I am looking at going from my trusty .270 to a 7 amg. I am needing some help on a good quality durable gun. I have shot Remington's for years and I am very happy with them. I hunt a lot of different terrain so long distance shots are not uncommon. Any help is greatly appreciated.

If you have been happy with Remington, then why switch. This is sort of a loaded question............you are going to get 101 different answers from guys that like their brand just as well. My 7mmm Rem Mag is a Ruger M77 (old style, tang safety) It has never let me down.

As far as long distance shots, the gun is only as good as the person pulling the trigger. (to an extent) Not looking to open a can of worms on which manufacturer makes the accurate rifle, just a basic statement.

Let's go that route then and stick to the Remington models. Do I need to start looking at certain inch barrels for the 7 mag or what. Do any of you know good places in the Murfreesboro and surrounding areas to go look for a gun too that have good pricing on these?

Barrel length - @ 26-27" for best performance with this round.

As far as purchasing one, I shop around on-line and have mine drop shipped to my local FFL guy I deal with regularly.

I posted a site earlier on another thread, check this place out........

The best value out now in bolt guns is the Weatherby Vanguard. They are sub-moa, nice looking, and built like a tank. There are a million high quality aftermarket stocks for these rifles as well. You can still get one for $399. The bolt is fluted and ported and the trigger is easily adjustable. They also have a mag floorplate for easy unloading. Remington 700's are nice, but you will never find these features on a Remington or that price on a new gun.

I have one of the vanguards. I may be wrong but I couldnt find any for $399. I know nothing about guns and adjusted my own trigger by following the directions in the book. I also have a .270 I REALLY like my 7 mag. My 270 is a Winchester model 70 btw it's great to. I guess its the macho in me that likes the 7 mag ;\)

Bought a Savage about 5 years ago. Guns great but the scope that was part of the package sucked. The recoil from the rifle rattled it in pieces.

I gotta tell ya. I wish I had got a 30-06 instead. A box of ammo for a 7 is $10+ more than other calibers.

I am just wondering what the 7 Mag will do that the 270 that you already have wont? Beleive me I am all for having alot of guns, but I just dont understand why people think the 7 Mag is that much better than a 270. Longer and heavier gun, more expensive shells, more muzzle blast, more recoil for a very negligable difference in performance.

I agree that the difference between the .270 and 7Mag is negligible, but I have one for sale if you're set on it. It's not a Remington, but you'll like as much as one.

I shoot a Weatherby 7mm mag and it is a tack driver. Great ballistics at longer distances with big speed and lots of knockdown power. I also have a 270 and 30-06 but my 7mm gives me the ballistics of a smaller caliber, but the knockdown of a larger caliber. It will kick so make sure you shoot it enough that you don't flinch just prior to squeezing the trigger or your accuracy will be affected. Good luck!

Exactly. If you are set on having a Magnum in your arsenal then go for a 300 Win Mag. A 7 Mag is nice but it's not really gonna be any better than your 270. A 300 mag would allow you to shoot heavier bullets in case you ever decided to go out west or something.

My experience is if you want to shoot longer distances, put in some range time. I bought a 7 mag also and yes it does shoot flatter but the recoi, and muzzle blast will have you going back to your 270 or whatever you shoot. Stick to what you can shoot accurately and what is comfortable for you. Just my opinion.

If you reload, 30 caliber bullets are more readily available also.
