Have a Ruger Hawkeye (both all weather) in 7mm-08 & 7MM Rem Mag. Both rifles have taken a lot of yotes, hogs, and whitetails. Have not missed an game target yet. Can very easily drill bowling pins at 140 yards with the 7mm-08, have not tried with the 7 Rem Mag. I am sure I could get by just fine with the 7mm-08, but sure is fun to pull out the Rem Mag time to time. What more can you ask of a rifle? Next one will be a .375 Ruger African.
