I have always been interested in finding a 8mm Rem Mag. Do none of the manufacturers make a version or is it a custom round/gun. Never seen one but some of the guys on the NC coast bear hunt with'em and deer hunt too. What is this gun similar to, as far as brass size. Just any info on this cal would help.

Dang it, if I had the 1500.00, I would go for that. I was actually expecting the price to be more. I don't like that stock, but I could get another if i could bare the money. That does'nt make any since to take a 700 classic and remove the wood, and put that stock on it, if your never gonna shoot it. Any more info?

I reloaded for a guy who had a 700 Classic in one. I worked up a load for it, and it kicks pretty dang good. His house got broken into. I don't know if he ever got the gun back or not. I still have dies for it and some 200 grain Nosler Ballistic tips.

Get you a 7 STW......same round necked down to a 7 mm bullet. More speed, better selection of bullets to load for, and easier to find factory ammo for if you don't happen to reload.

I agree the 7mm STW is a hoss.

Thanks doc, thats the info I've been looking for, although not interested in the 7 STW. That does give me some sort of idea of what I'm looking at.
Do they even make factory ammo for it, I've never seen any. I was wondering where I would find brass for it, when the day comes.

OK then......check the link above in PMC's reply that he furnished earler. That 8 MM is back on the market again with a lower price as the other buyer backed out.

But to answer your question, finding factory ammo for it will be a bee-otch. You will have to order it through a shooting supplier more than likely, you will not find it on the shelves at the local WalMart and Remington is about the only company that still manufactures ammo for it. In case you did not know, A 7STW uses 8mm Rem Mag brass and is necked down......same case and very popular round so ammo is easy to find for it.
