    I visited a gun shop in mtns. of NC this week and held several new camo M700 7mm-08s. One was a 22" barrel and one was an 20" barrel and gun was slight bit smaller. With the 7mm-08 would either barrel shoot well at 200-300 yards?

    I have a TC encore in 7MM-08 shoots very well manageable recoil, shoot very well for deer I would say 30YDs with a good round should not be a problem.

    I have the Rem 700 in 243, and the 10th rounds down the pipe and I was covering with a penny in 2 shot groups while sighting in.

    I have floated the barrel and have a B/C stock. Also lighten the trigger.

    I tried the factory rem scope and it wouldn't reach paper, didn't bother to check mounts as the factory Glass has a marriage with an air rifle in its close future, for the price and caliber the 7mm-08 is an awesome round. Easy to load...

    This was the first round I ever reloaded for and I love it. Varget or 4064 will print a small clover at 100 yds with Nosler 120 or the Sierra's.

    Re: New Rem. Model 7 243 Predator today.

    After searching the Rem. website I found just the gun I have been looking for. A Model 7 Predator camo fluted 22" barrel in a 243. Picked it up today in Charlotte after a week of waiting to get shipped in. Gun feels great & I an impressed.
