    I'm in complete agreement. I have a leupold 1.5-6X 3i scope on mine in talley lightweight mounts. It weighs 6 lbs 2oz with a sling. It's a tack driver. I was torn between the 7-08 and .308 both of which I already have and greatly respect. The...

    About those label makers.... My wife bought on for me at Christmas time and I made labels for my Dillon turret storage bases. I can tell at a glance which caliber is needed, BUT I noticed the other day that the labels are beginning to peel!...
