Thanks.
I have been pleased with the Federal 140g with Barnes TSX, but I have read about the Hornady's SST but can't find any local.

I think that's broad statement that should really be preffaced with:

IMO.

I think others could say the same about the sako, abolt, 10ml, model 70, ruger, or a 336.

My savage muzzleloader might also fit in there.

Anyways, in the end personal preference is what matters. You're gun won't do any better than mine in TN.

Even with me shooting it. \:\)

Model70man,
Could not find any Hornady's 7mm-08, but they had about 100 boxes of 416 Remingtons in Knoxville anyway.

BTW. I hear you are the man to see about some yotes? We got and we want them out. PM me if your interested in talking.

I just can't brag enough on this Rem.model 7, 7-08.
I've got 26 inch barreld rifles that can't hold a light to this little 20 inch tack driver.I first zeroed the scope in at 85yrd.and cut 3 bullet holes on a quarter size target and was tickled pink. Then today i was wondering if i could do better.
Today i moved 1 click right and up,cut 2 bullet holes on a dime and did this twice on 2 diff. targets.Next i'm going for pea sized targets but just couldn't hold it steady after those to dime shots so i never pulled the trigger.
Didn't want to ruin my record
Hat's off to Remington.

I don't believe that I have ever heard of anyone sighting in a rifle at 85 yards. Obviously, it doesn't really matter what distance that you use, but,how did you happen to choose that distance?

that is the furthest shot you'll get where i hunt and very seldom get that usually set them at 50yrds. but had a wild hair i guess. this target is at 110 still set at 85.
