Depends on what you want it for... great for elk and whitetail deer, lousy for squirrels and rabbits.

7 mag is a fine, powerful long range caliber. It's been around long enough to have been proven efficient as a game cartridge. Many manufacturers make fine, quality rifles, their are excellent bullets to choose from if you reload. It is common enough that ammo is usually plentiful if you buy it.

There is a lot to like about the caliber and rifles chambered for it.

Hooowdy ya'll. I think( I don't do it often) the 7mmmag is a good caliber but I think the 8/06 or the 30-06 is just as good. ya kinda tear up the meat on jacks or dogs. I do like the 8-06 cause ya can go from 125 to 250 on bullet selection. my fatherinlaw built a 7x57AI moved the throat out .050" ,using my f1 chrony it's only 125fps fron the 7mmag. However, the 7mm mag does kick alot less than than the 300 winmag. Dave Smile Smile

What type of animals are we talking about hunting here? Deer at long range? Elk at medium range? 7Mag is a nice caliber, with light bullets it can be a good long range deer gun, with heavy bullets its a good shorter range elk gun. Its flexible enough to go both ways.

My brother uses a 7mm rem mag for deer and elk. Like Dallan says it works great on deer with lighter bullets and equally as good on elk with heavier bullets. Smile

Goodness! There's probably a half million of so of them in the woods each hunting season. Rem's 7 Mag. rifle and its ammo sales for big game cartridges are in the top 4 or 5 each year. Maybe there's a reason? Very Happy

The 7mm Rem Mag is a fine cartridge. It's history and success shows that it is almost as good as the 30-06.

My 2 cents:
Love mine, haven't had to chase anything since I started using it.
I take that back the elk was dead, but slid down the mountain a ways.

Have taken antelope, elk , mulies and white tail, did sorta blow up a coyote. ( not a varmit gun)
Do load down to 130 gr sierra boat tails, for antelope, up to 166 gr cor-loc's for elk.
Flat shooter, if I can see it I can kill it.
