    7mm rem mag bullet weights- lightest and heaviest

    l am hoping to re- load my own bullets soon, and was wondering where do l get a good starting kit from, how much should l be looking at paying?
    Also can you tell me what the lightest and heaviest 7mm rem mag bullet l can re -load my self, thanks chris

    In reality you will be looking at 100gn to 175gn bullets although I have seen 79gn and 195gn bullets listed, getting them from you local RFD would not be easy.

    Remember the reason for the magnum case is to push heavy bullets at reasonable velocities, for example a 7mm Remí mag will push a 100gn bullet at around 3500 fps but a old 7X57 will make 3300fps, however with a 175gn bullet the 7mm magnum pushes this bullet 400fps quicker than the 7X57.
