Just goes to show that a 7mm is to small to kill anything, especially dangerous game!!!

Those are absolutely beautiful bears!

Sorry... I just finished reading another load of gack from the internet wizards who mostly live in places you couldn't find an elk turd but know all about what it takes to kill them.
Must be after my bed time.
Brad, I think we were reading the same thread...I can't believe you didn't know you can't kill game big game at over 1,000 yards with a lowly puny weak 7mm bullet...

That was a damn nice kill @ 1,400+.......It's a shame it was in one of those little wimpy 7mm chamberings....Must have been a fluke thing.

Sorry for my sarcasm, but most of you know I am a huge 7mm fan, and advocate. I own a couple .30+ size calibers (inlcuding an old 444 Marlin lever-action for very close range, and an 1874 Sharps reproduction .45-70), but feel that the best bullet for what I use them for (whitetail deer) is the 7mm in its various chamberings. Been using 7mm calibers for 15 years now, and I can't see myself changing. I'd like to have a .338 Lapua, but I don't know what I'd hunt with it......Being that it's obvious you can kill some monster bears with a 7mm with 1 single shot, dead as a doornail. Guess I'll stick to my 7mm's.

Now I KNOW we have been reading the same thread.


SkyKing, thank you SO MUCH for helping to prove my point on another thread, that the 7mm is able to tackle any game in North America. Also, those are some seriously nice kills man. Those rifles are wicked, too. Is that a CF barrel I see in that last bear pic?

Bump for SkyKing, bump for some nice kills, and bump for the 7mm.

Re: 7WSM 180 Berger takes down two Grizzlies!

Here is the latest kill from this year.

I shot mine at 1100 yards with my 7saum Thunderbeast 30p-1 Berger 168 vld's hunting. Dropped it in its tracks. I will post video of it later.



My Brother's 785 yards. 243AI Berger 105 Hybrids. Blew a 2 inch hole in it.

Those are some great shots! Your brother's 243 did some serious damage with the 105's!
