Default Velocity and recoil

7mm mag has more of both.

In the average Georgia woods, the deer's really going to notice, unless you're a real poor shot.

Which one?

You also have 7x57 Mauser and 7mm-08 and the 280 Remington(which was renamed to 7mm Express back in the late 70's but was re-renamed back to 280 Remington in the early 80's).
There is the forgotten offshoot of the 30/30,the 7-30waters.
The Danish 7X61 Sharpe & Hart from 1953(another belted magnum).
Or the tiny 7mm Rem Benchrest.
Or the 7x64 Brenneke(very popular over in Europe).

Mike
well that certainly cleared that up!

Nine out of 10 times when someone says "7mm" they are talking about a 7mm Remington Magnum.
