Re: For all you people thinking of getting started but are intimidated by the dollars

I have a Remington model seven stainless steel chambered in 7mm saum. I traded a Remington 788 in 308 straight across for it. The guy did not reload and was sick of paying 40 bucks a box for ammo. It shoots under an inch at 100 yards with my reloads. It is lightweight and has felt recoil of a 308. It is my first long range rig. I figure with the dies, brass, and a centerpoint scope i have under 850 dollars in it. It has been alot of fun but i would like to upgrade it to a better stock, unfortunatly noboby offers one.

    Actually there are some out there to be had.

    The Seven hasn't been around long, but the longer they are, the more aftermarket gear will become available.

    Model 7 is a nice little rifle to start with, and being a Remington you can do a lot with it in the future if you decide to upgrade.

    Good thread. Everyone I meet is intimidated by the money but I have still managed some converts............... Still my best long range rifle: savage 116bgh 24" 338 win $490...... re-chamber to 338 edge $50.......muzzle brake $75.........choate tactical stock $200......harris bipod $100........... 4200 elite 6-24x50 $550.....elite 1500 lrf $300 Ammo$$$$oh ya...............5/16 group at 100 and the ability to put serious hurt on a 5" target over and over again at a thousand yards $PRICELESS$ ............ My first long range gun was an AK on steroids $640 and that little 4X scope that came with it had turrets and got me hooked. I have heavily modified that rifle but most people would be shocked at what the most basic tools are capable of with a little elbow grease and a whole bunch of trigger time..
