Remington Model 770, 7mm-08 Good or Bad??

I'm looking at buying a Remington Model 770, 7mm-08 with a Simons 3x9 scope. Anyone have any comments or tips for rounds to use?

If your using factory ammo only I would look into Federal Premium 140gr Barnes TSX.

the biggest piece of junk that you can buy.

The 7-08 in a good rifle will serve you well.

Thanks for the info. I went with a Tikka 7mm-08, used but a good price.
