    Looking for a very specific gun, Remington Model 7 Stainless in 7mm-08 (.308 considered) Remington discontinued these a few years ago. Looking for one in excellent condition. Will pay shipping to my FFL here in NC. Thanks and happy shooting.

    Found a different gun that ended up fitting her even better. We just bought a Kimber Montana stainless in .308 with a little Kahles 3x9 scope. Will surely start with some reduced loads but just could not resist after handling it. What a nice little rig!

    Looks like the rifle search is over.

    Got a chance to shoot the new Kimber this weekend. Did some research and it is the earlier 2 position safety model of the Montana but new and unfired. I loaded up a couple different hand loads but had an error resizing cases so I just shot the good old fashioned 150gr factory Remington core-locs.
    It is grouping about 1.5" off a not so good rest. I am sure half of that spread was my inability to old a consistent aim point.
    My wife shot 5 rounds too. Handled the recoil just fine. I think we got a great gun. The Kahles 3x9 42mm scope is unbelievably clear. At least as clear as my Zeiss scopes.
