Re: Truth and cheat

Actually the 7mm, especially the more potent versions get down range and hold velocity very well, the thing is, they dont buck wind quite as well and dont arrive with as much authority as the larger calibers.

At 600 yds, it's a descent round, however... I would still take a 300 WSM over my old 7mm RM at any range. It will push a 180 gr bullet about the same velocity as a 7mm does a 160 with just a few more gr of powder and be a little more effective.

Re: Truth and cheat

Well, hate to bring up bad blood again, however without making everyone mad and telling you what crap yall have........ :-). I would like to know if anyone out there would care to give some insight on the 7mm RUM. I know throat/barrel life is questionable however over all. Lets say elk and smaller game to 1500 yds? I heard alot of valuable information on the 7mm however I am really intrested in the 7mm RUM as a LRH rifle. Thanks ahead of time for your time. I currrently shoot .300 win I love this rifle just want something new and I am leaning towards the 7mm RUM

Not to derail this topic, but how is the 7mm RUM's barrel life compared to a .30-378 ?

Re: Truth and cheat

Just i small word from Down Under.

When it comes to bigger guns and more grunt way out there it is never a case of need but more want. I feel like i now have to justify why i have a 338 edge or my 500 NE to you, well my friend its because i wanted them not needed. I can and have shot sambat deer with a 270win but it aint half the fun of the 500 NE.

Re: Truth and cheat

We could all do with less. But why? If you want to shoot several different types of targets. From paper, metal to animals there is no replacement for displacement.

Wait a minute...I thought the .22LR was that baddest boy on the block. What happened to that? Someone that's this full of crap ought not call him/herself turd shooter.
