    This myth will just not go away! How many times do we need to bust it?

    Buy a 7mm, you won't regret it... and don't be afraid of the word, 'magnum' in the name.

    Let's try and stay on topic and leave personal views and ethics out of this thread for once.
    Ok,my bad, ethics have no business in hunting. Get a 30 06 or other similar and practice practice practice.

    I've seen that myth in meat damage to say there's nothing to it.

    Being new to this site I don't want to pi$$ anyone off but why go with the 7mm when you can get a 280 to do the same thing with less powder and less recoil? Ill shoot my 280 against anything out there. Whats the point of a magnum? Shoot what you shoot well and put the bullet were its supposed to go. Lights out.

    A 30-06 shooting the 180 Sierra Gameking hits the target at 200 yards at the same impact velocity as the 300 WM does at 350 yards with the same bullet. Although the ranges are different, the performance and meat damage will be the same.

    I have personally witness very high impact velocities with low amounts of meat damage. Barnes bullets are particularly good for avoiding excessive damage to the meat with high velocity impacts, due to the bullet's construction.

    The 280 is a fine cartridge, but of course does NOT do the "same thing" as the 7 RM. It fires the same bullets slower, and so the 7 RM has more range. As mentioned before, it is also not a heavy recoiling round, despite the "magnum" moniker.

    my 280 shoots 140 grain nosler accubonds at 3100FPS. there isn't a 7 mag at the range that shoots faster then that. Three guys have sold there 7's and went to the 280 and they love them. Not trashing the 7 mag but I just don't see the point. I have owned two of them and didn't mind them but just wasn't a need for all the extra powder.

    I'm working up a load for my 7 Mag right now and am shooting 180 Bergers over 3000 fps. Haven't reached max yet and will likely end up around 3050 fps with the big 180s. With that bc at that speed, there isn't much that can touch it.

    Wow, were getting into picking some mighty small nits here. You could argue that any of about 30 different calibers in any good quality rifle that fits would fit the bill. Most of this is just personal opinion anyway. I sort of like the .375h&h or .338 win for up here.
