    Have stroked my Beard more than once looking at the 7RUM. Many good and valid reasons why this Cartridge is not a good idea but you only live once and most interesting things in life are never sensible. I have gone as far as obtaining Dies and Brass. I may chance my arm sometime .

    I had a Remington 700 AWR from the custom shop that was chambered for 7mm RUM . The thing was quite accurate with my handloads using the Nosler 150 BT . I had it set up with a Leupold Vari XIII 4.5-14xAO . I carried it a number of times in my more open areas without ever seeing a deer . One day just for the heck of it I carried it in the woods where the longest shot I could have would be about 125 yards . Anyway I sat there awhile and finally two appeared at about 40-50 yards two booms later and they were both dead right there .

    Certainly not what the cartridge was intended for . I traded it back to the dealer I bought it from and then later got it back . Never killed anymore deer with it and finally traded/sold it to a friend and he carried it to the Dark Continent and shot a Zebra and a Kudu with it , however he stepped it up to the Nosler 160 Partition or Accuband I cannot remmember which .

    I would think the international hunter that had a 7mm RUM and a 375 RUM could cover just about everything that walks on the face of this earth !

    I can second the comment on the 7mm REM MAG . Cannot say much on the 7mm WSM I did however have a 7mm SAUM which is pretty much the same thing and it certainly was a deer stomper . As to the WSM line of cartridges I did however have the 270 WSM , 300 WSM and 325 WSM and all thre were deer thumpers .
