Re: 7mm Mag

Seems I was wondering some of these same things. I can't argue with what anybody has said at this point. I know that for my purposes, it is plenty of gun. I have enjoyed the two I have had. I am becoming curious of what will happen if Berger get's that 195gr lined out an in production. I am going to see what some of the more experienced guys come up with when they start testing it, and go from there. It will probably be more popular for the heavier 7mm's, but I think it could be a great bullet for the 7mag also. If the outlook is promising, I see a rebarrel with a little longer barrel to make up a little velocity and a brake on it and see how it goes. I sure do like shooting my sendero right now.

Re: 7mm Mag

You are right, and no GOOD reason. The seven mag, always has and always will be a fantastic cartridge. It has all the best attrbutes wrapped up into one. High velocity, manageable recoil in any configuration, and not fussy to load for. I personally have three of them. I have a 700p, a LSS, and a Wincester M70 synthetic. And I'm guilty of drooling over a few others that I might have to own too!
I think we are all guilty of shooting the newest whiz bang that comes along, but when all the dust settles, the old seven is STILL worth it's weight in gold. Pretty damn tough to beat a good 7 Mag. And most of them are good!!

You pretty much nailed it. Although, if I were going to do a custom build, I would think about this cartridge:

Anyone own a 7mm 300 Win Mag?

If I had the money laying around to do it, I would do it. A little more messing around reloading and whatnot, but has proven to be a great performer for many of the experienced guys using them. The nice thing with the 7RM though is like stated before, simple reloading, manageable magnum recoil, shoot anything in North America.
