Your classification is precisely the one I (we all) like best. Money for the bills, ok, but the main part for hunting and BTW, just preparing for moose hunt in Sweden between 14th Oktober - 21th Oktober.

    That sounds like fun. I always wanted to kill a big moose and have it mounted. Those things are huge.

    Yepp, they are huge but they easily fall (good bullet -placement required). No artillery necessary. For that purpose a 7RM is more than sufficient.

    There's a member on here that killed a monster moose @ 900-something yards with a 7RM. I can't remember who, but it was huge!

    Wow, I can't almost imagine how difficult a shot like that might be...honestly I wouldn't dare to shoot on game at that distance. It' s about a different hunting culture and opportunities. Your example shows clearly how decisive good bullet placement is before calibre. 7RM is one of the best ever IMHO!

    WOW! While I think long-range hunting is perfectly appropriate, I don't think I'd take on a big 'ol moose with a 7mm RM @ that range. Then again the "proof is in the pudding" and that hunter filled his/her freezer where I may have just had tag soup...

    In Scandinavia you'll find many people using 7s like 7 x 57 (R), 7 x 64 (65R) and 7 RM on mooose at all occasions and never have any trouble killing moose, wild boar or deer fast enough and correctly. That supports our opinion that hunters/ shooters first of all have to train a lot on the range and getting familiar with their guns. In Norway everyone who wants to hunt on larger game has to pass an annual shooting test! For every rifle he or she wants to hunt with. If not... no hunting. Easy as that.
