7mm mag is a big rifle. lol. have some friends that use them in georgia. seems like alittle over kill, but that is just my opinion. lol. 270, 308, 30-06, 7mm-08, 25-06, 30-30, 243 will take down any deer in the southeast. all about shot placement. but hey, each his own. lol. a good recoil pad and maybe a muzzlebrake will take alot of the bite out of that rifle.
