Re: Does a 7mm mag need a tactical scope
Cartridge alone will not dictate hunting vs. tactical scope, intended usage will. If you are implying quality, you usually get what you pay for and since it's a moderately recoiling round I'd invest a decent amount in the scope to try and make sure it doesn't die on you.
If you're going to zero it 3 inches high at 100 yds and hold over for longer ranges, the added features of a tactical may be of limited use to you. If you want to dial in for range/wind, the lack of turrets on a hunting scope will be a serious drawback.
A tactical scope does hunting better than a hunting scope does tactical, so plan accordingly.
