    7mm-08. Who uses one?

    Hi, all. I've got a Remington 700 sps in 7-08. I like it, hits like a .308, shoots flatter & less recoil I've put it in a Boyds thumbhole stock. Just wondering how many on here use 7-08 & what powder and bullet weight you use?

    I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy!

    I have a 260 which I was considering 7-08 for once the barrel is shot out , with the same bullet weight how much flatter is the 7-08 than the 308?
    Right where's those stones , I'll start !

    Dont think it really matters for stalking at normal deer stalking ranges. For paper or long range target shooting maybe. There is also the ammo cost/availability side of things to take into consideration.

    I use a 7mm08 shoot 120g noseler ballistic tips and 140g noslers using rl15, works very well!

    I use 139gr Hornadys & 140gr game kings over IMR 4064. Gives me 3/4 inch at 100. Even better with a high mag scope on.
    Any one tried ramshot big game?
