I do alot of still hunting for deer and I have been looking for a light carbine style rifle. I have been looking at all kinds, I don't care for the feel of the Ruger or the Browning. I like the size of the Model 7 but don't like the forend on the regular model. I handled a used Model 7 MS (Manlicher Stock) and really loved the full length forend. The one I handled was a .243 and I really love 7mm's and was thinking of getting one in 7mm-08. Any opinions on the rifle and the caliber.
