7mm Remington Magnum Ammunition
Cartridge Hall of Fame
The 7mm Remington Magnum was introduced by Remington in 1962 and was released in conjunction with the new Remington Model 700 bolt action rifle. It's a medium power cartridge generating over 3,200 foot-pounds of energy, with heavy loads.
Derived from the 375 H&H case, the 7mm Remington Magnum is a belted bottleneck design. The belt is used to control headspace in factory loadings.
While first chambered in a Remington Model 700. Today the 7mm Remington Magnum is available in nearly every commercial centerfire sporting rifle. Ammunition is readily available, and bullet weights range from 100 to 175-grains.
Considered a medium game cartridge, the 7mm Remington Magnum is popular among deer and elk hunters. Its flat trajectory and high energy levels, make it an ideal choice for western hunting where shots tend to be longer.
With perhaps a million rifles chambered for the 7mm Remington Magnum, its future is quite secure. It truly belongs in the Cartridge Hall of Fame.
