7mm saum

hey i'm 18 years old and have shot a lot in my lifetime so far but never past 500-600 yards. my best gun is a rugerm77 mark 2 in 7mm saum. how far out do u think this will be effective. i am planning to build a .338 edge but i have to save up some more money first.

It will be as effective as you are for as far as you are. What Im tring to say is it will work well for as far as your ablitys allow you to put your shot inside of the chest cavity of the game you are pursuing. The cartridge is a good one. Just choose a good bullet...

it will consistently shoot 1/2 moa or better. would it have the power to kill a deer at 900 - 1000 yards? i am shooting a 160 g sgk that has a muzzle velocity of around 3000 fps.

7mm saum

it will kill a long ways . you need to try it at that range and see what your groups are. for that long of range i would try the 168 berger. try it at 1000 yards and see how big your groups are. the wind becomes a big factor that far.
