Looking to buy myself a graduation present rifle for an upcoming mule deer elk/combo hunt. Want a CRF model 70, vintage does not matter. Not looking for a collector, just a tool to hunt with. Thinking 7mm rem mag or 300 win mag. Anyone have one they are thinking of selling?

Good luck rusty. Now I really wished I would have bought the classic blued in walnut stock for $600 a few months back. Scotty said I fd up, I guess I could have sold it to him or someone else looking for a beater.... I just remembered I know where there is a 7mm rem mag classic stainless in decent condition. It has the tupperware stock, but the downfall is it has the boss on it. That could be cut off and you'd be at just about the right length for a useable 7mm rem mag anyways.. I'm assuming your price range is not at that level though? Roughly $950... I may check that rifle out again and possibly buy it. Still on the fence though, as I do not like the 7mm rem mag.. You didn't say how much you are willing to spend. The stainless models are going for quite a bit more than the blued models..

Good luck in your search. Seems like normal gun stores that have some used racks are your best chances. I wouldn’t pass up anything between a 270 to a 338 Win. If you can load ammo all of them will work excellent.

You would be hard pressed to do better than this ‘06; great seller too.

Your best bet is to get out and do some searching. I know most guys hate doing that, but that is where you find the deals.. When I go and pick up my new Tikka, I'll see if the shop still has the stainless classic 7mm rem mag. The classic stainless CRS had for sale here was a great deal. That rifle looked damn clean. Those 5 digit stainless/walnut rifles are hard to find. Even chambered in 30-06, which was the most common. That's probably the one I would have bought, had I been in the OP's shoes.. but then again, not really a "shooter". There are some beaters around too that have been used and abused that I've seen in the $600 price range.. But again, you have to be out there looking for them..

Rusty, this is the best I can do for you buddy:

Model 70 classic sporter 338wm in tupperware stock

You are likely not going to find a better deal on a nice classic CRF model 70 338wm. That would also be my first choice when looking for an elk rifle. Ask Scotty how well the 338 works on elk. I also would take the 338 over the 300wm or 7mm rem mag all day long and twice on sunday. You buy that rifle and if you handload, I'll send you a bag of 250gr Nosler partitions to load up..
