How Did I do

How did I do guys. Picked up a stainless, laminate stocked unfired factory r700 in 7 RUM with what looks to be a vais installed. I paid 600, did I do ok?

    Lucky! I thought I picked up a good deal yesterday! Friend from work sold me a Savage .270 that hasn't been fired, no scope mounted with the Accutrigger for $200.00. Of course it is getting re-barreled and is my new project rifle. I was actually thinking about the 7RUM or STW. Good job buddy.

    You really scored man. Im not really a remington guy, and had no intention of buying something so large, but I saw it for sale and thought it was a good deal so I bought it. I found one on gunbroker for 780, so I guess I didnt do too bad.

    You got a good gun at a good price.
    I notice it is NEW.
    I just bought a used weatherby mark v 300 weatherby at a good price.
    How did I do?
    Don't know yet until I shoot the rifle.
    If they shoot well we did great, if not I may have bought a good stainless action to build on.

    You got a new gun, how bad could it be.

    Good job, that 7RUM is on my list.


    Speaking of deals, the Cabelas in Hartford Conn. has a Weatherby(Jap) in 300 Roy riding in a McMillan molded wooland camo stock for $599.

    That weatherby is a deal, and I thought I got a good deal.
    I called them and it's been sold!
    I was going to buy it!

    Couldn't go too far wrong. The only question I would have is how does the throat look? The 7RUM won't take too many rounds without some wear and tear. Could be why it went so cheap??........Rich
