    New 7mm-08 for my wife

    I'm ordering a new tikka t3 lite for my wife in a 7-08 and was wondering what everyone uses for bullets and what powder? I think I will be trying 140 Berger vld's 140 accubonds and maybe 139 sst with probably h4350. What are your loads for a round like this. Thanks

    X2 with Druss. I assume you want to reload but I have found some great factory loads that run great through my kids savage the 140 accubonds.
    ... because every picture tells a story

    Yes I will be reloading my own. I will probably start with the 140 accubonds. Does anyone reload for the 7-08? Curious what powder works good in this caliber.

    I've got an A-Bolt 7-08. Ballistic silver tips over 46 grains of IMR4350 3/4" groups at 100. Works great for deer. Prolly want a bonded bullet or a barnes for elk

    Ya it will kill out to 600 yards. If they are taking elk with a 6xc at 1000 yards the 7-08 will do it no problem.
