Madison, N.C. – The successful 2007 introduction of 300 Remington Ultra Mag Power Level Ammunition provided hunters with unprecedented levels of versatility within a single centerfire rifle cartridge. New for 2008, Remington has expanded this remarkable concept to cover another popular member of the Ultra Mag family of cartridges with the introduction of 7mm Remington Ultra Magnum Power Level Ammunition.
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. 3-1/2” Super Magnum shotgun which, using 2-3/4”, 3” and 3-1/2” 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. ‘Three Guns in One’ Power Level Versatility
