Drawing on our past and Roy’s vision of superior ballistic performance, Ed and Adam Weatherby continue to inspire the dreams of hunters and shooters around the world with the same innovation and pacesetting performance that has fueled this company for seven decades.
Introduced nearly 20 years before the popular 7mm Remington Magnum, the Weatherby version gives non-handloaders handloaded 7mm magnum performance. Delivers 400 fps more velocity than the 7mm Mauser. Ballistically similar to the .270 Weatherby Magnum with a larger selection of bullet weights, this cartridge is well-suited for any North American game as well as thin-skinned African game.
The 7 mm Weatherby mag is my favorite for two reasons. First is the recoil, 25.9 Ft-Lbs. Vs. 50+ Ft-Lbs. for the .300 Weatherby Mag. When you know 50 Ft-Lbs. is coming at you, just try to keep your eye open to shoot through the shot. Second is the ballistics. If you compare the 7 mm Mag vs. the .300 Mag they are almost identical out to 300 Yards. Even out to 400 yards the 300 has only a small advantage. How often are you going to take a 400 + yard shot. MY .300 hangs on the wall and my 7MM kills anything that gets in the way. I live in Alaska and use it for Grizzly, Moose, and Black bear. The 7 MM shoots so flat I never bother with scope elevation adjustments. +3.5 " @ 200yards and 0 @ 300yards. Try to find a used one on the internet, you can't give a .300 Mag, away and you can't find a 7MM Mag for sale.
