    Thanks for the advice!

    Picked up a box of Hornady - Precision Hunter 7mm Rem Mag 162 gr ELD-X. I will get some time to run a few rounds through the gun this Friday before the Saturday opener.

    Yes, I would be happy with 1" group at 100 yards. If the 7MAG doesn't pick up it's game I always have the tried and true A-bolt -06 with me.

    Again, appreciate the advice and replies. Thanks, Daubs

    Extremely rare if you bed, float, reload, and have a halfway decent trigger.

    In several dozen rifles I've had one that was a lemon...factory barrel was total crap. New barrel and good to go.

    While most new rifles have no soul, they tend to shoot pretty well right out of the box.

    Example here:

    My nephews lefty Rem. 700 youth in 7-08...20 inch barrel, bone stock, crap trigger.

    Took 3 shots to get things close, shots 4-8 with the first load I tried with 140's:



    Second load shot fair too. Ended up going with this load for now, less recoil and a modest load, plus I have an 8lb tub of H380 that needs to be shot up. The .284 120 Nosler BT is also a damn good hunting bullet too...digs deep and holds together well for a standard cup and core.

    This is easy. Buy a box of HSM 168 Bergers. I shotjust about every brand and weight before finding the store bought Bergers would shoot 1/2. The only thing better was RWS ID Classic whitch shoot 1/4 inch. They were 177 gr. Made in Germany.

    Hornady 139 superformance on left, 168 precision hunter on right. 100 yards. Much better than the federal 150 ballistic tips.

    Ready for the opener tomorrow.
