From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:
"The 7mm Weatherby Magnum is a powerful 7 mm rifle cartridge offered by the Weatherby firearms company in their Mark V rifles. The cartridge was one of the first cartridges offered by the Weatherby company.
It was developed in the 1940s by Roy Weatherby. The 7mm Weatherby Magnum did not get a lot of exposure until the early part of the 1950s when the Weatherby rifles became more avaliable. It is a great cartridge for a one-rifle hunter that shoots long distances. The 7mm Weatherby is the premier 7 mm rifle. It has taken game of all sizes around the world. The 7 mm Weatherby Magnum is lacking in knockdown power for dangerous bears."
