A cheap price on a great cartridge for those who adopted the 7mm Winchester Short Magnum and need good quality hunting ammunition from factory and solid brass that they can legitimately reload multiple times. This is an excellent factory round for the caliber and offers the strategic performance that was built into the cartridge with the lower bullet grain weights, which this features (at 150 grains).
The projectile can achieve impressive 3100 feet per second velocity and 3200 ft. lbs. of energy at the muzzle exit. This is right in line with expectations for the cartridge. The Federal ecosystem ensures top quality components and offers a good price for a round that is ordinarily quite high due to lack of distribution and broad market consumers who aren’t shooting a ton of it.
Perfect for everything from deer to small black bears this is a premium short action load that gives great bolt throw, fast follow up and exceptional ballistics on the 150 grain weight.
The Boxer priming makes reloading very easy and the brass is usable for a log time if treated right. The Federal factory in Anoka that loads this ammunition is known for their well above average reliability and consistency.
