The 7mm Remington Magnum cartridge came out in 1962 alongside the Remington Model 700. It’s known for delivering the massive power you expect from a magnum rifle round with an unusually flat trajectory and surprisingly light recoil. These traits make it popular for hunting in areas with long sight lines. It’s even been used by US Secret Service counter-sniper teams. If it’s good enough to protect the President, it’s definitely good enough to bring down a few deer.
