I have never owned a Remington, but I consider myself a "Remington-man" in the same Winchester argument as Ford -vs- Chevy (the answer is Ford, and I do own one of those). But I've always been on the lookout for a nice 700, and have especially wanted a short-action Model 7 in a made-for-short action caliber like .243 Winchester or 7mm-08. All the good things said about the 700 .... do they carry to the Model 7? What changes, and what is the same? Trigger? School me (about the rifles, not the cartridges).
