7MM Rem Mag shells

5 posts in this topic

I just purchased a used BAR in 7MM Rem Mag. I hunt moose every couple of years and whitetail deer every year. I will likely be using different shells for each. Any recommendations for each would be appreciated. I have always used Remington 180 grain A frame in my .30-06 for both deer and moose with great success. My shot range is 50 yards out to 300. I don't want to spoil meat but I want an effective killing bullet. I know shot placement is most important. Remington A frame is available in 160 grain and looks good to me based on previous success with that shell.

That should be plenty. Nosler Partitions, Swift A-frames, and Barnes Tripleshocks would all be good choices.

I have had luck with whitetails with the Winchester Silver Ballistic Tips in the 150 grains. They shoot very well out of my Browning A bolt.

I wouldn't monkey around with two loads. A 160 is plenty good enough for moose, and would have to be considered death on wheels for deer. One zero -- that's the key.

Federal Premium Barnes TSXs. They are awesome. Do some research on them and you will see why.

    • Looks interesting. They have those nets that you put down a hole that do the same thing, but I can see where some people would prefer this more solid version.
    •   The land in question is a 40 acre parcel up near Remer. My FIL's uncle has owned it since my FIL was a small child and he has been spending time up there ever since. It's a cool parcel of land with lake frontage but it is hard to get to. The last mile or so is basically an ATV trail. When it is dry enough we can get in with trucks but the last time I was up there there were a lot of trees across the trail that would need to be cleared.    I would love to be able to own that land but ultimately it has to be an immediate family member. My FIL says he was supposed to inherit it because his dad used to be half owner as well. It is looking less and less likely that will happen because the current owner's wife is in a nursing home and the money has run out. We think there may be a lien on the property already but don't know for sure.    My FIL needs to talk to his uncle about the situation before it's too late but I think he is holding out hoping to inherit it. I hope that happens but I'm pretty sure it won't.
    • This is a good way to keep them crisp
    •   I was just wondering where it was since you said you needed a 4 wheeler to get into it. I know the woods up in that area pretty well after years of hunting, snowmobiling and Dual Sport riding all over. Not thinking of buying but just wondering where it was?
    • I'm not fighting with anyone.   Many ways to make antennas, and for receivers in cars wavelengths aren't all that important.   Class up your vehicle with a wire nut or a fox tail or whatever you like.  
    •   Still a possibility but due to family dynamics it would have to be a joint venture with my FIL. He is the one that would have to technically make the purchase and we would go halves with him but he isn't doing anything about it right now.    It may still be a possibility but I'm not holding my breath.
    • sounds like draw length is too long
    • Wax all the string except where the serving is as the wax can get under it and cause it to slip   You should be able to tell the serving because the string will be thicker. Serving is just a thin string wrapped around you bow string. Will be around your peep sight around your d loop   If all else fails just go to your local archery shop and ask them for some pointer about waxing and other general bow maintenance that you should be doing hope some of this info helps though good luck!
