I have shot SST's and they aren't my favorite because they have fragmented badly on multiple occasions. That being said, that 139 GR SST in 7mm Remington Magnum will kill deer just fine. The top four all-around rifle cartridges for CXP2 and CXP3 sized game are generally considered to be the 270 WIN, 7mm Remington Magnum, 308 WIN and 30-06. The 7mm Remington Magnum is one of the finest long range calibers ever developed and the best selling magnum cartridge of all time. You've got a proven winner.

My dad has a remington 700 7 mag and he has lost more deer with that gun than he did when he used a 30-30 marlin. He's not a bad shot and the deer he shot had good blood trails but it just didn't knock then down. I use a 700 30-06 and have never lost a deer(just jinked it) i personally wouldn't use one cuz it's so high of a caliber but that's your choice. Either way it's a great gun.

In 35 years of shooting.. I have only had one scope hit me in the eye when I was shooting.. and yep.. it was a 7 mag.. 5-6 years later I sighted in a 7 mag for a buddy.. I thought it had dislocated my shoulder.. I have a brand new never fired BAR safari grade 7 mag in my safe... it will probably never be fired..LOL....

I have shot the sst 150 in my 30.06 last three years with great success. I was just worried the the 139 gr would fragment in a magnum shell on a deer. Thanks everyone for all the advice!

I shot a 7mag for 20 plus years and love it. I've never lost a deer with it that I hit in the vitals. I shoot a 150gr Nosler Ballistic Tip in handloads and have a buddy that shoots 120gr of the same bullet and has had the same results. Great gun if your hunting longrange.

Not trying to cause a problem but I shoot the exact same gun and did not have any luck with the lighter rounds , I use Winchester Supreme 150 gr. Balistic Silvertips with great success . Believe I would shoot at least 150 gr. bullet if I were you . Take the 7mm mag . over 30 06 any day
