Rem model seven 308

Picking up a Remington model 7 tomorrow it's a .308 dark walnut satin finish blued metal with iron sights any input? Looking to get a scope will a 3-9x40 clear iron sights with medium rings or will I have to go with a 2-7? Hope to find a Leupold gloss finish

Nice, congrats, I think you will love it, I've been wanting one in 7mm-08. I would think med rings should clear the irons.

I have been using Model Seven Remingtons for my woods rifle for around 25 years. I personally would take the iron sights off and plug the holes.

Re: Rem model seven 308

If the scope is short enough might not even come close. They scope I have on mine doesn't even make it to the back of the ramp. If it's as good as mine, the bullet hits where ever I put the crosshairs. It'll cloverleaf at 100yrds and anything inside of 50 makes one ragged hole(if I do my part). Never had a deer run more than 15yrds using Win 150gr factory ammo. Heck, I've had it for 20 years and I don't know if the scope caps come off, I've never had to adjust it.

Remember, shoot straight and shoot often.
Good... Bad... I'm the guy with the gun.

I have one in 7mm 08. Years ago I took the iron sights off and plugged the holes. It is my favorite of my center fire rifles.

Re: Rem model seven 308

I bought a ss/synthetic in .308 when they first came out.I could never get it to do much better than 2" but I made some of my best shots with that rifle.I have another one in .243 for my kids and that one shoots well under an inch.I think I'm gonna grab another one in .223.I realy like them but can't understand why they discontinued the ss/syn.

I have one in a 260 and found out grouping let each shot cool down, that pencil barrel gets hot quick. Also being light in weight hold on to it good in the rest.

Re: Rem model seven 308

Yes.. med. scopes will be ok for a 3x9x40 slide a dollar bill underneath the barrel down along the stock, take note where the bill binds.. remove the barrel/action assy. take a deep socket slightly smaller in dia. than the stock cut out and sand down those high spots until the bill slides down the whole way to the end , remount barrel. mount scopes.. your Model 7 will group Factory .308 inside 1.5 inches..

good luck enjoy your Model 7

When you're done floating that bbl please seal up the wood! You'll thank yourself later when you're hunting in the rain or the temp swings and the wood absorbs moisture and swells against the bbl causing all kinds of funky accuracy....or lack thereof. I use Tru-Oil myself cause it's cheap and I have it. Poly or lacquer or anything for sealing wood works.

You really under estimated the ramifications of the boondoggle you have just perpetrated!

Re: Rem model seven 308

You'll have terrible experiences trying to get it to shoot well. Sell it to me to avoid the frustrations!

Really though, you'll love the little gun as I have two--a 6mm and a .243--and they both shoot really well and are a treat to carry. I would also suggest you removed the iron sights and put fill plugs in, but be sure to package and store in your safe to avoid losing them.

Enjoy!
