I consider the 7mm REM Mag my absolute perfect, trophy deer cartridge. When money (paid hunt) or a trophy buck is on the line, I grab one of my 7mm RMs. I have the upmost confidence it will get the job done on deer to any practical distance close or far.

I have taken more deer with a 7mm-08 over the last decade or two and love it for many reasons but the 7mm RM gives me that extra confidence when I get serious about a trophy. I have taken the majority of my larger WT bucks and made some of my tougher shots with a 7mm RM. There are more efficient, faster, lower recoiling, more portable, less blast, yada-yada-yada cartridges but the 7mm Remington Magnum flat out works on deer.

Killed my first WV deer with my brother’s Brown custom; Mark X action, Shilen SS barrel, Brown (of course) stock, S&B 1.5-6. Went about 10lbs (the rifle, not the deer). Fine rifle, but waaaay too much for deer in the woods. Could be loaded down of course, but still a load to tote. Honestly can’t say it killed that deer any faster or deader than anything else I’ve used. Made a heckuva hole!

I have two Mark V 7mm Weatherby Mags. A Howa built 24” tube synthetic stock and a Saco Defense made 26” Kreiger Criterion barreled one with a Bell+Carlson stock. Both are somewhat heavy but are great shooters. My son has a Savage 110 7mm Rem Mag that has taken many elk and mule deer. It will see action in elk country this year, but mine will be sidelined by the 6.5-300 Wby and .300 Wby.

My dad hunted with one almost exclusively from the early 70’s. it killed a lot of game and an enormous variety at that. I’ve used one fairly extensively with great success. It’s an excellent cartridge.

Made the comment to my bride that would be last "new LH M70" I'd ever see and walked.

Months later she presented it to me for our anniversary.

Excellent!

I've hung onto both!


I would too. They both sound like keeper!

A rifle that has sentimentality is truly special.

Mine is a 700 BDL, that someone “tacticooled” the recoil to performance ratio is pretty good with the “seven emm emm” I’ll never be without one.

I just picked up a "new" one on Saturday. 1993 Stainless Ruger M77 in a Boat Paddle. Only thing I'm going to do is add a decent recoil pad.

I have 2. Ruger Hawkeye All Weather that I just put into a B&C stock. Hoping I can get it to shoot better than the 1.25”-1.5” groups I was getting from it before. My other is a Tikka T3x Lite SS that puts both 160 Accubonds or 175 Partitions into tiny groups with near-max loads of RL22. I love the Tikka as one of my all-rounder guns. Hopefully the Ruger shoots better and can join that list.

I have a couple of the Rugers. One of the newer Hawkeyes the other is an older Mark II boat paddle with sights. These are both used rifles, so far unfired by me.

I had a blued / walnut Ruger many years ago that I used a bit. But my interest went to a bit larger diameter bullets.
I do like 7mm Remington magnum. It still seems pretty popular even with the competition of more recent 7mm's.

Well do you have a favorite size wrench as well?
How about paint brushes? lol
I personally think they are a great cartridge for that which they were designed to do.
Which aint everything.
