Default 7mm rem mag rifle?

Ok I'm needing for help. I'm looking at a Browning Xbolt Hunter or a Winchester Model 70 Sporter? Which would be the best?

Or if you have another suggestion for a 7mm rem mag that would be appreciative. I would like to stay in the same price range though with a 26' barrel.

26" barrel is a lot of barrel and you may of wished that you got something shorter. However, I would vote for the Browning just slightly over the Win model.

Well, I've heard to take full advantage of the 7mm mag you need a least a 26' barrel.

My guess is the extra barrel length will only net you 100-150 fps but the trade off is a much easier handling rifle especially if used out west in the mountains where every ounce reduced is a bonus. My Weatherby's have the 26" barrels and I just don't care for them. Maybe if I was just sitting in a blind but to carry through the woods, not for me. Good luck on your purchase!

Default I would double check on their Company websites...

I always thought that the default barrel length for both magnum Winchesters and Brownings was 24 inches. Weatherby was always the weirdo with LONG 26 inch barrels. The Ruger Number 1s were always special in that they had 26 inch barrels but the same overall length due to the short action length.
