    I'm confused...coulda swore that Marlin's XS-7 (X7 short action) was chambered for the 7mm-08...
    or did you just want to have a heavy barrel, which Marlin doesn't offer yet?

    you're correct, the XS7 does come chambered in 7mm-08. just wanted to a longer, heavy fluted barrel. i have already restocked it with a Boyd's grey laminated stock. just wanted to do a semi custom XS7 in 7mm-08 for informal target shooting.
