Thread: 7mm - o8 heavy bullets

    7mm - o8 heavy bullets

    Curently use my 7-08 with 140 gamekings. very good killing / knock down with minimul meat damage, exellent accuraccy.
    Was thinking of trying something a lot heavier as per experiment in case i want to hunt boar or the like some time (actually it just coz i like to mess i think) anyone got a good heavy load.

    By the way mine won't shoot the 120's etc so i suspect it might just like a big old lump of lead

    I have shot Boar with the 7-08 using Federal 150gn factory loads, They work !

    I have no experience with anything heavier in the 7-08 , and IMHO if you want to go much heavier than 155-160Gns , you ought to go .308 / 30-06 etc etc and upwards.

    Sorry , can't be more helpful.

    What sort of velocity can you get out of the 7mm -08 case with the 175 gn bullets? Does it have enough case capacity to push them at meaningful velocities or are you down around 2,300fps area.

    Many thanks

    with 47 gr of re 19 it lists 2628 under 175gr bullets. thats quite a good speed for a heavy bullet. starting load is 43 gr oal 2.745 in
