I know some won't like this but this makes my day. Just got a text from a customer who just filmed himself one shot cold bore on a doe at 940yards with a 7 mag we built. That just makes me smile. cant wait to see the video, if I can get it from him I will post it.

Can't argue with that bullet placement. No way I could do that at 940y.

Be perfect for a 9 twist 7-08. That's what I need them for. Wouldn't take for my 180's out of the 7 Rem Mag. But this thread is proof in the pudding. A guy that knows what he's doing, a fine rifle, shot placement, and good bullet performance all the way.

Looks like it was on the mark too! Like I said in another post, I shoot a lot at long range but have not killed much at long range other than paper. I shot a doe one time at 708...it was a long poke, and for a practiced LR shooter with the right equipment,and practice anything 500-700 is very "do"able. Congrats 940 on that size of target is damn good!!!

Great shooting! I know everyone is all about the "latest and greatest" but the ole' 7mm Rem Mag has still got what it takes to reach out there and get some!
