Great caliber and sweet rifle. Definitely all you would ever need for a rifle IMO. I have a Savage LTW bolt in the same caliber.

As long as you are not dragging it through thick brush I don't consider any gun too pretty to hunt with. Definitely looking forward to photos!

I've been thinking about a BLR in 358 too but since I don't reload I don't know how easy shells are to get
358 is a great round but sort fixes a problem that doesn't exist. That 7mm-08 will do everything and more and won't bust your shoulder in the doing.

If thats the the case then join the rest of us as "need" has little to nothing to do with it!! It's not an addiction if no one is getting hurt by it. At least thats my story and I am sticking to it.

I had never owned a 7mm/08 till I bought my son one in a tikka t3 lite for his 13th birthday, he killed a big doe and a 9 point buck

You got the perfect caliber for that gun. They are great in any caliber, but 7mm-08 would have to be the best. I'll bet you decide it's not too pretty to carry once you shoot it.

Great caliber and a great platform. Got my first and only BLR in .308 from a fellow member here not long ago. The action is slicker than bacon grease on a brass door knob. Well done!

Congrats on a fine lookin' rifle and I think that finish will hold up better to abuse than the old polyurethane finish they used to put on them! Fine caliber too!:beer:
