Mauser once built a special intermediate length action for the 7x57, but none of the major rifle makers do so today. 89 mm long neck better suited for loading long heavier bullets. It essentially uses less powder to achieve the same velocities as the standard 7mm Rem. Regardless of the powder used, I continue to prefer the Federal 215 primer. 50 a case, but I don't have to tin- ker with case prep. 060 inch off the rifling at an overall cartridge length of 3.

It will kick you a bit though! 275 Rigby which is what the British called the 7mm Mauser for British citizens hunting all over the globe. 338, but died quickly and cleanly when the Partition took out both lungs. Both of them are very accurate off the bench. Keep in mind that some of the longer bullets may require quicker rifling twist rates than we are accustomed to using. This hasty wind hold method works well out to about 1,400 yards with my 7 SAUM, and the 8 mph constant will put my wind holds consistently. The Hornady 175-grain ELD-X at 1.

I think it will fit the bill for deer out to 300 yds with a good bullet and should have flat trajectory with manageable recoil. This load was very accurate, had a relatively flat trajectory, and did it all with a modest amount of recoil. 2 from that, we get our elevation hold in mils. This makes the 7mm Remington Short Action Ultra Magnum better suited for loading long heavier bullets. 750 inch and was eventually reduced to 0.

Its overall length is just slightly greater than what can be accommodated by most short action rifles, so it is usually found in standard length actions, where it's performance is outclassed by longer cartridges like the. The same goes for and roe deer in Europe and New Zealand as well as most species of like impala, zebra, wildebeest, gemsbok, waterbuck, and kudu. The American cartridge is probably the closest ballistic twin of the. And the best of the short action 7mm's, the. 3 MOA and a conser- vative 2,920 fps with standard deviation SD at 6 fps. For the vast majority of deer and elk hunting situations at moderate range, the three cartridges perform about the same. Wildcats are not governed by C.

Due to advances in propellents, modern factory-loaded 7mm Mauser ammo has slightly improved ballistics compared to the original loads from the 1890s. 284 Winchester than all other calibers combined. Modern lighter bullet arguments do not hold for they might be compared to modern heavy bullets. 75 inch at the muzzle, and it wears a very efficient 30-port brake.

Factory 140-grain loadings leave the barrel at about 3325 fps, while the 160-grain factory load leaves at about 3200 fps. This applies to all cartridges, including the 7mm STW. While I shot some factory ammunition, I developed a load around IMR 4831 and the 160-grain Nosler Partition bullet that gave me a muzzle velocity of about 2,820 fps and 100-yard accuracy of just under an inch.

For a hunter the milder more efficient 7mm mauser is better. 2013-07-15 at• The original purpose of the belted magnum concept taken from the and , was to provide precise control, since the sloping shoulders, while easing cartridge extraction, were unsuitable for this purpose. Due in part to the popularity of cartridges like the 7mm Remington Magnum, the. 781 inches also delivers excellent accuracy from my Ruger No. 284 Winchester is loaded with 175 and 180 gr. In turn, that gives them increased powder capacity for increased velocity and energy over other cartridges using the same bullet diameter. The cartridge uses a large rifle magnum. 50 inch for groups fired at 100 yards. A big difference between the old and new bullets is that the extremely long ogives of the new bullets require some of them to be seated quite deeply into the case in order to keep cartridge overall length compatible with magazine lengths. The best of the American standard length 7mm cartridges, the. 1 allows from left to right the Barnes 168-grain LRX, Hornady 175-grain ELD-X, and Berger 195-grain Elite Hunter bullets to be seated in a case for minimum intrusion on its powder cavity. That along with a 30-inch barrel increases velocity by about 200 fps compared to a 26-inch barrel with a chamber throat of standard length. Alternative cartridges [ ] The cartridge, a bottlenecked short magnum introduced in 2001, is probably the closest ballistic twin of the 7mm Remington Magnum.

The commercially rarer cartridge, a rebated rim bottlenecked centerfire short magnum introduced in 2002, is probably the other closest ballistic twin of the 7mm Remington Magnum. These high impact velocities caused some of those bullets to expand much too quickly on large, tough animals like elk at the expense of penetration. 5 to come up with our hold in mils.

Choice of bullet and barrel length [ ] Bullet choice when reloading is critical, as bullet velocity at close ranges may result in less robust bullets disintegrating without providing significant penetration on especially tough game. While doing so with those three bullets allows the use of slightly heavier powder charges for increased velocities without exceeding maximum pressures in my rifle, the powder charges used would surely generate excessive pressures in rifles with standard-length chamber throats. 270 may be the best balanced long range big game cartridge ever invented probably doesn't hurt, either.

Many owners of old Swiss service rifles in the United States are also now reforming. Additionally, Nosler loads their 140gr Accubonds to an advertised velocity of 2,700fps, which is a great flat shooting and hard hitting load. at Chuck Hawks• 7mm Mauser vs 7mm-08 vs 7mm Magnum Speaking of the and the 7mm Remington Magnum, here is a brief description on how the 7mm Mauser compares to those other 7mm cartridges. maximum allowed chamber pressure and, as a European 7 mm cartridge, has a slightly larger bore.

However, for a heavier-hitting bullet to fill the hunting role, most shooters jump right into the. This is clearly illustrated by data shown for the two cartridges in the new handloading guide recently published by Western Powders. Most choose the 140-grain as the best all-around hunting bullet.

The choice of barrel length is also critical, as a 26-or-27-inch 660 or 686 mm barrel is commonly needed to achieve the full velocity potential of the cartridge, and a 24 inches 610 mm barrel should be viewed as a practical minimum. Contents• Indeed, the American Army was so impressed with the performance of the Mauser rifle and cartridge that they developed the 1903 Springfield rifle and.

The BR will shoot quarters at 200 using 120-140 bullets that will expand at 15 in. I welcome them, not because they guarantee shooters will consistently take game cleanly at insane distances because they do not , but because their high ballistic coefficients enable those bullets to better resist wind deflection and deliver more energy to the target. The case has a rebated rim and a body almost as large in diameter as that of typical belted magnum cases. This reduces usable powder capacity and hence performance compared to longer action cartridges like the.。 。 。 。 。 。
