    My buddy and I were in the hunting lease Sunday, building our new treestands, and testing his new 4X4 truck - Ford F350 Diesel Crewcab - Great for The Big Guy!

    We also sighted in our deer rifles - my .30-30 bolt-action and his Remington Model Seven in .308Win. That Remmy was shooting great! Then Bob, that sorry SOB..... makes me an offer I couldn't refuse - I now own that Model Seven! ;)
    Bob has an identical rifle in 7mm-08 that he prefers, and another in 7mm <somekindashortMagnum>.
    They had logged out a lot of the mature pines from our lease, so our shooting distances are greater, and the Thutty-thutty may be hard-pressed to do the longer shots. Now, it won't be a problem! This rifle has taken Bob's last seven deer - so I know it'll do the job! If I miss, it's ME!
    Nice rifle.... camo synthetic stock, 20" fluted barrel, Titanium Nitride finish, 2.75-10 Burris scope. Weighs like a .22 rifle! But recoil isn't bad - we were shooting 168 grain loads.
    I have a box of 150 grain Rem Core-Lokt and a box of 180 grain Winchesterr Power Point loads, but need to do some handloading. Already have what I need, except bullets! I have been handloading 7.62X51 for some time for my military rifles.
    I'm jazzed - this is a NICE rifle!

    Remington make a good rifle, I've been wanting a 308 and have looked at a few. I curently use a lever action 30/30 can't be beat as a bush gun.

    I bought a Remington Model 700 in .243 a few months ago and finally this last Thrusday I had a chance to sight in the scope. At 100 yards it took me four rounds to hit the 10 ring. I am amazed at how accurate this rifle is! I love it.

    Wolf sounds like a good one ,Rem has always made a great rifle ,I have a 308 built on a 98 rec. that I like but I hunt with a 303 Brit that I cut down the barrel on to 16 1/2" it's taken them out to 350-400 the right of ways around here.
    I know you'll be happy with it for many years >

    You will enjoy, guarantee it!

    Agreed, I have a cut checkered R700 and a lot more modern one and they both shoot right well.

    [winkthumb]You will love that model seven,I have been toting one around the deer woods for over 20 years. It would be the last gun I would ever sell,I might give it to one of my sons though.
