    Good Buy?

    Say I was looking for something to replace my Tikka 270wsm.

    7 MM Rem Mag Model 700 26" Barrel | Trade Me

    Would the above rifle be a good buy and replacement for Long Range activites?
    How many rounds would the barrel last? And what do I need to be aware of with 700's?

    I've never handled a 700 before.

    I owned the exact same gun a year ago. Loved it. Only issue i had was every now and again it wouldnt feed properly from the mag.

    Funnily enough intermittent feeding issues are the only problem i have with my rem 700 in 308 as well.

    I would of thought it was an excellent rifle in its own right...cheap as though
    Which is worse, ignorance or apathy...I don't know and don't care.
