    Border cut rifled barrel in 7mm-08

    Hi All,
    I have recently been talking to Lee at border barrels about rebarreling my rifle with a cut rifled barrel in 7mm-08. I had intended to look to use 139gn hornaday sst or soft point as my bullet of choice, have any of you guys out there got a cut border barrel in 7mm-08, and if so have you any experience with 139gn bullets, any response would be appreciated

    Save your money and buy an archer barrel.

    I have an archer in 6mmbr that shoots in the .1's its just not worth the extra cost.

    I also shoot a 7-08 but with a lothar walther barrel. Great round, I use 140gr Nosler BT's totally devastating.

    Hi Steve
    Thanks for the reply, the day my variation came back there was a standard 7-08 tikka 595 advertised on this site, which I managed to acquire. That was all well over a year ago now, to say that I am both happy with the rifle and the caliber is an understatement. So unfortunately for Lee at border barrels, he'll have to wait untill I've worn this one out.
