RE: 7mm-08 Model 7

I have a model 7 in 308 and it is my go to gun.VERY good shooter.The 7/08 is a fine round.while I'm a 30 cal kinda guy it's hard to ignore the sectional density and BC of 7mm bullets.

RE: Remington 742 Woodsmaster

I think in these parts more deer were kiled with 742's than marlin or winchester 30/30's.That's saying something;).They were however prone to jamming if not kept clean.
