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.
