Wow, is this thread STILL going? \:D

I shoot a 7mag. The only thing I DON'T like about the 7mag is the ammo price, especially compared to the 30.06, 270, and 308 prices...they are less expensive than the 7mag. I don't reload, so I just deal with the prices.

What would be better for deer hunting? Knock down, bullet price, shooting range etc.


I have hunted with the 270 for all but the last 2 years, and now i hunt with the 270WSM.......i have to admit the wsm is a bit more harsh than i anticipated, for i believe the 270 standard to be the best all around cartridge both in killing, flat shooting and recoil that there is out there........having said that i love the 308 as well since i bought my son one and the younger one a 243 which i dont care for at all in the cutover areas i hunt. The 7mm mag is an outstanding cartridge so i recommend you go with what feels right for you. You wont be disappointed if you go with your "heart". I did, and i have never looked back, or at any other cartridge.......I knew it was the right cartridge for me the first time i ever read Jack oconnor and the benoits because some of them use them in pump remingtons. Dude i have been a diehard fan since.!!!

Just for giggles I read back through the old posts, we settled the argument years ago. Some are just reluctant to lose lol.

never used either, but a friend moved from texas a few years back. he shot a sub-100 pound doe at 150 with his 7mag, and he said the bullet vaccumed the heart through the exit wound. he showed me pics on his phone and said "yeah I'm gonna have to get a tennessee-friendly rifle"

I agree. I have hunted with a .243 all my life. I also have a .270 I bought a few years ago. Both are great calibers and I have plenty of confidence in both.

I will say between the .270 and the 7mag I would shoot the .270 a lot more at the range. Shooting more is going to lead to better accuracy. And accuracy is what you are looking for, not deciding if you will need a knife for field dressing.



It is true that most hunters do not shoot enough to become good shots with their rifle. Maybe cheaper 270 Winchester cartridges would help them. When I was young we had varmint hunting , but the coyotes ate all the groundhogs.
