No doubt that heavy hitting calibers would give a stout recoil in a lightweight rifle. Model 7 in 280 rem, sounds like a good marriage to me. I was disappointed when my son sold his/my 260 rem in a Browning A-bolt. The model 7 in 260 would make a mild recoil whitetail machine shooting 140 gr bullets.
