What would be the better gun for 200-400 yard shots on deer 300 win mag or 7 mag ? The 300 has a Nikon prostaff 5 3-9x14 and the 7 mag has a leupold vx 2 3-9x50

At that range there is t going to be a bit of difference as far as killing. Pick which one you like


Only accurate rifles are interesting.

The 300 is better because it's 293 more

7 mag , less recoil , ammo is cheaper.

They'll both kill deer @ 400 yards. The 300 can tote a heavier bullet therefore having more down range energy.

For that purpose the 7MM for the lesser recoil would get my vote.

Depend on the rifle but on my two Remington 700's the .300 Win. Mag. has less felt recoil and both same weight, same scope, and stock. As for ammo have found the .300 Win. Mag. cheaper and plently of it most places, shooting 180 gr. core-loc in the .300 Win Mag.

Behind your shadow
The Win Mag delivers more energy down range and will drop most any deer in its tracks if you do your part. The Rem Mag isn’t very far behind and will drop deer in its tracks if you do your part. I’ve had both and killed many deer with each, i now own a 7 Rem mag and shoot 120 ttsx, kills like lightning. The Rem mag has less recoil and will do the job. The win mag has more recoil and more energy and will do the job, ammo is usually a little more too.


If I agreed with you, we'd both be wrong.

Guess it depends on what you already own. If I had a .308 or 3006 I certainly wouldn't buy a 300 Winchester. Personally I'd Probably get a 340 Weatherby or 375 Holland and Holland to have something bigger in that case. I absolutely love my 7mm Weatherby magnum shooting Weatherby ammunition because the combination puts deer down with proper shot placement. Only way the Weatherby makes sense is using the Weatherby ammunition. Ammo is expensive though so for deer I could see going with the Remington chambering instead of Weatherby. In the end it's all about bullet placement as I've seen folks shoot deer in the wrong place with a 7 mag and not drop it in its tracks.

I have a Leupold vx2 4-12 x50 and it's a great scope. No experience with the Nikon.

I have a 338WM, 300RUM, 300WM and 7MAG. The 7 gets the most use by far. Pushing some pretty hot handloads and it’s still a light shooting gun.

You can drop a deer in it's tracks with a 308 at 400 yards. Just find an accurate gun you can shoot well. A deer will not know the difference between a 7mm RM and a 300 WM at any range if you put a good bullet in the boiler room.

I have used both. No real difference. Both will do the job.

Browning quality has suffered lately in my opinion this is coming from a former die hard browning fan

Well, you couldn't go wrong with either one. Consider this, if you go out west one day the 300 will be slightly more effective on larger game. And I've seen more sporting good stores stock the 300 ammo when they didn't on the 7mag. I'd go w/ the 300.
