First off, this is my first post on this forum. Seems like a great place, with some good info. Anyways, my cousin is in the market for his first hunting rifle. Personally, I want to steer him towards the 7mmRem, because both me and my uncle shoot it. On top of that, I've been reloading for it for over 2 years now, and am pretty comfortable with it. However, I do see that there is a new kid on the block. Given similairly priced rifles, which one should he go with, the new 7 or the old.
