I'm with Don on this one. I couldn't believe I had to get to page 5 of this post before someone mentioned the 280 Rem. Virtually the same as a 30-06 except with the 7mm bullet. I got mine at Woolworth's and have never looked back.
Mine is a 7mm Rem mag because thats the only rifle i own right now. I'm thinking about putting a muzzle break on It. My shoulder gets bruised up a bit. I bought it to impress my father. its his favorite.
