Go with the 7-08, lovely caliber, just go with a regular model savage, not the axis. Granted they are light.

I tried tellin him the axis is junk compared to the 110. I also told him he had a good base rifle as it stands. Didnt think to suggest the 7 mauser though. Its a good suggestion tyler

God didnt make all men equal colonel Sam Colt did

My thought exactly, always keep your hands on what you have if you can afford to do so, I hate parting with guns unless they are pieces of crap. For hunting deer and such I prefer the larger 30 cal bullet to the 7mm also. Personally, my deer rifles are 30-30 from when I was a kid, 3006 gramps gave me for graduation, and a 308 carbine I just picked up last year.

.284, .308 a difference of .024". Now I am in know way saying that one is better then the other, but w/ the High BC and SD of 7mm bullets, a lighter bullet can be equal to a heavier .308 bullet at a given velosity and distance.
Keeping the rifle is the way to go.

That's what I'm going to do is keep it and in the future switch the barrel to a 7x57

Were I hunt we are usually shooting through some degree of brush and what not, so that's why I like the bigger bullet, if I have the possibility of hitting a twig or something I'd rather do it with a 30 cal or larger than anything smaller. My dad has a 284win its a decent gun he likes what it does to deer
