The 7mm Magnum was originally designed by Remington Munitions for use
with commercial hunters, but has since been adapted by the Imperial Army
for service with sharpshooters. The 7mm "Mag" cartridge is one of the
largest available that is still considered a small arm munition. It packs
a large amount of gunpowder, and is capable of putting a large hole in a
bantha at nearly two kilometers away.
Attempts were made to try and silence the loud blast that is made when
the rifle is fired, but the Imperial Army's best efforts were futile.
Eventaully, a working silencer has been pressed into service, but
decreases the rifle's normal range slightly. In addition to the sound,
the 7mm Magnum has a voracious recoil and an unwary shooter can easily
injure his shoulder if not braced for the shot.
