Anyone rocking a 7mm Magnum?

I really want this to be next in my collection. In case zobbies attack I want to keep my distance.
comments / suggestions on what brand?
I was looking at a 7mm Remington Magnum.

I will most likey not be hunting large game with this. MAYBE down south for deer. Mostly wood chucks / sknuks and those effing crows.

Plenty of firepower for varmints, for sure. My son shoots one and it's too friggin loud and kicks too much. I'd go 223 for varmints. Ammo is cheap.

PSD- yea, I finally got one.

7mm is a little over kill for any of the mentioned critters except for deer n zombies. LOL

I love my 7mm. as far as what gun id suggest Im kind of on the fence. I really try to sell people on the savage. awesome accuracy straight outa the box but some of their components seem a little chintzy to me Ie. trigger, safety, stock.

But the new Remingtons IMHO are junk too! the action is sloppy and gritty.

at the moment I cant suggest a rifle just an assurance that I Love my 7mm!

If your wanting to get out to 500-700 yards good luck with factory ammunition. long range is def. a hand loading game. you can load up 243 to stay supersonic beyond 1000 yards.

not trying to talk you out of the 7mm or any thing im just saying for varmints I would invest in some good glass for the 243 and some reloading equipment. B4 buying into the adage that bigger is better.

with a factory barrel? I honestly have no idea what my stock rifling is.
I think I was loading 70 grain or something. I have some trigger time with the .243, I didnt think I could get that far with it. I figured 400 would be about lost.

probably... but the 7mm is going to have the same limitations if you are worried about barrel weight, twist rate etc.

The REMINGTON 7MM MAG is an E X C E L L E N T caliber, I had a SAVAGE 111 and I could only get 1.5 inch groups for 3 shots at 100 yards I guess it was the skinny barrel suffering from the whip & heat of the barrel
