    Good morning Leavenworth,

    I too am 5' 11" and 200 lbs. I have had many Remington model 7's. They fit like a glove for us larger framed guys. Almost like a real sweet mountain rifle if you will.

    I would look at a regular Remington model seven at your LGS if you can and try to imagine that platform with a way nicer and better fitting stock on it. I hope this helps somewhat.

    Looking forward to checking out this new Model 7 in 6.5cm.

    Trying to decide whether to go with it (assuming it's cool.... minus the trigger as always), or get a .308 Mountain SS and swap the barrel for a 6.5. Like the idea of sticking with the 700 platform, but also like the compact actions akin to the M7 and 600 series.

    You can't go wrong with either platform.....

    I seem to have lost were a member commented on the Model Seven having a lot of bolt slop and did not like the small bridge of the Model Seven . I understand bolt slop but what does he mean when he says it has a small bridge . Is he talking about the rear portion where you mount the scope ? Also would a Model 700 in short action have the same sort of bridge or is it longer ? I think what I'm trying to get at is Model Seven Short Action the same as a Model 700 Short Action ?
    Thanks

    Model 7 is a Bit Shorter action ( 1/2 ) then the M700 and the rear bridge where the scope base would mount is a shorter area by about (1/2) - Makes NO diff in the WORLD of anything ! the Ejection port area is actually longer by about (1/4) then the M700 - RJ
    A 375 H&H Chambered rifle is the Real KING !

    The model 7 has a larger ejection port compared to a 700? Interesting.

    I am 6'2" and 200+. I built a model 7 in 300 SAUM about a year ago. It came with a laminated stock from the factory and it fit quite well. I switched it to a Wildcat stock, and was able to keep the LOP full length. With the pad installed it fits me really good (this is first build I have done and first long stock) it fits me very well, and is very effective.
