Been hunting 7mm mag with 150 grain CXP2's for years, never lost a deer. Most of them also never took a step.

Great caliber for deer.

I have shot countless whitetails, 2 250lb plus muleys at 100 yards or more, 3 antelope over 200 yards...all with a BAR 7mm, 162 grain hornadys.

The muleys didnt fall hard but didnt go far either. Everything else drops or runs within sight...all shot on or slightly behind shoulder. Usually messes up shoulder meat but I would rather loose a little shoulder meat than loose all of it.

Im am looking at selling this gun now, for no other reason than I want a 300 mag barrel for my Pro Hunter and I am building a .243 for whitetail and antelope this summer.

I have had a ruger 7 mag for a dozen years and love it. I've taken 5 muleys and numerous whitetails with a 140 grain winchester accubond and love that bullet.

Same here except for the fact that a box is $10 more than 30 06 or 270.

That's the only downside, they are a little more expensive.

I have a 7mm Mag and I use Remington Corelok or Winchester X bullets. I've only shot at one deer, and it went down. I like it. It's good for just about any game in North America, maybe except the big grizzy bears.

I shoot 140 barnes TTSX. I have yet to kill a deer with mine "bought it last year" but it is one of the most accurate guns I own.
