where, between the grassy knoll and where the trophy is down you happen to bump into another world record. Except this time it isn't a caribou, nor a moose but a huge, pissed off grizzly boar that has just been awakend from his sleep by a loud noise and now choking on the stinch of human. He gives no warning, just the woof woof and then in an instance he is about to pop your skull. Your guide has a 10 guage with slugs in it and quickly raises it to shoot the bear and save your trophy shootin life......Mr. Guns and Ammo staff writer....... but the factory rep that has accompanied (paid for your whole adventure) you says WAIT! The camera is running, we can't shoot this bear with anything other than our 7RM.

POP ! ! !

Re: 7mm Rem Mag

[QUOTE=Outlaw6.0;777092]The OP, being a novice shooter, is NOT John Burns.... hell why stop there? Lets give German Salazar a call... or better yet, lets call David Tubb. You sir are comparing apples to oranges.

What does that have to do with anything? Are you saying that the laws of internal performance to do not apply to John because he is such a good shooter he can hit his mark? The OP is a novice and worried about recoil that is the whole point of going with a 7mm mag. Do you or have you ever owned the exact same rifle in both a 300 win and a 7mm and I mean exact down to the scope? I have and I can tell you the 300 win kicks more and I noticed it and I am not recoil shy at all. 210 Berger’s had noticeable more recoil than the 7mm mag shooting 168 or 180 Berger’s. There is no difference between the two as on game performance that I have seen some things work better than on paper the 7mm mag is one of those things and so is a 6.5-284. I have seen the internal performance and both are equal in my mind.

MontanaRifleman,

You wanted to get into a measuring contest with your 300 RUM comments and comparing it to a 7mm mag so that is why you got the comment on the 300 rum. As for recoil the 300 rum is not bad and pretty mild compared to some. Yes I would recommend the 7mm mag for 1000 yard Elk and same with the 300 Win and they both stop there unless you are over 9000ft you might get 1200 out of either. I am also going to state a 7mm STW is better than either of the two.
