Thread: 7mm-08 long wait for delivery

    7mm-08 long wait for delivery

    I have just ordered a Tikka 7mm-08 and have been told its a six month wait for Tikka to deliver, it might come earlier but we will have to wait and see. Have been happy with my Sako 85 6.5x55 but at nearly half the price I am sure the Tikka will be more than adequate just needed a faster flatter round for some exposed land in Suffolk with Reds on and something for the Boar, besides can never have to many rifles.

    7mm-08 is a very useful calibre I have paired mine up with a 25-06 which between the two cover everything in the UK. 75-120gn in the 25-06 120-150gn in the 7mm.

    as above, I plan on adding a 7mm-08 to complement my 6mm BR

    Really?

    In the mean time, handload that 6.5 with 120gr BT's or 130gr Accubonds, or try and buy some Norma Factory 120gr BT's and tell me if the Swede isn't fast or flat enough.

    You can hit 3,000 FPS no bother with 120gr's in the Swede.

    Just because you are paranoid, doesn't mean they aren't out to get you......

    Undoubtedly, we can never have too many rifles or shotguns.

    The 7/08 is a fantastic round, I might well go for one next, I am just saying the 7/08 will not be significantly faster or flatter than the 6.5.

    A new gun. Now the truth comes out! I agree with CD. A 120 out of a 6.5 is fast and flat.~Muir
