Why the switch to the model 7?
My son can start deer hunting this fall. He has been shooting my 22-250 but I think a .243 would be more appropriate for deer. He's a smaller framed kid.
Did the 7 fit your son better?
I just kind of think it is a better rifle, has a fluted small profile barrel, compact. 700s seem to be a hot commodity right now and I just put it up for sale
