    I have a winchester 70 in 7mm rem mag, and its one of my favorite rifles. Shoots great, well balanced, and well made. The only problem I had is that the factory synthetic stock was crap, so I put a hogue overmolded stock on it, now its awesome! Great deer rifle, but you got to be careful with hotter loads or they can mess up some meat, so I try to shoot em in the neck. As for sighting in either get someone to bore sight it or buy a bore sighter so you'll at least be on paper then just adjust your scope like any other rifle. Its a great rifle, and it didn't get called "the riflemans rifle" for nothing.

    Most accurate gun I own. It will shoot a 4 shot 3/4 " group at 100 yds with factory Remington core-lokt 150s. I have the deluxe model with wood stock and a Weaver 9V1 3-9 scope. It was made in 1974. I`ve yet to reload anything custom for it however I will pursue that in the near future.

    Can you give us a little more info?:confused:

    What year? What type of stock? What type of barrel, thin or thick?

    7mm is one hell of a great round. I have one on my long range tactical and I love the performance. It's impressive and it hits like a run away truck. :cool:

    For the record, the pre' 64 model 70 is THE Rifleman's action. It's what Carlos used, in .30-06, in Vietnam to create all that havoc.
