I know that it is a good all-around rifle. I would like to get a new stock for it and I'm a little bit intimidated by the process. I am sure it isn't as hard as I can imagine. I still have a hankering to get a 06' and may do that in a year or two. I let everyone figure out this ultra-lite gun business and will probably be needing a lighter gun anyways by then, I be over 60.Nothing at all wrong with your 7! Put a new stock on if you want, or buy a new rifle if you want? The lowly 7mm rem mag is somewhat out of fashion I suppose, but that rifle is about as good of a do everything rifle as exists... if you want lighter get lighter, but if that gun shoots, it's "a good'n".
