I'll bite why do they cringe when they hear 7mag?

    Flare/Corey- wonder if the cringing outiftters have a tape measure. my sendero/kreiger 7mm in three seasons : rocky mtn bighorn 182" ( 296yd) ; mule deer 223" (197yd) ; antelope 86" (590yd). my buddy and i got lucky in drawing the last couple years. of course it took 27 years for the bighorn tag. wait, no no elk in that bunch; last draw was 5 years ago . my last two elk were 11 yd and 27 yd with a 30-06. previous 6 elk though, were with a 7mm . it worked fine just like the 30-06.

    I've used the "three kings" extensively.
    After an almost 2 decade foray into various magnums- large, larger, and several wildcats because just "magnum" wasn't enough, I'm back to shooting a .270 (WSM) and 7 mag.
