7mm Weatherby Magnum, Weatherby, 139 Grain Spire Point Bullet, 20 Round Box.
Weatherby ammunition remains true to the concept Roy Weatherby developed in the 1940s, the faster a bullet traveled, the better. The flatter it would shoot, the less it would drop, the harder it would hit, the better its terminal performance. At the same time, our ammunition also takes advantage of the latest in controlled expansion bullets which are capable of harnessing the higher velocities to create a cartridge that provides the ultimate in penetration, large wound channels and more one shot kills.
Introduced nearly 20 years before the popular 7mm Remington Mag., the Weatherby version gives non handloaders handloaded 7mm magnum performance, delivering 400 fps more velocity than the 7mm Mauser. Ballistically similar to the .270 Weatherby Magnum with a larger selection of bullet weights, this cartridge is well suited for any North American game as well as thin skinned African game.
