  • 7mm Rem Mag Big Enough?

    In your opinion is the 7mm RM topped with a 195gr rocket big enough for Africa?

    Big enough for what? You do't specify what animal you plan on hunting. If you're looking at plains game, probably a 160 or 175 gr. Partition with do anything you need to do. Might be a bit light for eland. For the big and nasties the 7MM Mag would be illegal any with the .375 H&H being the smallest allowed in Africa with some countries allowing the 9.3x62 as absolute minimum for dangerous game. I believe the 30-06 is good for leopard though in most African countries.

      I've used it on elk which is a big animal and if I do part have never lose one due to not enough gun, only use 160 in it.

        Your best bet would be to contact an African PH where you are planning to hunt and find out. Some laws are different in different countries as Paul B mentioned.
