My answer to this is. The only reason is to make the 7 RM look good. There is no other reason.

OK! I'll bite. What is it?

It looks like a 700 (short action) to me also.

It also looks like a lean mean killing machine. Nice gun.

Gents,

It is a 700 in 308. It has been bedded to a McMillan M40A1 stock (AKA HTG)

The reason I call it an M40 clone is the 24" tube w/no flutes and the 700 action and its stock.

Its actually a cross between the M40 and the M24. Same barrel length as both and the stock of the M40 and the same action as both, but it has the twist of the M24 (11.25)

deergrunt hit the nail on the head when he said killing machine! This rifle had bagged 7 big game animals in its 1st 365 days! It is the rifle I made my first long range kill with and my shortest range kill also! Harvests include, 3 dall sheep, 2 caribou and 2 black bear. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

I also shot my first 1 hole group ever with it and my best 300 yard group.
