    Hi tony at last aome one with taste and got a 7mm rem mag. its my first choise calibre for big reds, you got a few options here mate on what bullets to use all depending on the twist of your barrel and barrel length.

    Regards james

    Hi Tony, its a great choice, i have had most calibres but i love the 7mm, mine is a 30" barrelled custom that weighs close to 20lb but what a tool! The Reds dont like em thats for sure. I shoot 162gr heads through it and it hits very hard. My longest kill was witnessed by my friend (a member on here) and lasered with both a leica and a swaro rangefinders and it was 810 yards! You will love it, i personally would'nt drop below a 26" barrel to get the best from it.

    I also use 162 grain heads aswell as 168 grain heads mines a 26inch barrel and im getting 3100fps with them, they dont half hit hard they knock the deer straight off there feet.

    Hi Guys..super feedback and very reassurring ! Have put a deposit on a Browning X Bolt..that alone was a culture shift as I use a Sauer 202(243 )and a Sako 75 Stainless (308) ,but it is as new and lightly used...I was very impressed with some of the American/Australian You Tube calibre tests,with this rifle...I believe it is 26" , 1 in 10 twist but I stand to be corrected... Cheers,Tony

    I think perhaps you all need to slow down and READ the post, no one mentioned a deer???? And stalkerboydy, if i needed to shoot a deer at 400 yards i will bet you a months wages i could shoot that deer as well at that distance with my rifle as 99% of the people who are knocking me could at 100 yards! The dsc test is 3 shots inside a 4" circle at 100 yards, i would feel very, very confident at putting 3 shots in that at the 400 yards you mention. It really pisses me off when anyone mentions a long shot and everyone on here assumes that the person in question is a cowboy and would definately wound it! I have shot over 1000 deer now and only ever lost about half a dozen and every one of those was inside 200 yards mainly when i was younger and got a bit excited. Do not judge peoples ability on your own experience.
