Minimal bullet drop and its knock down power at the extreme range are its credentials.

Some where, someone must have had doubts about the .270 because along came the 7mm Magnum.
It has a slightly larger case and holds enough powder to push a 175-grain bullet faster than the .270 could move its lighter bullet.
That means that the 175-grain bullet from the 7mm Magnum retains nearly 2,000 ft/lbs of energy at 400 yards.
Bullet drop is about 42 inches at 400 yards, better than the .270 and without a lot more recoil.
Minimal bullet drop and its knock down power at the extreme range are its credentials.
The 7mm Remington Magnum is a very good Elk gun.
The 7mm Remington Magnum is the caliber of choice when I hit the hills.
