7mm Rem. Mag

How many here use a 7mm Rem. Mag for their long range hunting?
If so, at what ranges?
How are your rifles set-up and what is your favorate load?
Pictures welcome.

Thanks
Bill

    I use the 7mm mag. I mainly use the 162 a-max or 168 berger. I use the 160 accubond on close stuff.
    I really like the 7mm mag, a great ballistic package with low recoil.
    My rifle has a 26" No 5 barrel, Rem 700 action. Homemade fibreglass stock, Leupold VXIII 4.5 - 14x 40 LR

    Deer at 442 yds with 168 berger



    Fallow at 638 yds with 162 a-max



    My father and daughter with Dad's first deer in 48 years, 358 yds 162 a-max


    Pig at 476 yds with 168 berger



    Stu.

    I have a custom barrelled TC encore by Bullberry Barrel Works with a 26" bbl, Leupold 4.5-14 LR, shooting berger 168 in nosler brass, cci primer, and H1000 (forget the exact load). IMO it is a good caliber with lots of good bullets available
