....maybe?

I hadn’t been interested in many new 700’s for a while until I bought a few of these for the shelf. I walked by it for a couple days and decided what the heck. I like the 20” magnum contour and it’s threaded (I have several cans). The B&C stock feels decent too. Overall, the rifle is of better quality than I’ve seen from them in the recent past.

Had a rep give me a few boxes of the new Sierras and I threw on a VX5. Got home and shot it. I’m impressed!

It may not be the perfect whitetail combo, but it’s fun to play with!

The rifle reminds me of a Howa Alpine on steroids.

I have you to thank for my "perfect whitetail combo". It is a Christensen Arms Ridgeline with a 20 inch barrel. I have a can for it, and am interested in the ammunition you have posted. The 130 grain Tipped Gameking. Should be the equivalent of Deer Cyanide.

I like it. If they'd gone stainless (at least on the barrel) it be all that and a box of chocolates.

I dunno bro.

For a grand that 7-08 threaded Fieldcraft you just sold would be hard to beat.

I like it. It would be a good deer stand rifle but still light/handy enough to tote around. I'd like to see it in some other calibers.

I have had quite a few 700’s. All shot well, just bought a used C grade, eager to see how it shoots.

I was thinking it might be as well but when I looked up the specs the barrel material is listed as carbon steel:

my thought on the perfect whitetail combo rifle is or might be different than someone in Texas , since i hunt near the Canadian border and only for older whitetail bucks. these older bucks live weight are around 225 lbs. - 325 lbs. ,so myself i prefer a larger cartridge so i am able to most of the time knock that buck down hard and fast. where i hunt on my land in a tamarac swamp i have cut and maintain shooting lanes out to 300 yards ,lanes are 20 feet wide so i don`t have alot of time for more than one shot. i like a Ruger #1 because its shorter because it does not have a reciever so it swings up and out my enclosed stand faster. the reason for a enclosed stand its quieter,no scent outside of enclosed stand ,as long as you keep windows shut tel you make the shot,its warmer and dryer too,my movement isn`t seen either. so for me a rifle that is accurate,shoots that one shot fast and has plenty power is a Ruger #1 in a 257 Weatherby Mag. with a Nightforce scope,i use this same rifle out west with a bi-pod then ,my son has one too. >believe me this grand old cartridge the 257 Weatherby Mag. is still a great buck slayer shoots a long ways out fast and hard. good luck this fall,Pete53
