The only problem I've ever seen with the 7 mag is that most most of the older guns do not have a fast enough twist to shoot the heavyweight high BC VLD bullets. They do great with up to 160 grain bullets but won't stablize the heavier ones.

There is a lot of truth in the above statement. I shot a 7 Rem Mag for 25 years and it did everything I could hope for but then you get involved in places like this and think you need at least a 180 gr pill and now your old barrel is the wrong twist.

No one is interested in it any more. Just like the .308, which is a reliable all around caliber.

Thats because the rifles in "days of yore" werent planned for these kinds of applications. They were setup to sling a pill of "max of X size" so many yards to kill something....not punch holes in paper to brag about.
