?on the rem. 700
hi. just found your site this morning, and i like what i see. i saw the post on the 700 remington. and i too was thinking of getting one. i would like to get it in 7mm-08. mostly for whitetails, 50yrd to 200yrd shots. i have this cal. in a browning lever, i like it...but.... i think the bbl. is too short. i'm getting 5", 3 shot groups at 200yrds. at 100yrds its gets 2"groups. shooting 140gn core-locks.i was thinking about the 700 classic. or if i can talk the swmbo (wife) (stands for..She Who Must Be Obayed. into letting be spend the $ for the model 40-xb. but how would the 40 be worth it? i dont do alot of walking so i dont think the wt. would be a big issue. i need some ideas.thanks for helping out the new guy!
