Savage 10 - 7mm-08
Ran across a Accu Trigger Savage Model 10 Predator Hunter the other day in 7mm-08. It has been factory dipped in Brush Camo with a heavy contour barrel. I paid a couple C-Notes down on it so the shop owner would put it back for me. Plan on picking it up in the next few weeks. From what I've been reading, it is a pretty popular caliber with a lot of people. Just wondering if any board members have had any experience with the 7mm-08.
Here is what the rifle looks like minus the matching scope. I've been looking at the Coyote Special scope from Nikon but don't know if it is a brush camo pattern to match the rifle. If not, I'll just strap my spare Leopold VX-2 on it and go from there.

Do a search on the site here. Much talk of the 7mm-08. My opinion it is the best all around KY round you will ever buy.

It'll whack everything fron gophers to elk. Low recoil, flat shooting.

I like mine very well.'But I would rather have it bent and dull and know I had to put it on the grindstone again and hammer it into shape and put a whetstone to it, and know that I had something to write about, than to have it bright and shining and nothing to say, or smooth and well-oiled in the closet, but unused.
You know, if you put spaghetti sauce on your ramen noodles, it tastes just like broken dreams and disappointment.

Don't have anything in the caliber but do have a model 10 in 22-250. ACCURATE...to say the least. 1/4" or little less at 100 yards with my handload once I found the right recipe"Screw the animals, they had just as long to evolve and invent rifles but they didn't....we win"

I'd have to agree. I've sold 3 times as many remingtons as savages, but those that bought the savages couldn't believe how accurate they were out of the box. My LTR is just as accurate as my model 10, the the LTR has had the Remington custom shop treatment and the savage hasn't had a bit of work"Screw the animals, they had just as long to evolve and invent rifles but they didn't....we win"

One thing I can say though is this. I've never seen a new Savage come right out of the factory sealed box with a bolt handle that had surface rust on it. I can't say the same for the Remington. The SPS Tactical I recently bought, I had to have the shop owner clean the bolt handle because of that very problem. I also made them examine the bore to make sure it was OK before I left with it. I could tell when I showed the shop owner the bolt handle, he was not pleased.

7mmx08 ammo can be pricey, other than that you'll like what that gun will do.
