    Tell me about the 7mm08.........

    Folks,
    I've been offered an absolute mint rifle at a silly price. Prob is that its' in 7mm08 - a calibre to which i have no knowledge and not sure whether i could use it or not.

    I regularly use a 308, 223, 22-250. Regularly stalk roe, occassional red/sika and hammer the foxes.

    Thanks

    I found that on Google and it's a good article on the round.

    A colleague had a rem 700 in 7-08 for about 4 years and I loved using it if we were out together. Very sweet to fire and up to the job of anything in the UK.

    Suggest you send a pm to Roedinator - he has a 7mm-08 and loves it.

    It's a browning A bolt in pristine condition. it has one of those weird barrel harmonizers on the end, but i'll chop it off and fit a mod.

    I'm afraid to say that i just couldn't resist it. i did the usual of taking one rifle out in a large drag bag and sneaking a 2 back indoors with it. The wife has yet to cotton on and peek inside the drag bag.

    It's languishing at the back of my cabinet at the moment after 2 bad experiences with Bushnell 4200 elite scopes. I will never buy Bushnell again!

    I'm currently saving up for an IOR scope to put on it and get a gunsmith to chop off the ugly barrel hormonizer - fitting a moderator.
