Re: 7mm-08 for deer hunting
Well.........I bought my sons both one each at the age of 16, Remington model 7 7.08.
Now they are 23, the other 26, and they have killed tons of deer with them.
I did put a new stock, and a jewell trigger in one of them.
My 26 year old does not want another gun...as he has taken it elk hunting, and all in all it has served him well. Something to be said having one gun for all your needs.
My 23 year old, just sold his for a custom 243.
We shoot 140 grain Nosler Accubonds in the 7.08 and have never had to look far for any of his deer. Not sure how far you can kill a deer with it.... but just this year he had his longest kill, at 368 yards, and the deer ran 10 yards....
