This is my Model 700 Mountain Rifle in 7mm-08. I bought it in 1990, and it has taken deer (mulies and whitetail) and antelope pictured on my hat, plus a dozen others from '90 to '94( the hat shows my antelope from '95 to now). It’s also the rifle that my kids, a couple of nephews and my sister all used for their first deer. The jeweling is gone and the muzzle and bolt handle are worn gray, but I just seem to pick it up every year even though I have other rifles. For the first 20 years, it wore a fixed 4x Leupold, but my wife bought me a Vx2 3x9 for Christmas when the new models came out so I made the switch. I may try a new rifle this fall, but as with all my outdoor gear, it's hard to break loyalty. I trust my rifle, my scope, and the 7mm-08.
