I will probably use the rifle for hunting and a little bit of steel target shooting.
500 yard hunting?? For what?? Read this thread.

300 yards is more realistic. I really want to go off here, but I will refrain.
BTW, a hunter is not a target rifle.

Go ahead and go off my friend. I said I wanted to use the rifle for hunting and for some target shooting. The reference to range was merely that, a reference. Not once did I say I was planning on shooting any wild game at 500. I am well aware of my capabilities, and will become aware of the rifles capabilities if and when I get it prior to doing any long range shooting at any game with it. I had no intentions to ruffle any feathers.

Slight thread tangent......

One of the things that I find a real nuisance on a hunting rifle is the noise these cheap plastic stocks make.So,after you're done stiffening forend,you might want to fill buttstock with something.Also look at sling/swivels for noise.

JMO,but stock fit is more important on a hunting rifle than it is on a bench gun.Am sure serious BR competitors can argue that point.....And we'd have to agree to disagree.

I like the way some of the cheap factory plastic stocks "handle".To the point of copying them in wood.But nice wood vs cheap plastic on a serious hunting rig?Give me cheap everytime.

Since .308 is nowhere to be found after the run on 'military' ammo, the 7mm-08 is a great choice, especially if you reload.

Have you considered the Weatherby Vanguard S2? It is very well made, accurate, has a terrific two-stage trigger and comes in 7mm-08. It does, however, come with a 24" barrel. Mine is at the gunsmith now to have the barrel shortened to 21" and re-crowned. (Don't pay attention to the factory MSRP - I got one for $425.) http://www.weatherby.com/product/rifles/vanguard_2/series_2_synthetic

Joe I have been looking into the vanguard. I really do like those rifles. I have been looking around recently and just want to put my hands on a few more before I make my decision. I am definitely set on the 7mm-08 though. The more I read about it the more I like it, especially the reloading options for it. Unfortunately I haven't found anyone I know who owns one to shoot. That won't hold me back from buying one though!
