Model 70's are in my opinion, great guns. I love my featherweight, its a pleasure to shoot in 270wsm. Look the gun over and shoulder it, if it feels "right" to you, buy it. The 280 is a great round, formerly known as the 7mm remington express but remington changed the name so people wouldnt confuse it with the 7mm remington mag.

You can't find a much better all-around rig for hunting North America's hooved game. The Mod 70 Featherweight is a nearly perfect rifle, and the .280 is a nearly perfect cartridge. Enjoy!!!!!!

Both excellent choices! The .280 is a great choice and you won't be paying magnum prices for ammo either!
