300 win mag vs 7mm rem mag for deer. Load data for the 270 winchester. But thats just me. Never had any interest in the 7 rem mag at all. In the 7mm vs 30 caliber debate which reigns supreme.
However this increase in energy comes with an increase in. In the real world theres not enough difference to matter much. Three shooters that joined me at the rifle range with a 308 a 762 and a 300 win. Shoots with jaw dropping velocity power precision and bone shattering energy on impact literally.
300 win hands down imo. Velocity is typically 100 fps faster than the 270 win which is not bad but the 7mm rm uses lots more power to get there. If youre going to burn lots of powder and make lots of noise you might as well do it up right. With either you can easily exceed that magic number of 2850 fps and with the right bulletload combo head north of 3200fps for varmint hunting where flat shooting makes a big difference.
270 win because you can find ammo anywhere in case you forget yours at home. Have been using this load since i hunt somewhat close to houses. A reader recently requested a ballistic comparison between same weight bullets in a 300 win. One veteran gunwriter weighs in on the subject.
Which is superior in the 7mm vs 30 caliber argument. Pardon me for pointing this out. I have used both for deerit depends on what you plan on shooting with the rifleif you plan to do a good share of elk hunting i would suggest the 7mm magif deer sized animals are the primary target then either will doi am a bit partial to the 264 myself but thats my preferencei killed a fair amount of the local deer with a 7 mm mag shooting 154 gr hornadys at about 2800 fpsmy dad on the. In looking at the reloading data the 7mm is pretty anemic for a mag.
It is the second or third most popular hunting caliber for lots of reasons including moderate recoil. I have been considering pulling the tube on my 7mm rem mag and putting a new barrel in 270 wby mag on it. I mean the only difference is the nomenclature. Any 30 caliber cartridge delivers more energy than a comparable 7mm cartridge.
