hunting and long-range shooting. It was introduced in 1962 by Remington Arms
Company and quickly gained popularity among hunters and shooters for its flat
trajectory, high velocity, and long-range accuracy. The 7mm Rem Mag bullet has
a diameter of 7.2mm and a length of 71.12mm. It is a bottlenecked cartridge,
meaning that the neck of the cartridge is narrower than the base, which allows
for a higher pressure and a faster muzzle velocity.

It is commonly used for hunting big game such as elk, moose, and bear, as well as for long-range shooting competitions. The bullet is available in a variety of weights ranging from 139 to 180 grains, and can be used in a variety of rifles including bolt-action, semi-automatic, and single-shot rifles. Overall, the 7mm Rem Mag bullet is a versatile cartridge that offers hunters and shooters excellent long-range performance and accuracy.
