    7mm-08 loads

    Has anyone got any load data for 140grain bullets?
    thanks

    JohnnyR. My preference is the 150gn Sierra G.K. Not a lot of difference in a hunting round.

    This load data can be lifted (and used by myself and a mate) straight off the Hodgdon tub of H4895.

    40 grn bullet head..MAX 40.5 grn.- Start 10% lower and work up depending on your rifle. My Sako gets about 2750 with 40grn, Norma brass Fed.210 LR primers

    This is for the S.P. Sierra. Matchkings H.P.are a wee bit different.

    IMR 4895 works equally good with an extra grain or two of powder. Always best to check with the recipes wherever you get them.jc

    Holy smokes....

    That chiding aside, I've found H4895 to get a little peaky. I like H4350.~Muir

    Find what is available to you and load. Hard to go wrong with the 7-08. I mean. I like Varget but it's harder to get there than here. ~Muir

    34.0 grains of Varget is too light a load. You need to be between 37 and 40.0 grains with the 140-gr bullets.
    Varget and RL-15 seem to shoot well with a full case in the .308/7mm-08, but you need to start low enough, because you may find great accuracy at a lower charge, too, around 38.0 grains, then again near max, at 41.0.
