7mm Remington Magnum Deer Hunting:
Deer Size Animals: Antelope, Blacktail Deer, Hogs, Javelina,
Mule Deer & Whitetail Deer.

The 7mm Remington Magnum is a really good choice for long range deer and antelope hunting, however the 7mm Rem. Mag. can recoil fairly well using top velocity loads, Remington now makes managed recoil loads for the 7mm Rem. Mag. that tame the recoil for the recoil sensitive hunter or the hunter that knows most of his or her shots will be up close.

 Remingtons 7mm Rem. Mag. managed-recoil centerfire ammunition delivers deer hunting performance out to 300 yards with half the recoil as they use a specialized new bullet that provides 2x expansion with over 75% weight retention.

 As you might imagine the above Remington ammunition for the 7mm Rem. Mag. recoils considerably less than the standard loading, so lets look at the ballistics of what the 7mm Rem. Mag. cartridge is truly capable of when bullet and powders that are very specialized for distance and power are used.

 As you can see in the above ballistics chart the 7mm Rem. Mag. cartridge is more than capable of supplying plenty of energy with a very flat trajectory well beyond a 1/4 of a mile or (440 Yards) when used for deer and antelope hunting.
