    Yes, I loaned it out to a good friend of mine. He passed away due to cancer, and the family has no recollection of the rifle or him even borrowing it. So now, I want to buy another one, to replace it.

    The link above is an 8 Mag in a 700 Classic, there is also a BDL listed at 770.00 right now.
    Shouldn’t be to difficult to find a redfield to mount on it although I’ve found the recoil quite violent on both my BDL and Classic and have higher quality optics installed to mitigate failure while in the field.

    Ray, welcome to AH! Sorry to hear of your friend and the disappearance of your 8mm Rem Mag.
    Best of luck finding what you are looking for!

    If you're not married to the 8mm Mag caliber, a 338 would be a much more versatile choice. Much more bullets and ammo available.

    I’m kinda married to the 338 but met the 8 mag on Ashley Madison and have a NSA relationship!

    A Goomar so to speak. Better looking than your steady woman, but not quite as dependable.

    Very dependable but not socially accepted!

    8 mm Rem Mag is nice but I would get a nice Leupold scope, something with nice eye relief.
