Re: 7mm Remington Magnum ?

Hi Rusty
My loads for 7mm RM
68 grs. H-1000
Win. Brass
I first used 150 gr sierra game kings great for LR but they will blow up if you shoot one close. Used Hornady 139 gr SST's this year it did the job at 70 yrds. I didn't get the chance to try them at LR. I have some 140 gr Nosler Acu Bonds waiting to be loaded I have heard good things about them.
Good Luck
Thunder Stick

Re: Monster Masher 7mm Remington Magnum load...

Remington brass, Fed 215, 73.0-74.0g of R#25, 154g Hornady interbond or flat base sp@ 3250. This is a dragon slayer load. We have taken elk and deer and close and long range. The standard Hornady 154g sp flat base is quite a bullet for elk and deer.

By the way, you need to work up to this load in your rifle, and if you use Remington brass, you throw the brass away after one shot. We shoot this load in a Browning A-Bolt, and two 700's. If you shoot a deer at 100 yards, it will blow the guts out 10 yards on the other side of the deer.

Re: 7mm Remington Magnum ?

I've never owned a 7RM, but the most spectacular deer kills I've ever seen came from my previous rifle (7MM STW) with 120 NBT's at 3600. I've shot 5 deer from 80 to 320 yds. with these and never seen an exit. They get into the vitals and when you gut them, it's like pouring out runny grape jelly. Bang Flop!! I've since started using heavier bullets to get an exit and realize that a bad shot with a bullet that doesn't exit will problably end in a long, possibly bad tracking job, but fast NBT's work if you put it in the right spot! You should be able to get 3400-3500 out of your 7mag. I wouldn't hesitate to use these out to 500 on a halfway broadside deer with calm winds. Problably better choices out there, just sharing my experience.

Re: 7mm Remington Magnum ?

140-150g NBT's are great for deer. They usually exit deer incase they dont bang/flop. I like the speed of the 140 so always have a load worked up for them. Only getting 3250fps though. Knowing me, might just have to work up a 150g load to! Thought about trying the 120g BT for coyotes, but then got to thinking that at LR the slightly heavier 140g is a lot better. Just thinking out loud here.
