Remington Power 7mm Ultra Mag – One Gun Does It All

Remington Power Level Ammunition offers hunters multiple performance levels within one firearm, which normally would only be attainable by switching guns and calibers. Most hunters are familiar with the12 ga. 3½" Super Magnum shotgun which, using 2¾", 3” and 3½" shells, is capable of delivering three performance levels in one firearm platform. Now, for the first time, this concept is being brought to the world of centerfire rifle hunting.


One Gun, One Cartridge - 3 Performance Levels

Power Level III is the Full Power 7mm Remington Ultra Mag for big, tough game at Extreme Ranges. The 7mm Ultra Mag defines the performance standard for all 7mm Caliber Hunting Cartridges. It is the highest velocity, flattest shooting, and hardest hitting 7mm caliber magnum cartridge made by any of the Big 3 manufacturers.

Power Level II duplicates the performance 7mm Remington Magnum - one of the most popular magnum calibers ever. This level is designed to take medium and large big game animals at Extended Ranges. Power Level II offers reduced velocity, energy and recoil levels when the extreme performance of Power Level III ammunition is not required.

Power Level I offers 270 Win / 280 Remington Caliber performance for medium sized big game animals at Long Range. Power Level I offers reduced velocity, energy and recoil levels when the magnum performance of Power Level III or Power Level II ammunition is not required, perfect for the deer woods, or the practice range.

    Say that you shoot 9 rounds for every round you shoot at a game animal. 2,000 rounds equals 200 animals. At 10 animals a year, I would have 20 years of service before I needed a new 300 dollar barrel.

    The 7mm and 300 Remington Ultra Magnums are indeed extreme high-performance cartridges. It is a fact that these cartridges will generate increased wear on barrels when compared to non-magnum cartridges. Since these rounds are primarily used for hunting and not high-volume shooting, this has not been an issue with Ultra Magnum fans.



    The Power Level concept can actually help alleviate barrel life concerns when full-bore ammo is not needed.

    If this round is anything like the .300 Rem Ultra Mag I suspect barrel life will probably be around 2000 rds or less especially if you're using a steady diet of the level III loads. That's alot of powder to burn in relation to the bore size. The .220 Swift also had this problem.
