The 7mm Remington Magnum offers ballistics better than the .30-06 Springfield with bullet weights of 175 grains and less, one of the more popular loads being a 160 grain spitzer loaded to 3,000 ft/s (910 m/s).
This is due both to the higher muzzle velocity of the magnum compared to the Springfield and that .284 diameter bullets tend to have better ballistic coefficients than .308 diameter bullets of comparable mass.
Because of the smaller bullet diameter .284 diameter also have higher sectional density than .308 diameter bullets, and because of that better penetration in the target (it takes a 206 grain .308 diameter bullet to get the same sectional density as a 175 grain .284 bullet, an increased weight that requires 15-20% more muzzle energy to get the same muzzle velocity).
The heaviest commercially loaded ammo available for the 7mm is 180 grains, while the .30-06 Springfield can be loaded with bullets up to 220 grains, but for a .308 caliber to equal the flat trajectory and penetration of a .284 diameter 180 grain bullet with a muzzle velocity of 2,860 ft/sec, as offered for the 7mm Remington Magnum, requires muzzle energy close to what the .300 Winchester Magnum can offer, i.e. well beyond what the .30-06 can deliver.
Metric caliber designations in America have always seemed to pose an issue; perhaps they don’t roll off the tongue as easily as decimal portions of an inch, or perhaps the metric system still confounds so many of the americans that it seems like a foreign language.
No matter the reason, until the recent rise of the 6.5mm cartridges, the metric-labeled cartridges have never really had the commercial success that others have—with the exception of the 7mm Rem. Mag.
It came along in 1962, introduced in the new-fangled Remington Model 700 rifle.
Banking on the success of the Winchester trio of belted magnums—the .264, .338 and .458—which were introduced in the 1950s, Remington used the same formula for their 7mm Rem. Mag.
Using the belted .375 H&H case, shortened to a length of 2.500” in order to fit in a long-action receiver, the steep-shouldered, fatter case gave plenty of room for powder, and yet positive headspacing off the shoulder.
The belt, you see, is how the .375 H&H and .300 H&H cases are headspaced, but it serves no real purpose in any of the other bottlenecked cartridges that were derived from them.
Remington’s concept of taking the wide selection of 7mm bullets, and launching them from the larger case made perfect sense; it offered a considerable velocity increase over the time-proven 7x57mm Mauser, as well as improving the ballistics of Remington’s .280 Rem.
It can take full advantage of the heaviest bullets in the 7mm lineup; the 175-grain bullets leave the muzzle at just under 2800 fps, making a good load for the biggest of the African plains game, and a gooddeer / elk / moose / bear load.
Recoil is just a bit less than that of the .300 Magnums, yet can still pose an issue for the recoil-sensitive.
The 7mm Rem. Mag. fits nicely in any .30-’06-length action, and coming from the Big Green factory, ammunition 10 readily available.
To this day, it still ranks very highly in the sales records of most ammunition makers, and with good reason: it is a very effective hunting cartridge.
