    So my Dad bought a Remington Model 700 in 7mm Rem Mag 10 years ago from an old friend who was about to pass away. He had it stored under his bed for a while and forgot about it, he just bought a new bed and was taking the old one out when he found it laying there in it's case. Called me up a couple minutes ago and said I could have it since he had been meaning to buy me a new rifle anyway.:hsd:

    It's got a nice wood (maybe almond colored?) stock on it with checkering but I want to replace it with something not so "old school" looking. Maybe a synthetic stock or just another wood one with different, newer looking designs or something. Where can I find some? And, this is my 1st 7mm Rem Mag so do any of ya'll have one and can shed some light on it for me? Thanks.

    Possibly a dumb question, but what is that?

    Leave the stock as is and put the money into a decent scope.

    just search the gun boards for a Rem Syn take off. Most LR shooters replace with a nice stock and basically give away the new one.

    Are you referring to the pic on the remington website? If so I agree, and that's the reason I'm looking to swap it out. I checked out the sniper stocks posted earlier but they're a little extreme for me. I'm starting to like the thumbhole stocks either syn or wood...:dunno:

    Yeah, that's what stocks with those features are usually referred to as, they usually have white line spacers, ebony fore end tips, basket weave or skip line checkering, and a thick glossy finish.

    I have experience with B&C stocks on both Savage 10FP and 12FV. Great stocks.

    Just really looking for some insight on performance, how far of a range are they accurate up to, how much am I gonna spend on ammo per box, etc. I just barely got it and haven't even picked up any rounds for it. My understanding is it's a hell of a round. What's the diff b/t long action and short action?

    Lemme know if you want to get rid of the stock currently on the rifle. I kind of like that stock, and could use a replacement.

    Ammo is probably going to run between $20-50 a box depending on what you want, the last time I bought a box of Remington Corelokts they were something like $18 but that was at least two years ago so I would imagine they're even more now.

    I don't have any numbers off hand so I'll just link you to a couple write ups that should hopefully be somewhat helpful
    http://www.snipercentral.com/7mm.htm
    http://www.chuckhawks.com/7mmRemMag.htm

    The difference in a long action and short action is, well, action length. Short actions generally handle rounds like those based off the the .308 case and smaller while long actions are for lengths like .30-06, belted magnums, etc. There are also magnum length actions but it seems that most major manufacturers just use short and long.

    Ok, I'll keep you in mind. So you know, I'll prob be getting that other stock within the next month, so it might not be right away.

    I'm in no hurry. Don't really need it. But wouldn't mind having it. I have a .30-06 that's been beat to hell from hunting big game when I was younger. Never really learned the true value of some things until I got a bit older. I'd like to make it look nice again.

    Did you ever get a new stock for your gun?
