7mm

Hi All,
I am looking to buy a new rifle and have settled on a 7mm. I would like to hear some suggestions on brands/models. I'm looking to stay under $500. Thanks

Under 500 take the most you can get from savage and you'll be fine.

I second the savage vote. It is one fine shooting rifle for the extremely low price. They outshoot most of the big names out of the box.

Remington 700 ADL synthetic. You can get one for $400, give or take a few bucks at Walmart. You'll be hard-pressed to find anything more accurate than an ADL.

"Rem ADL"

I have plenty Rems in the safe. Have you heard about some of the really bad barrels from Rem lately? Not dissing them as each manufacturer goes through that but I've heard about more than 1 or 2 bad barrels from them IE innaccurate.

That doesn't make savage the exact answer BUT I wanted to point out whats being talked about right now.

Savage =
1. GREAT BARREL
2. GREAT TRIGGER (Accu-trigger)
3. Flimsy(sp) stock.

2 out of 3 aint bad, add to that GREAT PRICE and you've got a keeper.
