I love the 7 mag too, mine's a Ruger. In my opinion, if you have to shoot more than 20 rounds a day, there is no finer caliber. Yes, yes, the 300 mag, etc. has more punch and velocity, but go shoot one 20 times and see how your shoulder feels.

Weapons have to be practical too and not disable the shooter. I'm a bigger guy and the 7 mag is all I can continuously fire and tolerate the concussion and shoulder impact.

.308 is a fine caliber too, but the 7 mag shoots flatter and faster and no one will live though a well placed shot and the 7 mag gives you the best chance at that.

I hear that. I used to own a rifle chambered for the .338 win magnum. A great round but twenty rounds in one session was enough.
