  • 7mm WSM Winchester Short Mag 162 grain Hornady ELD-M- ~The 7mm Winchester Short Magnum is a twenty-eight caliber centerfire rifle cartridge developed in partnership with Browning Arms Company and Winchester, making its debut and introduced to the shooting public in 2001. The new 7mm short magnum cartridge is chambered in Winchester’s Model 70 bolt action rifle. The 7mm WSM is a commercial cartridge based on the 404 jeffery cartridge case, shortening to 2.100″ and necking down to .284″ caliber and sharpening the shoulder angle to 35 degrees. The 7mm WSM cartridge achieves its useful purpose as an excellent long range cartridge for, mule deer, sheep, black bear and elk, .284″ caliber is a time proven caliber for elk and deer size game animals.

    The 7mm WSM cartridge is a well thought out cartridge as Winchester is no stranger in .284″ caliber cartridge development. Winchester has now developed 2 cartridges in this caliber; (284 Winchester in 1963), and (7mm WSM in 2001). The 7mm WSM loadings show a velocity of 2910 feet per second for a 160 grain bullet for deer and sheep hunting and this translates to moderate recoil for the shooter with plenty of bullet energy at the 500 yard mark to flatten a larger deer size animal.

    The 7mm WSM cartridge, chambered in a short actioned light-weight rifle may well be the ultimate combination for a superb mountain rifle, that offers a slight increase in bullet frontal mass and energy than that offered by the 270 WSM in rugged terrain and most rifles chambered in this cartridge show plenty of accuracy with long range 160 grain weight bullets.

Thank you for visiting Choice Ammunition!Home of Premium Ammunition- 100% Hand-Loaded in Western Montana.

As you may know, the ammunition and firearms industry is experiencing unprecedented times beginning with COVID 19 coming from China in early 2020. Some talked of defunding police departments about the same time, even as riots and lawlessness raged on in our cities with unrest. We then saw a very contentious presidential campaign and ultimately- an inauguration of what could be a very unfriendly 2nd Amendment administration controlling both houses of Congress. For these reasons and more, we see demand at all time highs in the industry, in addition to mass shortages of components. I personally do not see things changing any time soon either...

With this, we are doing everything possible to hand-load and get products shipped in a timely manner, but we cannot simply turn machines up like others! Any back-orders on this website that we allow, we feel will ship in a reasonable period of time and we are averaging about 2-3 weeks presently. However, we are reliant on our suppliers to deliver components to us also, and that can unexpectedly be delayed on occasion. When this happens, it is possible to see 30-60 days, and sometimes more- to get ammunition sent out to you. Please know, all backorders will be filled at the price you purchased the ammunition for. If you find something elsewhere- we are happy to cancel any order.

We try to answer all office calls and prefer calls over emails or social media. We ask you to please refrain from calling or changing your order unless it is absolutely necessary- keeping in mind the time-frames I mentioned above. Every call we answer removes the focus on sourcing components and loading/shipping your ammunition!  We promise to get your order out as soon as we possibly can- yet, ask that you please understand this crazy market we are all in- if indeed you are delayed!

We do not believe in price gouging or increasing margins in a market such as this- and we will do everything possible to remain competitive with “factory” ammo, while providing our premium hand-loaded ammunition to the market. It does appear that prices may increase this year however, as there is much volatility in pricing for our brass, bullets, powder and primers.

Thank you for considering Choice Ammunition if you are a new customer- and thank you for another order if you are returning. We truly appreciate all of you and have built our business from going the extra mile with our products and for our customers!
