Re: Help with a Gift
In my opinion, and I have owned both in a Model 7, the 708 has less recoil than the 308, but both have pretty good muzzle blast because of the short barrel. Both guns in the Model 7 config loved the light for caliber bullets, 120 gr in the 708 and 130 gr in the 308.
For the afore mentioned reason, I want a .260 Rem Model 7 so I can shoot 100 gr Nosler Partitions at around 3200 fps in a lightweight carry gun. Several folks I have spoke with speak very highly of the 125 gr NP and NBT in the same rifle at around 3000 fps as being bad medicine for whitetails.
