I don't think you will be disappointed. Ammo is fairly easy to find. I have a 7mm-08 in a BLR and love it. Modest recoil.

It's a good, accurate rifle. I personally don't like the fit of the stock (to me). In 30-06, I have a Rem. 700, Winchester Model 70 (Pre-64) and a Browning A-Bolt that just feel better to me.
