Default Santa Barbar rifle in 7 mm Remington Magnum

Start in this forum by a query. How about a rifle from Remington Magnum cartridge 7; to hunt deer and roe deer stalking mode, ie at distances of about 200-300 meters. I commented that to hunt the boar harassed by dogs I have a Remington 338 Winchester Magnum rifle. Do you think a good complement to the 338 Winchester Magnum; the 7mm Remington Magnum?

Thank you,

Nice looking rifle, I never need much of an excuse to purchase another firearm. 7mm mag is pretty stout and would take anything in your country. Maybe your next purchase might be something in the 243, 260, 25-06 just to round out a nice trio.

Hi since the end there will be a 7 mm Remington Magnum, the man who sold the rifle has another rifle in 270 Winchester and he says he sells that and not 7 RM. Do not miss you have another magnum, will it be enough 270 W cartridge to hunt the deer and roe deer stalking mode? To say that I also have a 375 H & H Magnum and 458 Lott, both rifle Ceska 550

Thank you,

Oscar.

This is the rifle that the man sell me. It is another Santa Barbara but in 270 Winchester. He sell me without scope. Do you like 270 Winchester?

I'm a big fan of the 270 win. It runs neck and neck with the old 30-06 for American hunters. I used my Remington mountain rifle in 270 win for elk in western USA. I like 140 gr Swift-A-Frame bullets. Many hunters prefer 130 gr bullets for deer sized game in 270 cal.

Thanks, but I imagine that in performance the 270 Winchester is quite behind the 7 mm Remington Magnum, is not it?

Regards,

Default I for one prefer the 270Win over the 7mm Mag

I have shot various Magnum rifles- 7mm Mag, 300 Win Mag, 338 Win Mag, Weatherby 340 Mag. These rifle chamberings all have a place, and if I was going for Grizzly or Brown Bears I would be using a 338 Win Mag. The 7mm Mag pushes a bullet very fast and I have seen it perform at very long ranges. I personally am not a hunter that plans on shooting anything over say 250 yards. The 270 Win using controlled expansion bullets can be counted on to take game the size of Elk up to 300 yards. All the while not beating up the shooter with tons of recoil so the shooter doesn't get any bad habits.

My opinion is that the magnum craze is way over rated. I'd much rather a hunter use a non-mag and be very proficient than an average hunter carry a big magnum and be less proficient or worse recoil shy.

The 7mm Remington Magnum is the ballistic equivalent of the .30-06 except in 7mm diameter. I own one, and would consider it for any game except deer-in-timber and the largest bears. The Santa Barbara Mauser's were made using actions identical (at the time) to Interarms Mark.X's, although I don't know if they were sourced from Zastava like Interarms or from the Spanish foundry at La Coruna (I have two of those actions). In any event, I'd have absolutely zero qualms about (a) buying that rifle (if you don't, maybe I will :) ) or (b) using it. The 7mm Rem Mag is well known, highly respected, and will do the job.
