The model 7 in 260 would make a mild recoil whitetail machine shooting 140 gr bullets.
Exactly why I wanted this one. I am a big fan of 7mm's, owning two 7x57's and one 7mm RemMag. But they are all "long" actions and I wanted a 7mm in a short action w/o magnum recoil. 7mm RSAUM is impossible to find here, so I would be forced to reload.
I also own and reload for the 6.5x55 so the .260 Rem was another option, but my favorite 7mm won out again.
I can compare this against my Win Model70 SA Compact in .308.
