This is my Remington 7400 semiauto carbine in .30/06 with a Redfield 3x9 scope. It has an 18 ½-inch barrel that is extremely handy in close quarters, yet it still shoots 1 ½-inch groups with my reloads. When I know I am going to hunt in the thick stuff, this is my go-to rifle. Sometimes after carrying a full-length gun in the morning, I might pick this lighter one for the afternoon hunt. Compact, lightweight, accurate, reliable and powerful, this rifle has it all. The scope can easily be removed if necessary, and I can use the Hi-Viz open sights. Since it’s easy to operate, this is also the rifle I loan to other hunters in our party if they have gun trouble.
